Leticia Rodriguez Garza EP Release Event

 "Leticia Rodriguez's CD, La Americana, was one of my favorite recordings of 2012. Her vocals, the arrangements, the warmth of the recording, and the classic songs, made me imagine I was in a nightclub in Havana in the 1950s." ~ Michael Crockett, KUTX, Horizontes
