This is the first song since the band since the passing of bandleader Alfredo Antonio Guerrero‘s daughter and granddaughter in a tragic car accident in 2020.
“When my daughter and granddaughter passed a year ago I fell into a very dark place and didn’t think I was going to continue music,” said Guerrero. “The pain was unbearable. I have now, through the grace of God and some spiritual help, have accepted my tragic loss and am now embracing my daughter and granddaughters beautiful memories. This is my first single release since their passing. Music is healing and my brother Gabriel Zavala brought me some healing on this song “
Guerrero has taken leadership of the legendary band after his father, Tony “Ham” Guerrero, passed away in January 2011, developing his own legacy with urban fusion while keeping the classic Chicano sound that Tortilla Factory fans have come to love.
Guerrero added, “My father Tony ‘Ham’ Guerrero always said ‘Mijo, Charro, Gallardo, myself and Coyote have already created a sound La Raza loves. I want you to create your own sound’. He always said you need to work with Zavala. So when I contacted Zavala I was like bro we need to create a song keeping the Classic Onda/Chicano sound with an Urban modern sound and man did my boy deliver.”
“We had a blast during it’s creation,” said Zavala “There are some heavy hitters on this track including a horn section that was recorded in Los Angeles as well as Tejano drummer extraordinaire, Aaron Holler! Of course, the cherry on top is featured on lead vocals! Lia G did an outstanding job conveying tons of emotion and brought the lyrics to life like only she can.”
“Enseñame” from Tortilla Factory featuring Lia G is available to stream or download at all digital music platforms.
