ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
La música combina el “swing,” de la música fronteriza conocida como “Tex-Mex,” dándole un acento californiano que incorpora aspectos del “Rock,” “Regea,” música “Afro-Cubana,” y Nueva Canción Lartinoamericano, por lo tanto transformada en “Cal-Mex.” Manteniendo el golpe rítmico de la polka fronteriza con el brinco juguetón que caracteriza las fusiones musicales de la Bahía de San Francisco.
Francisco es un Trabajador Cultural, un organizador que ha dedicado su vida al servicio a su comunidad. Su música es una forma de arte público cantado en iglesias, plazas, escuelas, huelgas, reuniones (mitins); y en todo lugar sus canciones inspiran y nutren la esperanza. Su voz encierra la esencia del alma chicana, que mezcla el calor inspiracional del “rhythm & blues – afro-americano” con la ternura campechana de los cantantes románticos rancheros de México.
Greg Landau – agosto 2009
San Francisco, CA.

The music combines the swing of the border music called Tex-Mex with a very “Californiano” approach that brings in elements of rock music, reggae, Afro-Cuban and the Latin American Nueva Canción, thus the evolution of “Cal-Mex.” You can feel the thump of the border polka with a very different swing to it that playful bounce that marks the San Francisco Bay Area’s characteristic musical fusion.

Francisco Herrera is a cultural worker, a community organizer who has devoted his life to service to his community. His music is a form of public art, sung in churches, plazas, schools, picket lines, meetings and everywhere his songs will provide inspiration and hope. His unique voice captures the essence of “Chicano soul” that blends the soulful inspiration of rhythm and blues with the earthy ranchero crooners of Mexico.
Greg Landau – August 2009 San Francisco, CA

This album is amazing. It is clearly a work of both art and love. Every song touches the heart and raises consciousness about the plight of immigrants in the USA. This music heals the soul. It should be in everyone's music collection.
