One of the World’s Largest Private Collections of Latin American Music Just Hit the Web

Over the last 30 years, Alejandra Fierro Eleta — also known as Gladys Palmera — has amassed the world’s largest private collection of rare Latin American recordings. The archive includes more than 50,000 albums, photographs, and other ephemera, focusing largely on Afro-Cuban music from the 1950s. Although the collection primarily lives in Palmera’s library in the small town of San Lorenzo del Escorial near Madrid, listeners have been able to get a glimpse into the impressive compendium on Radio Gladys Palmera, a radio station that she founded in 1999 to share and showcase her musical findings.
