It’s never too late to make more Christmas music right? At least that’s how La 45 feels.
In late November, the band planned to release just two songs for the holiday season. While in the studio working on the tracks, La 45 felt a sense of calming joy and lifted spirits.
“It felt so good that we decided to do another, then another, then another,” sais Mike Torres III, co-founder and member of La 45. “Before we knew it, the original two song turned into a full eight song album of Christmas joy!
The album titled Chicano Christmas features holiday classics and an original song, “Ya Viene El Norte,” all done al estilo de La 45, the group known as the Next Generation of Chicano music.
In a year full of uncertainty, fear, loneliness, isolation and lots of stress. Music has the power to combat all of the negativity that has invaded our lives throughout 2020 and there is nothing more uplifting then Christmas music.
“We hope these songs find their way onto your holiday playlists and help bring some much needed joy into all of our lives,” said Torres. “From our family to yours, we ask the good Lord to bless you and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
