jeanette week - bonus

to end the week i will leave you with 2 songs from the band jeanette started out with. originally pic-nic started out influenced by american folk pop- you can clearly hear the mamas and papas vibe here:
PIC-NIC - SAN FRANCISCO BAY BLUES

but i prefer them more with this great sound where jeanette really shines:
PIC-NIC - OI TU VOZ
