About

Ruben

First of all, I just want to share that I am an engineer that is a HUGE Shakira fan. Her 1998 album, Adonde están los ladrones?, was actually my first introduction into rock en Español. This album was what got me into Latin Alternative. Now a days, I find myself actively listening and looking for new music and artists that are not being played on commercial radio to showcase and share them on my blog.  By definition pico de gallo is a salsa made with different vegetables and can vary with the Latino community, similarly my blog is just that- its a musical pico de gallo. I highlight variety of alternativo music from all over the Americas and Spain. You can also catch me co-hosting a podcast about Spanish music and culture in “La Sopa”
