I’d Give Anything(stripped), by Kris Angelis. A loving, melancholy, introspective, haunting Angelis. The spare piano accompaniment (the “stripped” part) makes this even more powerful.

Soy Chigona by Tierra Girls. A song about being a “bad ass woman” in English and Spanish is both fun and serious. The three -time Austin Music Award winning trio knows how to put message and music together for a hit. Stream/download on all major platforms. Follow at tiarragirls.com/
Bolero a la vida, single by Omara Portuondo with Gaby Moreno. I have had the pleasure of seeing Omara Portuondo live in Cuba and Gabby Moreno live in Los Angeles. It s a double pleasure to hear them sing together on this song, the first release from Portuondo’s forthcoming album, Vidas, due out next month. A diva of the venerable Buena Vista Social Club, Portuondo brings back the feel of old Havana with a modern sound through the magic of Moreno’s production skills. Stream on Spotify. Video on YouTube.
