Singing It Like It Is

The bilingual hip-hop trio from East L.A. charts an inspiring path to navigating an unforgiving environment. With the second album of their career and a Latino urban vibe, LA SINFONIA‘«÷s new single ‘«£No Merezco Tu Perd??n (Idiota)‘«ō acknowledge that violence and tragedy are all around, but if you stick to the good people and honor your roots, you will always have a chance to come out ahead. It is a theme that runs through many of LA SINFON?žA‘«÷s songs, and they offer themselves as proof that dreams can really come true for a Latino in East L.A.

The first single at Latin radio, ‘«£No Merezco tu Perd??n (Idiota)‘«ō features Vane singing the chorus of renowned Mexican composer Joan Sebasti?Ūn‘«÷s 2000 smash ‘«£Idiota.‘«ō It is the first time the consummate Mexican singer-songwriter has granted permission for his work to be used in a hip-hop song.

While the original ‘«£Idiota‘«ō song is about a shattered romance, LA SINFON?žA has turned the verses into a re-examination of family ties, as the prodigal son finally acknowledges the sacrifices his father made to support his family.

LA SINFONIA brings to us the best of their self-created genre ‘«£Hurban‘«ō, a very energetic blend of Latin rhythms and hip-hop, with the unique bilingual singing and raping, and the exquisite touch of Vane‘«÷s voice. This East L.A. trio, with out a doubt, brings to us the new generation of hip-hop music.
