This CD/DVD is like an anthology of the first 25 years of La Mafia’s carreer, with songs going way back to the early 80s and songs from the 90s albums that propelled La Mafia (and Tejano Music) into the national and international spotlight , and appropiately includes a few songs from “Para El Pueblo” for which they won the Latin Grammy in the same year they celebrated their 25th anniversary and were inducted into the Houston Hall of Fame. The album also contains two brand new songs “Quiero Amanecer Contigo” and “Mandame Un E-Mail.” The only way that all of these songs could be recorded on the same label, was to completely rerecord them with great care to remain true to the original sound. Due to the fact that the original recorded tracks were recorded on various labels who own the catalogs to them.

LA MAFIA REGROUPS AND RELEASES NEW ALBUM ON ITS OWN TERMS

LA MAFIA is going Back To The Future in more Ways Than One.

The Houston-based group recently released its first album on its own independent label, Urbana Records. Para El Pueblo is filled with the tender ballads and lilting pop-cumbias that exemplify the band’s sound. It’s all anchored by de la Rosa’s heartfelt vocal style. A notable difference, however, is instrumentation. After giving in to the popular, accordion-laced norteño sound La Mafia is back to keyboard-based songs and arrangements.

“Any of these (new) songs, we can inject into our set, and they’re going to fit right in and keep the energy,” says Lichtenberger, relaxing in the control room of Urbana’s recording studios. “The album just feels fresh to us. It’s so hard to come up with something unique. You’ve got to take pride in what you’ve done, and that’s what we did, I think, on this album. That’s our style. That’s La Mafia.”

Para El Pueblo is hardly a paint-by-numbers nostalgia piece. The album features some surprises (three karaoke tracks) and proves a showcase for new songwriters, including Felipe de Jesús Jr. (who penned the Pesado hit “Ojalá Que Te Mueras”) and Oscar Ivan Treviño, lead singer and songwriter for norteño supergroup Duelo. Ex-Kumbia Kings member Chris Dominguez also pops up, most notably as co-producer on a remix of the album’s title track, featuring local rapper Juan Gotti. Dominguez and Lichtenberger have formed Urbano Dos, a production team dedicated to a more urban, hip-hop-flavored sound.

It’s just a small part of the freedom that comes with an independent label. “We’re in artistic control,” Lichtenberger says. “Our album is coming out with national distribution. We’re going to give it a true national shot, but independently. I feel that here – in our stomping grounds in the central U.S. – we can compete.” The group plans to do promotional rounds in Miami and Mexico, where the album drops this month. The first single, “Tienes Razón”, received substantial play on local stations, and a new single, “Sufriendo El Corazón”, is ready at the gate.

“We’ve always wanted to do this,” de la Rosa says about starting a label. “We had been talking about it for a long time already. We’ve always wanted to own our own music, be our own masters. Most of the time, the record companies own everything.” La Mafia learned that lesson the hard way after it was unable to renegotiate its contract with Fonovisa Records and the label shelved the yet-unreleased Nube Pasajera when the group left in 2002. Fast-forward to October 2004, when Fonovisa decided to release Nube Pasajera – without additional input or approval from La Mafia.

Lichtenberger maintains that Nube Pasajera is a good album, but it isn’t the band’s priority. “We’re going to be behind the Para El Pueblo album,” de la Rosa says. “It might confuse people, because they might go to the store and pick up the wrong one.” Fans will have plenty of time to sort things out. The group plans a long run for Pueblo, capped off by a series of events next year to celebrate 25 years of making music. De la Rosa considers it all part of the journey to get back to where the band started from. “I’m real excited – the whole band’s excited,” de la Rosa says. We’re slowly becoming the group that has always been La Mafia.”

LA MAFIA REGROUPS

Houston’s Premier Tejano band returns with Tejano-pop album ‘Contigo’

Rumors of the demise of Houston’s premier Tejano band last year were greatly exaggerated. This week’s release of La Mafia’s latest album of Latin-influenced pop, “Contigo,” is proof. Point fingers or say the split was heard on good authority from the band, La Mafia’s members swear they never uttered the word “breakup” at any time over the last two years. “What we announced was that we were taking a break for an undetermined amount of time,” says keyboardist and producer Armando Lichtenberger Jr.

