Joe Vic Reyna turned his time quarantined during the pandemic into a new cumbia titled “La Cuarentena” released on Jan. 30.
The singer and musician shared details on his new single with Tejano Nation. “Because of what we’re going through, someone needed to make a song about it, might as well let it be me right,” said Reyna. “It was me and my cousin actually, we were just here at the house not going out and all of a sudden I wanted to write a song,”
Reyna is currently a member of La Pura Sabrosura, the band for cumbia icon Fito Olivares, who Reyna says is a major influence in his music.
“He’s been my idol for all these years and my inspiration for my style of music comes from him,” said Reyna. “If you put his music next to my music, you definitely see the similarities.”
The saxophonist started his own group, Los Kumbacheros, in 2010. He released two albums, Cumbias Sin Fronteras in 2013 and El Kumbachero in 2015. His debut album earned Reyna a nomination for Best New Male Artist at the 33rd annual Tejano Music Awards in 2013.
“La Cuarentena” from Joe Vic Reyna Y Los Kumbacheros is available at all digital music outlets.
