Alejandra Ribera - La boca

Born in Toronto to an Argentine father and Scottish mother, Ribera exposes both sides of her heritage here, from the sultry, cha-cha-cha charm of “No me sigas” to the haunting bagpipes of “Goodnight Persephone.” And how she turns the Proclaimers’ rousing, anthemic “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” into a slow, aching love song must be heard to be believed.