However terminal the condition once was, it now appears La Mafia is on the road to recovery. Gathering in the band’s northside studio in the shadow of the Houston skyline, the members of La Mafia are rehearsing tracks from “Contigo.” The members start and stop their way through the new songs in preparation for an upcoming tour.The two they’re practicing, “Sabor A La Fiesta” and “Cuando Tu Me Beses” are representative of the new album, which is more pop-oriented than previous albums. “Sabor A La Fiesta” has a big electric guitar introduction that settles into a soft island beat. It’s broken by the heavily synthesized balladry of “Cuando Tu Me Besas”. The old accordion-driven cumbia sound is still represented on “No Puedo Controlarte” and “Morir Soñando” but is sparser than on previous La Mafia albums.

Symbolic of the direction La Mafia may be taking is “Contigo’s” cover art. Ditching the gaucho wardrobe of the past, the band is pretty and primped in matching black sweaters. Surrounded by gold and platinum albums from throughout the band’s 20-year career, members are once again excited about the prospects of adding to their 5 million albums sold worldwide. Talk of breaking up is now laughed at. Mentions of past pronouncements of that sort are waved off as words of frustration. La Mafia, they now say, never had any intention of parting ways. They were merely downsizing. “It was the press and everyone else that said we were breaking up,” says keyboardist/backing vocalist David de la Garza. “We just needed time away.”

The problem for La Mafia was never the music. They have always loved the conjuntos and cumbias that helped them revive the norteño sound while adding modern pop elements to traditional Tejano. What the band needed time away from was La Mafia Inc. Following a Grammy for the 1996 release “Un Millon de Rosas,” album sales started to wane. Band members believed this was a result of a lack of support by its record label, Sony Discos, which they felt didn’t know how or where to market them. “In Latin music (the common theory is) you have to be in Miami to make it,” Lichtenberger says. “We weren’t, so we didn’t get supported.” Sony Discos recently merged its Tejano division with its Regional Mexican division, and many of the employees who worked with Tejano bands have been removed or replaced.

La Mafia’s biggest problem might have been its success; it got too big. Complete with entourage, vehicles and ever-expanding overhead; at one point La Mafia – the business – owned a tour bus and two 18-wheelers to haul equipment and had a staff of 30. This was in addition to Houston Sound Studio, the rehearsal and recording space owned by the band. La Mafia – the band – stayed on the road 11 months of the year, sometimes playing four days a week or more, just to keep up. “We became a corporation, and we were working for the company instead of being musicians,” Lichtenberger says. “We couldn’t take a break, so we needed to dissolve it.” The trucks and the bus are gone now. When the band needs to travel, it will rent vehicles. Also streamlined was the payroll. Excluding the band, La Mafia’s staff now consists of eight employees who assist the band on the road and keep the studio running.

The group signed a three-record deal with Fonovisa. Several different mixes of some songs have been recorded, slowing some down and revving others up, in an attempt to make them more appealing to different genres of radio. Lichtenberger says. “Our goal isn’t to match what we’ve done in the past. What’s important is that everything feels new right now.” With a new album, new record label, renewed band harmony, a young fresh image and tour plans, La Mafia feels like greater success is imminent.

Tejano Band La Mafia Starts New On Fonovisa Records

Billboard October 28, 2000

Armed with a new album, a new record label and, perhaps more important, a new sound, the Houston-based pop/Tejano band La Mafia, which retired briefly last year, is back on the scene. “We went in one direction on this new album,” says keyboardist/producer Armando Lichtenberger Jr. “We sort of combined all the pop sounds we have done before. Now, we are just unifying it [the sound] into one record. In the past, our albums have always had a few balladas, a few norteño songs, cumbias, just a mix of stuff,” says Lictenberger. “On this album we worked hard to get a more cohesive sound.”

