La Edad de la Violencia — “the age of violence” — is a pretty dire name for an album of upbeat synth-pop. Tijuana-born singer Ceci Bastida says that’s the point: She was pregnant when she began writing her latest set of songs, and found her joy tempered with concern about raising a child in a violent world. Bastida spoke about the origins of the album with NPR’s Arun Rath; hear their conversation at the audio link.
