EDITORS’ NOTES

Fronted by the perpetually restless Oscar De La Rosa, the decades-spanning Texas ensemble La Mafia keep on expanding the scope of música mexicana. The surprising duets album Vozes even kicks off with a delightfully fierce reggaetón jam ("Te Voy a Amar Asi"). You can still hear the group's Tejano roots in the flashes of cumbia, banda, and conjunto throughout, but it's the bounty of fiery pop-rock ballads ("Aquí Está Mi Amor") that makes this album unique in La Mafia's catalog, along with dips into wholly unexpected sounds like bouncy Jamaican reggae ("Enamorada").
