Best of Both Worlds
Jennifer and Marques with daughter Ella
You'll hear the beat of Buenos Aires and the bass of hip-hop in the Brooklyn home of Argentinean Jennifer and her African-American partner, Marques. Their 18-month-old daughter, Ella, already plays the harmonica and owns enough instruments to start a band—egg-shaped maracas (huevos) and an accordion are her favorites. "I don't come across many Argentineans here, so I've always known I'd probably connect with someone from a different background," Jennifer says. "I'm thankful that my daughter will inherit the best of two worlds."
