I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to share a meal with and interview this extremely talented and charismatic artist who I’m fortunate to have as a friend and colleague, as we are both members of The Mambo Legends Orchestra. She also has her oen band and travels around the world as a solo artist.
Although Cita is the daughter of one of Salsa most beloved departed legends, Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez, she has established herself as a great performer and crowd pleaser herself. She’s also acting and singing in a musical play, “El Conde Y La Condesa”, an off Broadway show about her recollections of growing up as the daughter of a legends and what that was like. I saw the show in it’s 1st iteration and I loved it. It mostly a monologue. It’s funny and sad and musically up-lifting. She’s captivating in her performance! There will be 2 more shows next week. There’s a link below for more info and to get tickets.
In this video interview, Cita shares with you, the followers of Salsa Legends And Master Academy, about her beginnings and what she’s done since then and a little about what she has coming up in the near future. Enjoy and don’t forget to share with your Salsero friends. Thanks