La Mafia’s new album, “Contigo,” hits retail Tuesday (24) on Fonovisa Records, which signed the band last summer after coaxing them out of retirement. La Mafia has been with Sony Discos since the late ‘80s. The title track, Contigo a midtempo pop ballad supplemented with congas and acoustic guitar picking, was released as a single Sept. 16. A central part of that new sound are the guitar-fueled uptempo songs “Nuevo Amanecer,” “Morrir Soñando,” and “Sabor A La Fiesta.” “Those are a few of the tracks we’re proud of,” Lichtenberger says. “Nuevo Amanecer” is a pop ballad and “Morir Soñando” a tropical/cumbia. This the first time we’ve used the guitar as the leads on these, so I guess you could call them rock/cumbias.” Lichtenberger served as producer for the new album as he has for most of the band’s history.

Lead singer Oscar De La Rosa says a new team at Fonovisa has him excited again. “When we were at Sony before we left, things were just not the same,” he says. “They would say things [about promotions], but I could tell they just were not excited. In other words, we were not a priority to them.” De La Rosa says that the band’s last tour in Mexico, in mid-1998, was the most disappointing. “ We found out our album wasn’t even in the stores, and we felt we were wasting our time.”

In December 1998, La Mafia stunned the music industry when it announced it was retiring. Through the band’s 20-year history, it had sold a ton of records, influenced numerous artists, and earned two Grammys. But the wear and tear of the touring road, plus what De La Rosa called the “lack of any real support” from its record label, convinced the group to throw in the towel. “I just got tired of doing the same thing. All the touring, always away from home,” De La Rosa says “You start doing things because you have to, not because you want to. I want to enjoy myself when I’m performing, and it had gotten to a point where it was like work.”

The group announced it would play the few remaining concert dates in 1999 and break up at the end of that year. According to De La Rosa, the band was approached by several record labels. None of them were convincing, he says, until they spoke with Fonovisa. “Working with this new label, Fonovisa, has been great,” he says. “When they asked us to meet with them, I was impressed. They had everyone there, all the promoters, all the sales staff, the regional directors. It was really something we had not expected. We could tell that they were very serious.” Fonovisa GM Gilberto Moreno says the label was equally impressed with La Mafia’s recording career. “We consider La Mafia to still be one of the most important bands in regional Mexican music,” Moreno says. “I think their music can appeal to many different markets, from the Latin pop and contemporary [radio] stations to Tejano and regional Mexican stations.”

According to Lichtenberger a formal organized tour support for the new album is being planned for early next year. “Right now, we’re on a promotional tour through the end of the year,” he says. As part of the band’s come back strategy, the personnel has been increased. The five-member band (Lichtenberger on keyboards, De La Rosa on vocals, David de la Garza on keyboards, Eutemio “Tim” Ruiz on bass, and Michael Aguilar on drums) has been augmented by two more guitarists, Eugene Barrientos and Marion Aquilina; two backup vocalists, Lili Arce and Pam Mendoza; and percussionist Brian Doria. “This puts us on a level with the international scene, we want to be able to play on any stage any type of entertainment. We felt we needed this kind of band to be that versatile,” he continues. “We have always recorded different styles of music, and we have also used different studio players throughout our career. We felt we needed to make [the band] complete, to be able to play what we have recorded in the past and what we recorded on this album.”

AS La Mafia’s Farewell After Nearly two decades of Making Music,

MOMENTOS is an expectedly confident and Solidly Produced Affair.

The Houston-based Tejano supergroup announced its separation last December, much to the surprise of fans and the Spanish-language music industry. Lead singer Oscar de la Rosa said he had grown weary of endless touring and performing, and he expressed disappointment with the way Sony Discos, La Mafia’s longtime label, handled the group’s promotion in Mexico.

Momentos showcases La Mafia’s unmistakable blend of traditional Tejano elements and slick pop sensibilities on lilting cumbias such as “Mi Amor Sin Ti,” “Dejen Me Seguir Asi” and “Grande Fantasia.” Equally effective are the more straightforward rancheras, including “Loco de Gusto” and “A Donde Puedo Ir.” Its fusion of old and new has incited criticism from some Tejano traditionalists, but La Mafia isn’t backing down.

“Soy Tan Feliz,” the album’s joyous first single, blends cumbia rhythms, rock-guitar riffs and tropical elements with de la Rosa’s confident vocals – all anchored by a catchy chorus. The album also features a bonus “Tejano” version of the song, with added accordion.

