At the Gypsy Parlor, in the heart of the Grant Street and Forest Street area of the West Side of Buffalo, Saranaide unveiled her new single and video to enthusiastic friends, family, and fans. The single, La Vida Que Me Da, originated from the Raices Theater Company’s outstanding production of Desde El Puente, which consisted of 9 short vignettes.
The single and video is an original composition for Saranaide, the performance name Sara Rodriguez uses. The single consists of her own lyrics and music with musical composition assistance from Kevin Doyle. The engaging video production, shot on location at The Tabernacle, was led by Omeri Monroe of TuneWorks Media.
