Ana Karla’s band Momo has more views on YouTube than the population of Tijuana. But let’s not let that define Ana Karla. She spends most of her time surrounding herself with everything she loves, most notably food, music, performing, and her two babies Coco and Heavy (a Pomeranian and a Chihuahua). She’s a trained chef, but she reserves her one of a kind meals for her own kitchen when she’s not performing live classical jazz and blues music with her pianist friends at her favorite local watering hole. While creating Momo’s second album (a self proclaimed departure from any previous releases) is her priority, she daydreams about “being able to spend a lot of time in my future huge garden with my boyfriend and my 20 adopted dogs and only go out for performing at my shows with Momo.” From the looks on Coco and Heavy’s little faces, spending a day with their writer, composer, producer, performer, mama, is a walk in the park, to say the least.
