Al Cruzar la Calle means ‘across the street’ in Spanish. This is a lovely band from Maracaibo, Venezuela. The melancholy voice of Linda, and her sweet guitar with keyboards, and the occasional intervention of bongos from Heberto, are the perfect combination to dance or smile of sadness on a crayon-coloured afternoon.
