Famous American folk singer of the hippie era, Joan Baez, is half Mexican through her father who was born in Puebla, Mexico (the site where “Cinco De Mayo” battle took place) and half Scottish through her mother.

Since Baez’s musical start in 1958, she has released 34 studio and lives albums and has become one of the most important musicians/activists in the world, contributing most of her artistic energy to political and social causes.
