Angélica Maria is part of the incredible lineup at “Noche De Recuerdo.”
The lineup of artists playing Saturday, May 21 at the Microsoft Theater (fka Nokia Theater) at L.A. Live is proof that music doesn’t follow manmade borders. There are artists from Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Venezuela playing at “Noche De Recuerdo,” but, judging by the popularity of each artist beyond their respective native lands, they all belong to Latin America – and, after five decades and multiple generations of fans, they’re still going strong.
“Noche De Recuerdo” promises to be a night of memories. Here are five reasons you need to be at the Microsoft Theater this Saturday.
L.A. Live – It seems like every few months there is something new and cool at L.A. Live. The many restaurants and bars make this place the perfect location to start and end the night when coming to a concert. There really is a little something for everyone.
Angélica Maria – Known as “La Novia de Mexico,” Angélica Maria’s career has aged gracefully since she came into the spotlight as a child star – in the 1940s. During a career which has spanned eight decades, Angélica Maria has shared the stage and screen (She’s been a Mexican telenovela star for a long time as well.) with some of the most important figures in Latin American entertainment.
Los Terrícolas – “The Earthlings” is the English translation of their name, but their trajectory has been out of this world. Their repertoire is so vast they often headline shows on their own. The fact that they’re one of several renowned acts speaks to the quality of this lineup. “Lloraras,” “Una Carta” and “Te Juro Que Te Amo” are sure to be among the night’s favorite moments.
Los Angeles Negros – If you’re Latino, chances are you’ve had an uncle hijack the DJ system for a moment to play a song by Los Angeles Negros in the wee hours of the morning at least once. Like Los Terrícolas, Los Angeles Negros have an incredible repertoire (with “Y Volvere,” “Dejenme Si Estoy Llorando” and “Debut Y Despedida” as their biggest hits) that can easily take over the night. They’re one of the biggest groups to come out of Chile, but like the rest of the lineup, their sound has reverberated across Latin America for the last half century.
King Clave – Just like many of his Argentine counterparts from the 1970s (such as Leo Dan, Leonardo Favio and Palito Ortega), King Clave’s pop ballads have served as the musical backdrop for countless memories over the past 40-plus years. His biggest hit, “Mi Corazon Lloro,” is a classic that still features prominently on American and Latin American radio waves.
