Los Tucanes De Tijuana Have The Key To The City Of Coachella And It Just Makes Sense

Back in January when Coachella announced its lineup, norteño fans were excited to see Los Tucanes de Tijuana booked for the two-weekend festival. Most known for their song “La Chona,” the group is one of the most widely celebrated bands in norteño music. Making it onto the Coachella lineup would have been reason enough to celebrate but this week the group got even more good news. According to KESQ, the group was presented with the keys to the city of Coachella ahead of their landmark performance in Indio, California this weekend.

Los Tucanes de Tijuana are the first artists in the festival’s history to be awarded the key to the city of Coachella.

On Thursday, they will be presented with a key to the city of Coachella, according to Goldenvoice, the promoter of the Coachella festival. The ceremony took place on April 11 at the Coachella Library, a Q&A followed with a discussion about the band and their impact in the Coachella valley.

Los Tucanes de Tijuana began their musical careers in 1987 in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, which is less than four hours away from Indio. Hit singles like “La Chona,” “Mis Tres Animales,” and “El Tucanazo” put the norteño music genre on the map that spread into the U.S. Overall, the group has sold over 14 million albums worldwide and has amassed a huge following.

The group has various ties the Coachella Valley, which makes their upcoming performance more special.

While some might not know, the group has close ties to the city of Coachella. The group started playing in Coachella in their early days at a club known as La Copacabana. Even various members of the group, Mario Quintero Lara, David Servin Raya, Tomas Herrera, Gustavo Labrada Valenzuela, and Alfredo Gonzalez Gonzalez, have family who lives in the area. Their group manager also comes from Coachella.

“The band has close ties to the city,” Coachella Mayor Steven Hernandez told the Desert Sun. “We can identify with them.”

As well as receiving the honor, Los Tucanes de Tijuana will become the first norteño band to take the stage at Coachella.

The group will be leaving their mark at Coachella by becoming the first norteño band to take the stage at the festival. As well as Coachella, the group will be performing at CHELLA on Wednesday, April 17.

It’s a landmark moment for the group in terms of representation on a mainstream U.S. festival. All of this is well deserved recognition for the group that has supplied the soundtrack to countless quinceaneras and backyard parties.

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.
