Charo poses with guitar Charo's Discography
This is a listing of Charo's recordings (and one music video). Most people think of Charo as a talented singer and comedienne, but Charo is internationally recognized as one of the premier flamenco guitarists in the world and won Guitar Player magazine's Readers Poll as Best Flamenco Guitarist two years in a row.
