About Still Here: Homenaje al Westside de San Antonio
Still Here is a one of a kind treasure -- an oral history book and original music CD. From the historic Mexican Westside of San Antonio, twelve beloved elders (also known as "Corazones de Esperanza") - Josie Merla Martin, Angie Merla, Jimmy Kitchen, Guadalupe Bertha Rodríguez Flores, Isabel Casillas Sánchez, Enrique Sánchez, Jesse Vidales, Lucy Bazaldúa Dimando, Refugia Susie Bazaldúa Koppelman, Lucy Domínguez Pérez, Ray Pérez and Mildred de la Cruz Hilbrich - share their rich memories of the fruit trees, of secret healing practices, of working and falling in love, displacement and loss, floods, dancing, music and the theaters, el convivir de esos tiempos.

Acclaimed musician, composer and poet Lourdes Pérez, turned their stories into songs and then called on the impressive list of musical stars from the Westside to perform and record them.

The CD included with this book was recorded, mixed and mastered by Westside born Joe Treviño of Blue Cat Studios and features performances by: Tish Hinojosa, Bene Medina, Henry Gómez, Flaco Jiménez, Santiago Jiménez, Jr.,
Max Baca, Eva Ybarra, Lourdes Pérez, Chuy Vásquez, David González, Blanca Rodríguez, Rita Vidaurri. Beatriz Llamas, Javier Chaparro, Armando Aussenac, Al Gómez, Sauce González, Ramón Gutierrez, Mildred Hilbrich, Enrique Sánchez, Joe Posada & Roberto Casillas.

The book contains portraits by photographer native San Antonian Antonia Padilla, as well as vintage photography from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Foreword by Esperanza Peace & Justice Center director Graciela I. Sánchez, who also grew up on the Westside of San Antonio.
