ECHO PARK, Calif. - Slow, melodic and sentimental, just some of the ways to describe the bolero. Like many romantic genres of music, the bolero tells stories of love.
“My dad listened to boleros for as long as I can, my grandparents listened to boleros,” said musician Martha Gonzalez.
For Gonzalez, the bolero has been part of her family history. You may know her from the Grammy Award-winning band, 'Quetzal,' a Chicano rock band from Los Angeles.
