1. La Llorona
Dakota Romero’s beautifully haunting debut recording of the classic traditional song La Llorona (English: Weeping Woman) commemorates the Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos). Her performance is dedicated to the memory of her Grandmother, Ida Mae Aragon aka Rita Rogers.
In honor of Rita’s journey to the spirit world 11 June 2012, La Llorona will have its radio debut today on KXMT 99.1 FM Northern New Mexico.
Dakota Romero is a lifelong performer with world experience, beginning her music career in her early years of life, under the wing of her father, Native Rock recording artist, Robby Romero. Classically trained, and with a degree in music, her greatest inspirations have come from singing around the world, and the musicians she has met and performed with along the way, from Buffy Sainte-Marie to Carlos Santana. With both Native and Latin American roots, she has captured the soul of her multicultural background, and continues turning heads with her sophisticated touch to pop music.
