El Orgullo Que Me Brota


Mi musica, mi cultura, y mi gente son mi corazon...... no me canso de decirlo.....

I can hardly stand still when I listen to songs by Ram Herrera con su cumbia salsera, David Marez con una voz de oro, Little Joe con Las Nubes, Pajarillo Baranqueno y Mi Ultima Carta, David Lee?s Azukar with a touch of Conjunto Bernal, and the potent Shelly Lares..... with one of her catchiest tunes.... Mil Besos, all touch my heart profoundly. Makes me so damn proud of nuestra gente, and their remarkable talent..........

Sentando un tiempo bailable with solid drums, a concurrent bass, unos pitos fuertes, a jazzy style guitar, bring tones that move the soul and expel a positively stimulating sense of pride......... and breaks one free from inhibition and to firmly express one?s love for one?s culture......

Ten feet tall and bullet proof, sparks of gritos fill the room y El Chicano is all primped and set to begin una noche inolvidable de fiesta y diversion...

Dancing to polkas, rancheras, huapangos, cumbias, boleros, chotises, redobas and old soul classics; the dance floor will fill with sharp looking ladies and Catrin style men. Moving side to side, twirling the ladies, the gala is a sight to see. Dancing with expertise and eye catching finesse the ballroom will be filled with oohs, and ahhs.......

Un baile distinto con muchos amigos, musica buena, and just a tad bit of liquid courage mixed with a twist of a favorite beverage all equal to a fabulous time........

?Si no ay pleito, no se puso bueno el chan?kle? as the saying used to say.... but as time has progressed todos mantienen respeto and the party becomes a magnificent success.

Los musicos singing, swaying side, play their hearts out and delight the people with their moving hits. Unos tocan otros avientan una voz alta, y unos bailan pero unidos todos son parte de lo que nos toca el corazon.........

Whether you?re in California, Chicago, Indiana, New Mexico, Arizona, Washington, Florida, Minnesota, Tejas, Iraq or Hawaii.... nuestro orgullo es el mismo! Todos tenemos la misma sangre y nacimos de la misma mata..... asi es que cuando alguen te pregunte..... di les con orgullo.....

Soy El Chicano - Mi corazon es muy grande y mi cultura muy fuerte - Dignidad y respeto mantenere hasta la muerte!
