This work strives to document the evolution of the estilo bravio by examining the work of Lucha villa, La Embajadora de la la Cancion Bravia (the Ambassador of the Cancion Bravia). Villa's trademark style, limpio sexy (clean sexy) expanded the genre of the cancion ranchera as a site for the creation and re-creation of Mexican feminist praxis. Furthermore, the markers of her trademark limpio sexy estilo bravio to interpret the cancion ranchera created a feminist tradition out of misogynistic lyrics.
