    Ep. 20 Remembering The Unforgettable One: Celebrating Tito Rodriguez

    Ep. 20 Remembering The Unforgettable One: Celebrating Tito Rodriguez

    It is no small statement to call someone unforgettable, however Tito Rodriguez is one case we can safely say, someone who is truly unforgettable. Sometimes it is hard to define with  words to say why an artist is so special. For me, Tito's pure sentimiento is what makes him unforgettable. Despite the fact that he joined the ancestors 49 years ago, he still is just as alive now as he was then. Today we celebrate and remember the unforgettable one. Feliz Cumpleanos to Tito Rodriguez.

A conversation with Aurora part 1

First of all I’d like to say thank you to Anahi and Aurora for this podcast exploring the hardships that women had gone through in the workplace in the 70s and earlier. That brought back a lot of bad memories & flashbacks. I didn’t work in the music industry, but I know first hand what women had to put up with. AndNow I’m aware that it was in every industry you could imagine. And it saddens me even more to realize that no women were spared, no matter where you worked.
I believe it was partially our music and our culture that helped us to get through, even though everything was male-dominated, even the laws. The music kept us going and kept us fortified. It infused in all of us a deep pride, a deeper love of the country of our origins, and a strong nostalgia for our country and family that we left behind while trying to make it in this hard city.
I love what you said at the end of the podcast, our music is important because it tells our story, it’s our identity and we have to keep our story alive. Thank you.
