Not Bad For a Gringa
Carmen Milagro Music
Not Bad for a Gringa was ordained because the majority of this album, was produced in San Salvador, Central America. When visiting, Carmen Milagro, a San Francisco native, is the "gringa" in the family. The album is a journey, not only a recollection of songs from her childhood but a foray into her future as an internationally recognized artist. Amelia (an original song based on the life story of a neglected & forgotten little girl known to Milagro) is track #5 and was produced by Myron Dove formerly of Santana. In Not Bad for a Gringa, Milagro has combined a variety of influences, original as well as cover songs in a blend of various shades of Latin music to form an eclectic, versatile taste of the old boleros of yesteryear, some modern beats, a slight twist on the Latin pop grooves and a dash of good old-fashioned rock but with a Spanish flair.
