The Beauty That Has Always Been Here: Tejana Rebirth, San Anto Style

The Beauty That Has Always Been Here: Tejana Rebirth, San Anto Style

Playing tracks by

The Royal Jesters, Antibalas, Santiold & M.I.A, Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit, DJ Despeinada and more.

Join me as I trace my Tejana rebirth roots through música, memories, poetry, storytelling, and chisme. I cite my sources and share songs that helped pull me through, helped push me into the cenote, and up and out again.

This is the soundtrack of one San Antonian on her journey to overcome history, trust her ancestors, and find herself in four sets:

1. Gifted: Burned CDs from 2004-2009 ft. Ash DeLeon
2. The Only Mix Manny Ever Made Me, aka The Rowdy Mix
3. The Bar America Jukebox, the songs I'd always select.
4. The Many Loves of DJ Despeinada: tracks of my tears.
