KCET and PBS SoCal Public Television’s Southland Sessions present “A Tribute to Linda Ronstadt at The Soraya” which premiered last November 18 and will air on PBS SoCal on November 28 at 7PM. It’s also available to watch on KCET’s website and the PBS free app.
It features career-spanning songs from her English and Spanish albums covered by Aída Cuevas, La Marisoul, Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar and special guest David Hidalgo from Los Lobos. They also share Ronstadt’s influence on their musical journey.
Speaking about Cuevas and La Marisoul, Ronstadt told Ultimate Classic Rock, “They’re both wonderful singers. Aida has been around for a long time; she’s kind of the classic ranchera singer. Now she’s kind of the queen of the female ranchera singers, so for her to even know that I exist is completely impressive.”
She added, “Marisol is just one of my number-one favorite modern singers. She’s just terrific. I love the way she sings. She can sing everything — she can sing rock ‘n’ roll, she can sing Mexican music. And she can look really good doing it. I love the way she dresses.”
