Dina Paucar (Tingo María, Huánuco, 1969) is an Peruvian Andean music singer and composer.


Paucar was born in Tingo María, Huánuco in 1969. At the age of 10 she left her hometown for Peru's capital, Lima, where she did many lower-paid jobs: street vendor, food vendor, and housemaid.

She was able to work hard and open herself a space within the Huayno music scene. Her musical albums became best-sellers and Paucar become one of the most successful singers and composers of contemporary Andean music.[3] In 2004 Dina Paucar la lucha por un sueño, a TV sitcom inspired in his life and trajectory, was aired.[4]
