Once in a great while an exciting new album comes around to remind us why we love new music. Los Famosos Del Norte’s “La Leyenda de Emiliano Carranza” is one of those records, produced by platinum selling record producer Byron Brizuela and Enrique “Kike” Carbajal this norteño album made up of 10 songs, each narrating the story of Mexican “urban legen” Emiliano Carranza.
From his humble beginnings in Magadalena, Sonora, to his rize to power in one of the most infamous cartels each song describes our hero’s journey, expressing his emotions and the highlights of his legendary career. From his journey to the U.S. and his revealing boarder crossing to his triumphant return home.
This record is truly a norteño master piece, songs like “Quiero Ahogar Mis Penas” and “Los Angelitos Verdes” sing out to the soul of the immigrant, while “ El Mas Temido” and “Ya Llego por Quien Lloraban” celebrate the rawness and bravado of el narco corrido. “Hermosa Morenita” and “Quien Dijo Que Es Pecado” are two love songs that take romance and courtship to a whole new level. Enjoy the art of story telling as this group takes norteño back to it’s melodic roots. It’s a record that narrates a story in it’s songs.
