The LG Tejano noms release day is always one in which I expect to see bands whose music I’ve never heard. This was not one of those days.
The nominees include a Mexico-based Tejano band, the niece of a legend (Emilio) who has taken control of her career to achieve success, a vocalist originally produced by Abraham Quintanilla who has grown up in the industry to become a powerful singer, a band of professional working musicians who work in various projects but come together for a new album, and the son of a Tejano music legend who is making his way to that status himself.
Some good music was nominated this year in the Tejano music category. I’m glad to see that two talented young women were nominated, too. Both of have taken the reins of their careers and have explored new directions to achieve their creations.
Here are some samples from the nominated albums.
El Plan – Despreciado.
Grupo Alamo – Camino Al Progreso
Isabel Marie – Una Ilusion
Destiny Navaira – Dime Como Se Siente
Bobby Pulido – Para Que Baile Mi Gente
