Singer Alessandra Rosaldo and songwriter Chacho Gaytán have come a long way since Sentidos Opuestos’ self-titled 1993 debut. Off that auspicious first album were “Historias de Amor” and “Escribeme en el Cielo,” two chart-climbing tunes that set the tone for their career: reluctantly romantic and irresistibly danceable. Their biggest hit to date took shape in “Amor de Papel,” an electronic ballad to the fragile yet persistent nature of love, especially when courting a paper doll covered in tape. Last year saw the release of Zona Preferente, the duet’s first new album in more than a decade, ushered in by “Dime,” a return to basics with a triumphant hook and intricately entwined synth melodies.

House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture and thoroughly caffeinated phantoms.
