Sandra Velasquez from Pistolera + Egypt

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Sandra Velasquez, leader of New York's politically conscious rock-ranchera combo Pistolera guest djs during the first hour of tonight's show. She'll share the Mexican songs she grew up with - songs that later influenced her unique brand of Mexican / American musical hybridism (which you can experience in person when Pistolera plays Joe's Pub on Friday, February 4th!).
