Glitter and eye contacts…I’m super blind but I need to glow — ha ha ha!

Who do you most want to hear at SXSW?
All the bands, all the people, all the laughter and music around! I’m excited!

What’s your favorite venue to play?
Any venue with good sound system and good crowd is good to play!

What YouTube clip best represents you?
I would say my video “Compartir” for now.

2) “Brindo” – Devendra Banhart
3) “Cielo Rojo” – Bimexicano
4) “Amor eterno” – Rocio Durcal
