De la Torre's Lucrecia R. Katilag, An Artist for the World endeavors to lift the veil of mystique that surrounds this baby-faced, ageless lady who commands high esteem in the world of music, particularly in Philippine indigenous music. Reading her life, one sees how the facts and figures intertwine with similar facts and figures in Philippine history and culture. And admiration is evoked for this brave, even-keeled and dedicated woman. whom, incidentally, I have known since our (unfilled, "greenhorn," awakening-to-life days at the Philippine Women's University. The De la Torre biography offers a full spectrum on the human condition, even as it draws on life's vibrant colors. "King" has seen deep shadows — those of death, frustration and tragedy. Yet she continues to paint into her musical canvas the subtle pastels of fun and humor, as well as the solid primaries of joy, triumph. and achievement.
