In an update, they have now officially released their newest single, “Diganle”. It is an original 1991 hit from Johnny Hernandez released on his No Me Hagan Menos album on EMI Latin. This revamped version with Barrera is adds a new perspective to an old classic.
“Johnny wanted to do it with Chente,” Xavier Chavarilla, executive producer of the song told Tejano Nation. “We want to do it very different. We want to take away the ‘Familia’ sound, and let Chente put his own flavor into this classic.”
“Once me and Johnny got to talking and he told me he wanted me to make it my own, then we really got the wheels turning,” added Barerra.
Hernandez was part of the Chicano music movement with the Latinaires and Little Joe Y La Familia and author of “The Cotton Picker – An Odyssey”, a book that chronicles his life from the fields of Texas to performing at major venues across the country.
Barrera is a Grammy-winning singer and musician, who has spent over two decades in Tejano music and just released a live concert album 20 Años En Vivo.
