Penned by Eduardo García Márquez, “La Reunión” is a preview of Los Tigres del Norte’s forthcoming album due in the fall.

As always, the band’s new song comes with a poignant message: a call for family unity and forgiving mistakes in order to build a strong foundation of love for their children.

 

After the band’s longest touring hiatus, “Los Jefes de Jefes” will soon celebrate another reunion, this time with their fans in the upcoming U.S. tour set to kick off September 10 in Kentucky.

Los Tigres del Norte Receive Special GLAAD Award for “Era Diferente”

Los Tigres del Norte have plenty of reason to be GLAAD

The norteño band received the Special Recognition (Spanish Language) Award at the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards, held on March 21 at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton.

Los Tigres del Norte  earned the award for their single “Era Diferente,” the first gay love song in the band’s 47-year history. The story of a young girl who falls in love with her female best friend, it’s also the first song of its kind in the genre.

Bandleader Jorge Hernandez, who wrote the lyrics while his brothers worked on the music, was surprised by the honor.

“I thought that no one would notice this song,” he told The Advocate. “[But now] people request it. The community is coming out to see us and this brings us great pride that these songs connect with them and brings them closer to us.”

Hernandez has said the idea for “Era Diferente,” from their most recent album Realidades, was born out of conversations with devout fans in the LGBT community over the years who wondered when they would write a corrido (a sung narrative) about them. “This interaction always stayed with me,” added Hernandez, “and I had the idea that one day I would write a song that would talk about this type of relationship.”

The five-member band, which recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, hopes to continue to reflect the stories of all Latinos.

“Sometimes in the Latino community we see machismo and problems with acceptance, but this is an area where acceptance is the most important because this is such a large community and we must accept people who love each other and live normal, happy lives,” Hernandez told The Advocate.
