is 'Border Americana,' Shocked's unique tribute to both her Latin
and Texas roots. Grounded in the blues tradition
that infuses all of her work, it squares off with the influences
of her adapted home, Los Angeles. 'You know more Spanish than you
think you do,' is how she accounts for the showdown between the Texas
blues on one side and the 'Spanglish' stories she weaves on the other.
