Angela Aguilar - Baila Esta Cumbia
Paying homage to the late Queen of Tejano music, Angela Aguilar drops Baila Esta Cumbia, a seven-track EP highlighting some of Selena Quintanilla’s biggest hits. The set kicks off with the title track, giving it a cumbia-banda twist. On the tracks, which include “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” “Amor Prohibido” and others, the 16-year-old Mexican-American singer adds her own flair of cumbia, mariachi or banda music while keeping the songs' essence intact. “I present this EP as a tribute and in gratitude to Selena,” Aguilar wrote on Instagram. “With an admiration of a Mexican / American woman who, along with her family, expressed her love for music and the stage through her dances and songs. I wish I could take your music to more girls who didn't have the opportunity to listen to it.” The set wraps up with a sweet mariachi-pop medley of “I Could Fall in Love” and “Dreaming of You,” where Aguilar proudly flaunts her powerhouse vocals. The release of Baila Esta Cumbia comes a little bit more than two months ahead of the 25th anniversary of Selena's death on March 31. -- JESSICA ROIZ
