IMG_3632
Today marks the first time Selena Quintanilla Pérez has been more famous in death than when she was alive. The Queen of Tejano was a few weeks shy of 24 years old when she passed on March 31, 1995. Since then her legacy has inspired the biopic of the same name which launched the career of Jennifer López.

EMI Latin, the record company that was founded after Jose Behar discovered Selena at the Tejano Music Awards came to develop the careers of Daddy Yankee, J Balvi, Thalia, and a host of other talented artists.

Today her legacy is stronger than ever. In honor the the brilliant person that she was, Son de Rey has payed tribute with their live, acoustic version of “No Me Queda Más” which was filmed and produced by Eric Vera at Short Hair Company in Austin, Texas.

Son de Rey will also be hosting their annual Selena Tribute Show at Sahara Lounge on April 13. This concert was recently featured at one of the top five Selena Birthday events to attend in Austin by Austin360.

Watch the stunning tribute to the late Tejano Music star below.

CINCO DE MAYO

PaulaMayaAlbumCoverAmerican-Statesman/Austin360 writer Nancy Flores recently had the following observations about two new local releases timed around Cinco de Mayo:

Paula Maya, “Illuminar” (Yellow House). Among the musicians helping boost the visibility of Brazilian artists locally is singer-songwriter and keyboardist Paula Maya. In her sixth studio album, “Iluminar,” she takes a departure from previous pop, electronica and rock-influenced albums and digs deeper into her Brazilian roots. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Maya features mostly Portuguese songs on her latest record, including everything from traditional bossa nova to a reggae-inspired pop tune. Release show May 7 at One-2-One Bar.

Son de Rey, “Ojos Azules.” Son de Rey’s upbeat electro-pop and Latin rhythm blends get the hips shaking and the pachanga started. Wanna hear a cumbia ­Spanglish version of Wham’s “Careless Whisper?” Who doesn’t? Son de Rey’s playful and masterfully executed version will put a smile on any ’80s music…
