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
This night is a celebration of a new recording of Saguita al Bate, a rollicking hit song, plus a re-release of three favorite songs from La Americana!
