Los Enmascarados has released an updated version of their cumbia “Los Ojos de Rubi.” Originally released on one of the Kingsville, Texas-based band’s earliest albums, the cumbia is another original from bandleader and accordionist JD.
“The updated version reflects how, over 20 years, the band has become even more polished in their sound, tighter in their rhythm section and stronger in their harmonies (which are some of the best around), but will always have their trademark energy and creative, unique, humorous, lyrics,” said a press release from their record label Rancho Alegre Records.
Los Enmascarados has been on a tear through Texas lately, with festival appearances in San Antonio and gigs throughout the Valley. They are scheduled to perform at the Rancho Alegre Conjunto Music Festival on May 5th at the world-famous Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater in downtown Austin.
This single is available for sale and streaming on all digital platforms and will be released on the band’s next album later this year.
