Oscar de la Rosa and the band have been around for over 30 years. Dubbed, “the pride of the Northside,” La Mafia was one of the first Tejano bands to break into Mexico and the rest of the Americas. Recently, they have continued a busy touring schedule across the U.S.
Personal story: The first time I caught La Mafia was around 1983 at the Crystal Ballroom in Crystal City–I was 12. The opening band was fronted by a talented 12-year old vocalist named Selena Quintanilla.
Fans may pre-order the new music on iTunes starting on May 5.
