New music means an updated playlist. Here are the newest tunes on my radar.
Destiny Navaira – Vacia – Destiny Navaira and her brother Rigo continue the Navaira legacy with some high-quality music. She has some amazing musicians on this new cumbia track, including her brother Rigo on Bass, Lalo Morales on Acordeon, guest bajista, Aaron El Pantera Martinez, and guest vocalist Myrza Maldonado. It’s sure to get some airplay in the US and Mexico. I’ve always liked Destiny’s voice and performance chops, but she leaves little doubt as to how much work she has put into perfecting her craft.
Dwayne Verheyden y Los Holandeses Norteños- Los Laureles – Dwayne is that acordeon phenom from The Netherlands. He spends half his time at home and the other half in Mexico (and a few trips into the US) while touring and making a name for himself. While he’s put out a few hit albums, it’s his home recordings that put him on the map and this old classic, Los Laureles, is performed perfectly.
Los Monarcas – Te Quedaste Adentro – Local conjunto royalty, Los Monarcas, is at the top of their game. They put on one of the strongest live shows, musically. So, when I saw that a new tune was added to YouTube, I immediately gravitated to it. I first heard this song by Fandango (USA) in the 80s, so it was a real treat for me. Check it out.
