Festival People en Español 2014

Strayer hired me to attend Festival People en Español 2014 and write this blog post.  This weekend was a lot of fun! It had been a LONG time since we last hit the open road and headed for San Antonio. As I’d mentioned in an earlier post, Strayer University invited me to […]

Festival People En Español, San Antonio

Festival People En Español, San Antonio

Strayer hired me to write this blog on their behalf.  Next weekend San Antonio is going to be the place to be. I’m not saying that only as a born and bred Tejana, but also because of my recent partnership with Strayer University for the People En Español Festival taking place on […]

La Mafia Album Release Party

Let’s just start off by admitting La Mafia is pretty badass! I grew up loving their music from a very young age, and their infectious Tejano sound was all over the radio during my teenage years. In fact, in high school we had Tejano dances every year where their jams like Un Millón de […]

La Foto de los Dos / The Picture of Us

This song. I haven’t been able to listen to it once yet without getting all choked up.  I think that’s because once it gets to the line …regresar a mi pueblo / por el camino viejo / y recoger mis pasos… the images of my mother and father’s faces come to mind, and I […]

New music from Shakira with Rihanna, and JLO

Two of them are “out of control,” y la otra is going back to the “block” one more time!  It was a good day in music today with Shakira and Rihanna releasing their contagious collaboration below.  You should be hearing it all over the radio pretty soon.  And also the […]

Tu Carcel by Lila Downs

Musical Classics: Tu Cárcel

Few things tell us more about ourselves than the type of music we choose to listen to.  No sé porque, but I’ve always believed that.  There’s something about the intimacy between a good song, it’s lyrics and how they speak to us that is really special.  A good song – así […]

El Ruido De Tus Zapatos

I don’t know that I fully understand the letra  to this song, but I have been singing it pretty regularly in the car. The video is even more confusing. I suppose it’s a love story or love triangle of sorts… pero como que no me cuadra.   The group singing it is La […]
