LA TROPA F
The Tejano group La Tropa F is comprised of members of the musical Farias family — Joe (bajo sexto and vocals) David (lead vocals and accordion), Juan (drums), Jaime (keyboards), Jesse (bass) and Jesse Jr. (percussion). Already with several recordings under their collective belt, they signed to the Manny Music label in 1990, scoring their breakthrough hit with the chart-topping “Mil Noches.” In 1992, La Tropa F won the “Best Local Conjunto” award at the first annual “Pura Vida” Hispanic Music Awards; a year later, they also won the committee’s “Best Conjunto” award, that same year taking home “Conjunto of the Year” honors at the 13th Annual Tejano Music Awards. Their many recordings include 1994’s Culturas, 1995’s Hermanos Hasta El Fin, 1996’s A Un Nuevo Nivel, 1997’s Musica Sin Frontera and 1998’s Desde el Corazon de Texas.
Los Monarcas are truly monarchs in the world of Conjunto/Tejano music. The Houstonians span three generations of family tradition; Los Monarcas originally came together in 1966, when Pedro Díaz and his young son Mario first recorded for the Teardrop label. The group toured around the Houston area, playing at weekend functions as a result of local airplay popularity. In 1974, Pedro Díaz, Sr. retired from the group and was replaced by his son Pete. While recording for the legendary Nacho Garza, the group released several LP’s on the “Cierra” label, Cara Records and later went international with CBS.
Los Monarcas continue their much-earned success by touring nationally and internationally with TV appearances on the Johnny Canales show and others.
It was truly a matter of time before two great legends came together (Hacienda Records and Los Monarcas). The result is the brilliant CD “Monarca Special”, filled with all the emotion and energy that classics are truly made of.
