    Destiny is a long road. Lifelong.
    Sometimes it involves a whole familyline. I don’t remember how old I was the first time I heard my grandfather’s music. I was a baby. His music was always on in our home. I never fathomed the idea that, that was my family on those records.
    Every barbecue we held at home with our big family, everyone brought guitars and albums, played music into the night. One of those nights, my grandmother sat me down and explained how Frida Kahlo would annoy her when she would come around at the club her uncle owned in Mexico City. Such funny stories! And how my dad would have to go find him at Frida and Diego Rivera’s homes after a “noche de Bohemia” party after hours. Was along night of poetry, art, music and political discussions...or fights!
    My grandfather was classically trained as a vocalist, composer, guitarist and bassist. But he picked up the congas and started a mambo group called Gregorio Sierra y Su Conjunto Grijalva. Had a deal with RCA Victor, MX, came out in some old Pedro Infante movies, and such. Wow...
