Blending pop, jazz, R&B and salsa, Tierra has produced hits including “Gonna Find Her,” “Memories” and “Zoot Suite Boogie” and continues touring and releasing albums.
Malo with special guest Jorge Santana
The legendary rock and roll group Malo, led by vocalist Arcelio Garcia, featured a full horn and percussion section and gained a loyal fan base with their many hits including “Nena,” “Pana” and “Oye Mama.” The band scored a Top 20 hit single in 1972 with “Suavecito,” which is now considered by many as “The Chicano National Anthem.”
The distinctive sound of El Chicano includes the Hammond organ and has garnered the band five gold records, including their first album “Viva Tirado,” a tribute to the Mexican bullfighter Jose Ramon Tirado. As their big crossover success, the album featured hits including the ballad “Sabor A Mi” and Latin infused covers of Cream’s “I Feel Free” and Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl.” In 1973, the band released the top 40 hit “Tell Her She’s Lovely.”
