Maja Rios: How did you get started as a vocalist and songwriter?
I would listen to all styles. My style grew to blend them all together. I had no formal training, but began composing and singing by ear.
I wrote songs using only a few chords on piano, which I would change the order around to write different songs. I learned by trial and error.
It was already a term used by Joe Cuba and Ray Baretto. We had no good distribution for our music.
Later on the Aftyn Rose caught on with Chicanos Mexicans in the Los Angeles area, where it still is popular today. MR: Do you have a favorite song you have written?

MR: That was the first song I heard by you. The history of music is not embraced today. MR: Is the music Latin Soul marginalized you think? I think it still is.
MR: Who are your favorite contemporary artists? JB: Bruno Mars. I love Bruno.
