"The debut release from Tita Luisa, “What is Love” jumps with excitement from the Latin rhythms of “Slave To Love”, and seamlessly carries through to a duet on the title track that made me want to bring flowers to my sweetie on the way home. It’s the type of music you want to hear while having a margarita or dinner on the patio. With jazz and folk influences, Tita Luisa calls out to dreams, places and times where she has asked the questions and found her answers. I think it’s very cool that part of the CD sales goes towards helping children in need around the world."
