On today's very special episode of Songmess we are joined by Richard's long time friend Tania [Tanisch] Miranda as we hop into the way back machine with a playlist of señora jams. "What is a señora jam?" you might be asking. Well, it's a rite of passage in every Latinx household for the weekends to be filled with classic songs from our parents' formative years. Defined by deeply emotional subject matters like unrequited love, infidelity and self-empowerment, - which often speak to the heartbreak that our family matriarchs (though not exclusively) have weathered throughout their lives, - these profoundly relatable anthems made stars and icons out some of the Spanish-speaking world's most beloved singers. These songs produce bittersweet nostalgia to this day because we associate them with the household chores we dreaded as children, and yet we can look back on them fondly as adults reminiscing on simpler times. A señora at heart, Tanisch's credentials were immediately vetted by the numerous drunken cantina singalongs we've shared. She is no stranger to the music business either, having worked for Nylon and developing partnerships between indie artists and brands like Vans and Nike. Tanisch is also an experienced road manager, working with Vyctoria, Vaya Futuro and Camille Mandoki, and was one of the key players in organizing our Bushwick de los Muertos showcase (episode 22) nearly 2 years ago. This episode is all about the surprise factor so we are skipping our usual artist listing. You'll just have to press play and relive the house cleaning vibes with us.
