LA MAFIA 2016
After three decades, 38 albums and over 12 million copies sold, La Mafia is back with their new single "Que No Quede Huella / Como Me Duele Amor" Oscar de la Rosa and Armando Lichtenberger Jr., leaders of the Mafia, started promoting their new single "Que No Quede Huella / Como Me Duele Amor", with the participation of guest artist Bronco.
La Mafia’s returning to the studio could not be more spectacular than with this new single, which is an innovative project titled “Unicos” which has as a special guest Bronco. "Que No Quede Huella" is their most representative theme and one of the biggest successes of the Monterrey based group, but this time performed by La Mafia, in their unique style, while the hit "Como Me Duele Amor", one of La Mafia’s biggest hits now interpreted by Bronco, but in their own unique way. Definitely a great idea by La Mafia lead vocalist Oscar De La Rosa who’s idea gives a fresh take on two classics.
Oscar “when Armando and I talked about our beginnings where in different places and cities La Mafia and Bronco had our separate presentations, both always breaking box office records I admired songs by Lupe Esparza, leader of Bronco, and I always liked “Que No Quede Huella" and that's right where my idea of us playing their song in La Mafia "UNICOS" (Unique) style and inviting Bronco to play one of their favorite La Mafia songs in their "UNICOS" (Unique) style. We talked to our Management agency Prime Time Entertainment, and they helped organize this new concept asking Lupe if he was interested and he loved the concept and decided to record La Mafia’s “Como Me Duele Amor”.
La Mafia has just released a new single "Alejate" with a music video shot on the Texas beaches. The song and video have a classic meloncoly feel.
Armando : “We’ve returned to touring Mexico, Mexico gave us awesome album sales and a lot of recognitions and we have always loved and respected our fans there and after a few years of fulfilling personal projects we are back touring Mexico with a new energy, new musical projects and concert presentations.
