La Mafia frontman Oscar De La Rosa is recovering from COVID-19 quarantined at home, the Grammy-winning group announced on Thursday (Aug. 12).
The announcement was made via social media. “We are communicating this message that Oscar De La Rosa is quarantined at home recovering from COVID-19. Thank God Oscar was vaccinated and isn’t as sick as he easily could have been.”
The message also shared a tip about getting vaccinated for COVID-19: “Please if you don’t have the vaccine and have access to get it, GET IT, it can possibly save your life.”
La Mafia is one of the most influential bands in Latin music with roots in Tejano and the group celebrated 40 years in the music industry in 2020. A 40th-anniversary celebration tour was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The band’s legacy can be traced back to 1980 when La Mafia was formed with Armando Lichtenberger Jr. at a cantina owned by De La Rosa’s father playing hardcore Tejano tunes.
In 1992, La Mafia became the first Tejano group with a platinum-selling album. Estas Tocando Fuego, the group’s sixteenth studio album, eventually received triple platinum certification.
The Houston, Texas-based group has earned two Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, including this past November for Best Tejano Album with Live In Mexico.
