Songs of love and desperation. Songs of borders and walls and the yearning for a new life. Songs of family and celebration. Songs of sisterhood. Songs that take the best elements of two musical cultures in order to forge a vibrant bilingual fusion of Tex-Mex songs and stories.
The Texicana Mamas is the self-titled debut release by three gifted Latina singer-songwriters: “Our shared love for our Mexican-American heritage and storytelling adds depth and dimension that I’m proud to be a part of” says Hinojosa.
Separately, the The Texicana Mamas bring an expansive variety of musical influences which include folk, conjunto, Americana, flamenco, country, Tex-Mex, rock ‘n’ roll, the Texas singer- songwriter tradition, Lone Star country-rock, and the mariachi, corrido, and norteño traditions of the border. Debuting at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café in the fall of 2018, The Texicana Mamas have made special appearances at The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington DC, Latinapalooza showcase at last year’s South By Southwest music festival, and have other dates in the pipeline. Although the three women came to music by different routes, each is governed by a passion for storytelling and cross-cultural musical fusion.
Clearly, The Texicana Mamas are greater than the sum of their parts. But so is the bi-cultural, groove-laden, genre-compounding, powerfully individual, and collectively joyful music that gets made when these three Texas women take the stage.
