A Personal Note On A New Song

A personal-note: Though I have German/Mennonite heritage, I grew up in an area with a very heavy Chicano/Tejano influence (which is funny, because I believe historically the Germans and the Mexicans had a good relationship i.e. The Kaiser and Pancho Villa?) — The culture, the language, the brightly colored homes, the superstitions and traditions, the smells and the food — I have a good appreciation for it, and believe it or not, spent a good several years only listening to Spanish music. Lou Diamond Phillips in “La Bamba” was always one of my favorite films, and the newer animated film “Coco” made me tear up and smile with familiarity that people where I live now would just not understand.

There is a soft place in my heart and from time to time, you may hear it or see its influence in our art, so, you can imagine how excited I was when Sekrett Scilensce recorded this one! It’s half English, half Spanish, and a completely a beautiful nod to the Tejano culture.

I think it’s beautiful and hope you enjoy!!
