“On Sunday, July 26, Canción Mexicana will highlight the many talented Chicano/Latino artists and supporters that have been inducted into Su Teatro’s Chicano Music Hall of Fame. Music, interviews, and special segments will make this Canción Mexicana unforgettable.
We’ll play classics by Raul Vasquez (inducted along with his wife Silvia in 2013), Eva Nuanez (inducted in 2002), Mitch Garcia (inducted in 2016), Al Gallegos (inducted in 2018) and Dr. Lorenzo A Trujillo (inducted in 2009). An added feature is an interview with Lorenzo.
During our program you’ll hear “Volver, Volver” interpreted by several of the inductees including Larry Lobato, Sr. (inducted in 2018) and several other great artists. Listen for special segments like Chicano Music and Me…with voices from past Inductees like Rudy Bustos (inducted along with his family in 2019), Manuel Molina (inducted in 2019), Pocho Joe (inducted 2018) and more.
Throughout the show you’ll hear music from bands such as Johnny Ritmo Rodriguez y Los Diamantes (inducted in 2017), Indian Nickel Band (inducted 2014), Los Trujillos, Maxine & Company (Maxine was inducted in 2016), Rick Garcia Band (inducted in 2015), and more.

We’re celebrating music born in Mexico and raised in Colorado. We can’t wait to celebrate with our Canción Mexicana listeners.”