Aside from that attempt to appease radio programmers, “Momentos” is even more aggressive in its pop approach “Angels and Miracles” is a shuffling English track highlighted by wistful guitar licks and sweet instrumentation. “Dicen” and “Dejame Llorar” are heartbreaking ballads sure to incite plenty of swooning, thanks to de la Rosa’s plaintive delivery.

The title track is a musical farewell to fans it’s a bittersweet moment and a fitting goodbye for a group whose music still represents a refreshing break from the often-stifling world of Tejano music.

LA MAFIA CALLS IT QUITS!

Twice Grammy Award winners, La Mafia, has decided to call it quits after twenty years of performing. The group’s singer, Oscar De La Rosa said he actually had made up his mind almost five years ago when he had asked their previous management he wanted to do an album on his own. Oscar said that there was even plans on replacing him with a new vocalist after bringing that up. “I just wanted to see what I can do as an individual. Just to see what I could do.” When La Mafia decided to restructure the group, they also decided to replace the management because they felt management had lost their faith in the group. “Sometimes changes are better. You have to make changes. If you never make changes in your life, you’ll never know what you’ll be able to accomplish, or what you could have accomplished. And I don’t want to live on ‘I could of’, I want to live by ‘I’ll try it now’, and if it works for me, let least it was something I got a chance to try and if it doesn’t, fine.”, said Oscar. About two 2 years Oscar brought the group together and said since the contract is about to expire with Sony, now will be the time to try this.

“I left the road a year ago”, said keyboard/accordionist, Mando. “Because I have dedicated myself more to managing the group and personally couldn’t handle the wear and tear anymore. I would have ended up in the hospital, by producing, playing, managing and I knew I had to make a change.” Mando said Oscar called him about a year ago from Mexico and said, “This is it. Set up a meeting. I can’t do it at this pace anymore”. On December 2, 1998, La Mafia announced their retirement.

When asked by Roy Arellano of Tejanomusic.com, how they felt after receiving TTMA’s “Lifetime Achievement Award”, they responded with “very happy and honored”. “We finally got the recognition the group deserved”, said Oscar.

Their latest album “Momentos” that had just been released, contains every different style of mexican music: Norteño, Balada, and Cumbia, including an original Tejano style song. Oscar believes La Mafia has been the only group that has had a #1 hit in every style mentioned above. There’s even a “Balada Rock”, as described by Oscar, on the new CD called “Angels and Miracles”. Their new single off the “Momentos” CD is “Soy Tan Feliz”

La Mafia Ships Platinum with “Euforia”

New Album by Super-group Goes Platinum Prior to Release

Scheduled for official release on September 1st, the newest La Mafia studio effort has been certified platinum by Sony Discos executives. While in Miami for a “Midem Latin America & Caribbean 1998” showcase, members of La Mafia were presented with Platinum Record plaques by Sony Discos U.S. President Oscar Llord. Whosesale orders to retail outlets totaled more than 100,000 units, thus qualifying ‘Euforia’ for platinum status.

Held at the world famous South Beach Brasserie, the special Platinum presentation ceremony was attended by Jorge Pino, V.P./G.M. of Sony Latin, Rafael Cuevas, V.P./G.M. Sony Tropical and Ray Martinez, Vice President and General Manager for Sony Tejano. The presence of representatives from the various Sony divisions underscored the broad popularity of the two-time Grammy Award winning La Mafia.

According to Jorge Pino, chief executive in charge of Sony’s Latin pop division, ‘Euforia’ will get a major label push in Puerto Rico and the rest of Latin America. The album, says Oscar Llord, will play well in both Mexican Regional and internatioal pop formats.

Produced by Mando Lichtenberger Jr., the album was introduced with “Pido,” a lush bolero written by Jorge Luís Piloto, a long-time La Mafia collaborator. The single has drawn favorable comparisons to classic Mafia hits such as “Me Estoy Enamorando,” “Vida” and “Para Siempre Contigo.”

Ray Martinez, a Sony executive based in San Antonio, is committed to the project and has made the album a marketing and promotional priority. “We’re very impressed with this record,” said Martinez. “With Euforia, La Mafia continues to set new stylistic and innovative standards. We’re plan to give it all we’ve got.”

In support of the album, La Mafia will swing through La Vegas for a show at the Flamingo Hilton while kicking off a major three-month tour through Mexico.
