El Conjunto Nueva Ola

Directly from the city of hope – Mexico City, Mexico – in the month of March, 2012, the six-man group EL CONJUNTO NUEVA OLA released its first musical production, an album that is sure to make history. A very unique musical collective, one that will revolutionize the recording industry. The first promotional single from their album is titled “CHIDO, CHIDO” (“Cool, cool”) a classic title in the history of tropical music, but one that here takes on a completely different vibe.

The group is comprised of lead singer Urbano López, guitarist Luzio Nava, bassist Primitivo Ríos, percussionist Hipólito Madero, El Tacho on timpani and El Raio Manzares on keyboards. Their mission is simple: bring flavor and get people to dance to the rhythm of cumbia, mixing new wave, rock and disco sounds into hits from various iconic groups like La Sonora Dinamita, to the late Chico Che & Rigo Tovar.

Under the LUZ RECORD label, their first record was headed by renowned songwriter/producer Ferra with José Quiroz as Executive Producer. The tracks include “Cuando seas grande”, “Chicharrona (My sherona)”, “Cumbia town (Funky town)”, “De quien chon”, “Chido, chido” (first promotional single), “La estaca”, “Perdóname mi amor”, “Los luchadores”, “La suavecita”, “Mi cucú”, “Albañil de la pensil”, “Vía láctea”, “Quítate la máscara”, and “Take on me”.

Despite its track list, EL CONJUNTO NUEVA OLA does not consider itself a cover band. The group members affirm that they “take the work of (de)composing lyrics from powerful tunes like ‘Chicharrona’, ‘El albañil de la pensil’ and ‘Cumbia town’ and others very seriously.”

The next single coming out is “El Pirilí” set to be released August 28th followed by El Tieso in late October. The band is preparing a 6 song E.p of original compositions that go from their distinctive humor to sexy-cumbia love songs called “Poemas musicales de mis pechugas
