It’s hard to believe that the Mexican American Legislative Caucus is turning 40 this year, and the folks at MALC have decided to celebrate in grand (or grande) fashion at the Texas Capitol on May 15th with the legendary Ramon Ayala y Los Bravos Del Norte.
Ramon Ayala, himself, is celebrating half-a-century as a musical artist having taken his music beyond borders for much of that time. The former founder of Los Relampagos Del Norte, along with the late Cornelio Reyna, has recorded over 100 albums, won four Grammy awards among other awards, and millions of records sold. Ayala has also been vocal in various causes, including his participation in an homage to Civil Rights Champion Cesar Chavez (video below).
Known for playing before thousands of fans at a time, I’m quite impressed that MALC is willing to take on such a feat as a free concert featuring Ayala. More than likely, it will put to shame any march or protest ever put on at the Capitol, so, I’d suggest taking advantage of the situation, too.
Congrats to MALC on 40 great years. Make sure you RSVP for this event here.
