CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

De la O describes the kind of music that she heard while growing-up in East Harlem/El Barrio. She enumerates trio music, Boleros, Guarachas and some Mexican music as the most common formats. She also talks about the tradition of castrating singers so they would maintain a specific voice tone. She finishes the session by stating that as a woman “you cannot have it all” because balancing a professional career and a family entails sacrificing something.
