LA MAFIA NOMINATED FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE GRAMMY
& NOTED BY BILLBOARD MAGAZINE FOR 1996 CHART SUCCESS

Members of La Mafia – Houston’s most widely known musical export – were pleased to learn that they were the recipient of yet another Grammy nomination. The multi-platinum selling band has been nominated for the illustrious Grammy Award in each of the last three years. Once again, the group is recognized by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (N.A.R.A.S.) for musical excellence.

“We’re excited,” said lead singer Oscar de la Rosa. “It’s a big deal. But we try not to let it be a big part of our career. Win or lose, it won’t change that much. We’ve gotten through a lot of award shows and still continued to be the top-selling act in our market.”

Its previous nominations, neither of which won, were the 1994 album “Vida” in the Latin-Pop category and the live greatest-hits album “Exitos en Vivo” in the Regional Mexican-American category. This year the buzz is that La Mafia is favored as before, the band will attend the show, though de la Rosa bristles that members must pay their own way. “From what we understand, most labels pay for their artists to go. But not ours,” he said. “It bothers me a lot, especially since we’re a group that sells a lot of records and is one of the biggest groups in the Latin market.”

Announced on Tuesday, January 7, the Grammy Award nominations arrives on the heels of Billboard Magazine’ “1996: The Year in Music” special year-end Special Double Issue where La Mafia took top honors in several important Billboard chart categories based on both radio airplay and record sales. The title cut from Un Millon de Rosas, reached the year-end over-all number one spot for “Hot Latin Tracks.” Indeed, “Un Millon de Rosas” has sold more than 400,000 copies so far, which makes it quadruple platinum for Tejano music. Still, de la Rosa expects they’ll enjoy the ceremonies. “If we don’t win, we figure we’ll still get to meet a lot of the other artists. That’s what makes it fun -to talk and socialize.”

Nominated in the Latin music area, Category 52, “Best Mexican American/Tejano Perfromance” for their 1996 Sony Discos release, Un Millon de Rosas, La Mafia is one of five groups chosen from among some 150 finalists. Grammy has dozens of categories, and awards for some are given prior to the telecast, then briefly capsulized in clips later. If La Mafia wins, it won’t be for the live telecast. La Mafia will travel to New York on February 26th to attend the 39th Annual Grammy Awards where they will be counted among the nation’s foremost musical artists.
