The new version of their greatest hits
The album titled 30th Anniversary was recently released, which is a compilation of 30 iconic songs from the group that have been recorded by the new members.
It is a compilation of the band’s trajectory, founded in 1989 by sons of musicians who were part of the band El Recodo, and every Friday three tracks will be released until adding 30 melodies.
«Little by little we prepare the songs and make them known to people so that they prepare more or less with what they will hear next February 24 at carnival,» said Eduardo Loaiza.
Among the first melodies released from this album are Ay, friend; With romantic music (which at the time made Pancho Barraza famous when he was a member of this group) and poor rancher. In addition, they currently work with the theme Elegis you a mistake, which Rafael González performs.
Rafael and Eduardo joined the ranks of the group in March 2019 and in their opinion, it is very significant and important, both personally and professionally to be part of this anniversary.
«Well happy for this opportunity and this dream that we have been following since we realized that we have the grace to make music, to sing, something that we have always seen. In particular, from my childhood, seeing great personalities in music, singers, starts with being an admiration. Then work and never give up on our dream. We have achieved great things thanks to the office that trusted us to continue this legacy, which we always mentioned, for Recoditos have passed excellent singers, and continue with this music», highlighted Rafael González, originally from Monclova.
He told that on the 30th anniversary album are songs that have already been recorded by Pancho Barraza, Chayo de la Lola, Roberto Junior and many singers who have been part of Los Recoditos, «for what (we are) grateful and also with the people for giving the opportunity to get to know each other little by little.»
Anecdotes and more
When asked the two newest voices of the group if they have already experienced some curious anecdote with some of the songs that have had them recorded from the emblematic repertoire, González confessed that he had already recorded the songs that had touched him, however, in the end he assigned one more, It’s nice, but for this he couldn’t prepare because he was on tour and came almost straight to record it, however, he felt he wasn’t broadcasting anything on the song because he hadn’t studied it.
Banda Recoditos will celebrate its 30th anniversary in a big way.
Suddenly Marcos Figueroa, musical director of the band, made him see this detail and asked him to imagine that he was singing it to his daughter, and that’s when everything was different for Rafael.
«That’s where everything changed, that’s when the magic started and it’s one of the songs that I liked the most (of which it was my turn), but great songs come inside the album.»
He noted that having to record songs that made famous Pancho Barraza and other performers, the challenge they both face is to grow day by day, to learn professionally from their peers who have more time and musical career in the band Los Recoditos . And for people’s taste, doing things the best way, because «anyone starts but stay is the big challenge,» Gonzalez said.
On the aggression he suffered on the Mazatlan boardwalk on the part of a homeless man who was unexpectedly struck him from behind, while he recorded a video for his followers on social media, he points out that it was something unexpected, that he was caught off guard, and that there was no retaliation on his part.
He pointed out that that person who attacked him walks around Mazatlan and he is very identified by the tourist policemen so they are aware that he does not do another evil. He appreciates it happening to him and not to an older person or a minor who could not protect himself.
He doesn’t think about suing or retaliating against the subject, he just spoke to the authorities to arrest him and prevent him from assaulting others who were passing by.

As well as the newly announced Alegres de la Sierra, Los Mazatlecos, Alan Pineda and Banda La Explosive.

Although it is an album that was planned for social networks and to make people know a little bit of the trajectory, and to the new generations show them some of the trajectory of Los Recoditos, the band continues to record songs, making records. By the middle of the year God wills, we have to be working to release the line album, in which they include unreleased tracks, cuts, and thereby I add my voice as a new member of Los Recoditos,» he advanced.
On the nerves as you go on stage, confess that you are always present, so you have one or 15 years old. «Because you never know in yourself what people want. If we knew the recipe or the potion, it would be simple, but this business is not so, the public is sometimes very complicated because he likes the good, however, blessed God, Recoditos has always been characterized by making good music, and right now that we had to enter us, we did it for something and we hope to give people in taste. (We are) very happy to be around and hopefully people like our work.»

We want to bring together all the generations, not the grouping, but the audience that was conquered in the 90s, in the 2000s and in this new stage we want to capture new generations and we hope that all those generations will enjoy the night that we are preparing with great affection for all of them,» he concluded.
