    1. Sorry I'm late to this party!

      First song demonstrates she's got an excellent sense of timing. You can hear the South American sensibility pretty clearly, mixed with some gospel chops maybe? She's in the pocket when she needs to be, and playing around with the timing to keep knowledgeable musicians guessing.

      This was excellent. I hope to hear more from De La Rossa soon!
