Remedio, featuring Destiny and Rigo Navaira, and Raulito Naviara were not able to perform a full set on Friday night due to the thunderstorm and wet stage; however, they were not going to let the weather win this battle.
“With so many Tejanos visiting from out of town, I couldn’t fathom the thought of not being able to share our music with the people who continue to support our dream,” said Destiny Naviara.
While many new artists continue to step on the scene, it is important to Remedio that fans do not forget what a voice and meaningful lyrics feel like.
“I truly believe I was meant to do this,” said Destiny. “It is very cliché and maybe said too much but I feel like Selena Quintanilla-Perez is inside of me when I perform. Sometimes I look back at performances and think ‘how did I do that?’”
Their debut album Siempre Cantando creates a sound that may strike a chord with long time Tejano fans while also creating a fresh take on the genre. Remedio may be a newer name to the industry but they are not backing down until the community understands why they do what they do.
“It’s not just about the fame and the glory,” Destiny said. “We do what we do because fans of our genre want and deserve to hear music with meaning and feeling behind it.”
The Navaira name is one that will always be a household name. Both Raulito and Emilio Navaira have assisted in the growth and talent of Remedio but it is safe to say that Destiny and Rigo Navaira are capable of owning their own stage and demanding a crowd.
“I love singing on stage with my dad and my sister,” said Rigoo Navaira. “Our new album is a hit and in the words of one of my influences, I truly feel like ‘We got Gold!’.”
