Hola,
I'm a bit slow here and just catching up on the
celebrations, food, etc conversation. It reminded me that
I have a recording made in the 1950's of my two
great-great aunts. They discuss life on the rancho in
Carmel Valley, California and it includes a song or two.
These ladies would be second generation California-born
BORONDAs, granddaughters of Jose Manuel BORONDA,
supposedly born in Jerez, Zacatecas (or Guadalajara,
depending on which family genealogist you ask). I think
the food is Spanish-California-ish by that time -- beans
cooked until they pop (but not like refried); bull's head
(the cheeks?); a menudo sort of thing, squid, etc. I am
particularly interested in the songs, which are, of course
in Spanish (though the ladies spoke English). I wonder if
they would suggest the family's origins in Mexico. Is
this something I could upload to the site, or would sound
files be too big? The songs are fairly brief if I recall
correctly.

if it is okay to use them on the Nuestra Familia Unida podcast let me
know otherwise send me the mp3's and I'll host them so the group can
listen to them. how many bites are they each? if not too big put them
individually into an email as an attachment in mp3 and send them to me.




thanks,



joseph
