Rita Vidaurri Keeps Setting Goals

Rita Vidaurri may be 87-years-old, but that does not stop his still incredibly beautiful living legend from slowing down and setting new goals.

“My next project is to record another compact disc,” Vidaurri said during an interview at her Northwest side home.

Vidaurri was the Alamo City’s ambassador to Mexico three decades before the birth of la Onda Chicana and what is now known as Tejano music. Her accomplishments are countless, yet today’s generation is not aware of her achievements.

When you see the full page of color photos that accompany this article, those that didn’t go on the most recent cruise organized by Jacob and Marta Dominguez, will see what they missed out on.

Thus this article could have easily been titled “Mira lo que te perdiste” because as some Tejano musicians say, “So many women and so little time.” In this case there were so many beaches (not bitches), shops, flea market bargains and so much diversity in food, there was not enough time to see, buy, eat or do it all. However, there will be a Tejano Cruise #4.
