La Mafia Elevates Amor y Sexo With Elegance

After a long time without a studio album, the Pride of the Northside is back with the much anticipated Amor y Sexo. While the music is “pura Mafia” the playlist is a bit different.

As any Mafioso who grew up with them in the Tejano 80s, weathered their change to a more international sound in the 90s, and have enjoyed them bringing all of their sounds back into play in the 2000s, this new production was still a bit of a surprise.

Sure, there are three rancheras–more than usual; but only one cumbia. That’s right, four ballads, two valseadas and a jazzy dance tune round out a slightly different production, but one that keeps the Mafia sound intact.

“Seria Mas Facil” and “Una Cancion Para Olvidar” are strong horn-influenced and acordeon-infused rancheras. The latter has some powerful harmonies, too. The acordeon-heavy “Protegere Nuestros Recuerdos” is a short, but powerful ranchera about a loves end, but with some great memories stored away in case of a return.

“Quiero Amarte” is the sole cumbia with some pop influences that could make it a fan favorite when played live. It’s already one of my favorites.

Among the ballads, “Provocación” is my favorite with its rising chorus and piano-led melody. A surprise tune is the horn-driven jazzy dance tune, “Soy Facil”, which translated is “I’m Easy.” Great guitar solo in this one. “Todo Dama Lo Amerita” offers a mariachi- and trio-esque international ballad which fans will enjoy. The opener, “Me Mata”, and “Amor y Sexo” are reminiscent of the 90s power ballads that put La Mafia on the international map.

“No Me Abandones”, restyled from a ranchera on 1983s Mafia Mania, is the quintessential booze-it-up valseada to beg a lover not to leave. Its horn and acordeón arrangements are superb. “A Donde Va El Amor” is a similarly-styled vals driven by the bajo and acordeon.

Big kudos to Oscar de la Rosa for continuing to school some of the new talent out there on how to sustain a voice 30-plus years later. Mando Lichtenberger deserves a lot of credit as the producer and arranger, too. These guys just haven’t lost their touch.
