As far as future music, Rodríguez is taking things slowly, experimenting and planning her next album with the same care and devotion she put into the first one.

“I have the luxury to be able to control how I do this,” she said. “I don’t want to be in any ‘direction’ yet. The biggest question for me is, ‘Do I want to continue writing or creating an album that is in Spanish?’”

Why not?

“Well, I have an embarrassment,” she admits. “I am one of those fourth-generation Latinos that wasn’t taught to speak the language. So part of the reason I created this particular CD in Spanish was sort of my declaration of ‘¡déjame hablar en español!’ [let me speak in Spanish]”

For her SA show, she’ll be accompanied by another singer for harmonies and a small group led by bassist George Prado.

“I am delighted to come to San Antonio,” Rodríguez said. “It’s a place of great heart and love and spirit. This music is universal and, for me, it’s like classical music. It’s timeless and it will never go away.”
