By Francisco H. Ciriza

The Latin outfit heavy on groove and soul represent a growing number of groups clinging to their Latino roots and influences while still producing a sound inclined to be more accessible to mainstream music fans. Their first single, Karma, from the self-titled debut album on Curb Records is a rich mix of seventies Chicano groove and hip adult alternative with elaborate percussion and bilingual lyrics.

Ortiz Still Passionate About Soccer
By John Philip Wyllie
Despite playing only one year of high school soccer, former Southwest High School soccer star, Rene Ortiz, produced enough goals in 1987 to become the Metro League’s seventh All-Time leading scorer.
