Happy At Last: A Tribute To Leonard Cohen, Part II

This week, we're featuring video performances of various artists playing the songs of Leonard Cohen. The video was recorded live at this year's South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.

David Garza chose one of the best-known songs from one of Leonard Cohen's lesser-known albums: "Dance Me to the End Of Love," from the 1985 album Various Positions. Garza nails the Spanish and Portuguese influences in Cohen's music, though he may be coming to it as a Texas-based musician influenced by Mexican musicians.
