The medley features two songs originally recorded by La Sombra, “Regresa” and “Pensando En Ti.”
“I was 8 years old when I saw La Sombra perform live in Chicago, Illinois,” La Peligrosa told Tejano Nation. “This was the first concert I had ever seen. My grandfather purchased the record for me that day. Their energetic performance left a lasting impression. In retrospect, it set the tone for my love and passion for Tejano music.”
The idea for the recording arose when La Peligrosa was making a mix of songs for her radio show.
“I shared the idea with my producer Rolando Revilla,” she said. “Rolando brought the idea to life and added the Midwest flare! It’s one of my favorite recordings to date. It is my hope that Tejano Music lovers will love it too!”
The track is included on the singer’s debut album Hoy, released in December 2015. The album earned La Peligrosa a Tejano Music Award nomination for Best New Female Artist in 2016.
Originally from Chicago and also known as The Windy City Boys, La Sombra has released over twenty full-length studio albums featuring songs in both Spanish and English since 1984. The band has been credited with influencing the Tejano and cumbia music industry with their musical style, dress, and concert performances, as well as inspiring a generation of newer artists including the Kumbia Kings.
