Biography

Judith Bustos (born in 1945 in Iquitos, Peru) better known as La Tigresa del Oriente is a singer, hairdresser and makeup artist. Due to the popularity of her videos on YouTube (the video for her single “Nuevo Amanecer” surpassed the 5-million hits mark in 2008), she has become one of the most widely known Peruvian artists in the world, second only to presenter Laura Bozzo (whose talk show occasionally resembles that of American presenter Jerry Springer in controversy and drama).

Bustos became a cosmetologist at an early age. She later emigrated to Lima, expecting to be involved in show business in some way; with enough persistence, she became a makeup artist for Lima’s television stations, starting an extended career that has lasted over twenty years. Her desire to sing and dance for an audience made her develop the concept for La Tigresa in 2002.
La Tigresa is well known for her leopard garb, makeup and appearance, and for the choreographies staged by her dancing troupe, which includes three women and one man. Her first single “Nuevo amanecer” (New Dawn) is a self improvement anthem that made her a Youtube sensation in Latin America. She has since been called “The Youtube Queen” by local Peruvian press.[1] Her videos for her first recording are unique, if low in budget, and were filmed in the Peruvian jungle with her “exotic” dancers. Other singles from Bustos include: Mi canoa, Fiesta en la selva, Trabaja flojo trabaja, Anaconda, Tránsfuga de amor, and Hombre de Madera, “Homenaje al Papa Juan Pablo II.
