Thanks for getting in touch with us and letting us know about your grandmother. I glad you were able to find this recording in our collection. She has a beautiful voice.
I see this record was released locally in Los Angeles and produced by Enrique Elizondo, an active and well-known producer for decades. I wonder if your grandmother had any other recordings. This is the only single in our archives.
Hope to speak to you soon.

I love that you have this song! Ofelia Bitar is my grandmother. She is 85 years old. She still plays her guitar and sings any chance she gets. I am sure she would love to be in contact with you regarding her other recordings.
Please reach out if you would be interested :) Thank you in advance!
