Just before members of my group Nieuwe Helden came to Texas in May 2009 we recorded some tejano and latin songs in our home studio. Recently drum tracks were added to finish the project. The CD ¡Manos Arriba! is dedicated to Texas and will be available at CDbaby.com.
Ru-Gil is a polka recorded by Los Dos Gilbertos, Como Fue is a famous Cuban bolero, Chicana Preciosa is on the Esteban Jordan CD The Return of El Parche and we found Magia de Amor by Freddy Fender on YouTube. Hope you like it!
