It wasn’t a doubt going into the show, and there certainly was no doubt after.
Regional Mexican music singer-songwriter Ramon Ayala once again solidified his undeniable musical supremacy in an unforgettable performance on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and we can safely state that it was different and more emotional than usual.
Throughout the show, moments were engrained in the minds and hearts of all those in attendance – a nice crowd of thousands appeared not only to see Ramon Ayala perform but also Pancho Barraza and Korina.
The first of those was the appearance of Ramon Ayala and Ramon Ayala, Jr. together. The father and son collaborations gave a moving performance, and their chemistry was undeniably perfect.
Also evident is the great respect that Ramon Ayala, Jr. has for his father and his music. This young man now has a great responsibility as the heir to one of the greatest regional Mexican artists of all time.
Another highlight of the evening was the appearance of Eliseo Robles, another pioneer of the genre. The audience had the fortune of witnessing two men who have forged a past that gave way to the immortality of the genre.
Ramona Ayala and Los Bravos del Norte performed some of his greatest hits including “Un Rinconcito en el Cielo,” “Mi Tesoro,” “Puno de Tierra,” “La Vecina me Puso el Dedo,” and “Del Otro Lade del Porton,” among others. And they were all fabulously portrayed live.
It is worth noting that charismatic Pancho Barraza and newcomer Korina also made appearances, leaving their mark and demonstrating their raw talent.
Korina herself told the audience that when she was young, she sat in one of the seats in the Honda Center and pictured herself one day singing on stage. And that’s exactly what happened.
Ramon Ayala is known for giving himself fully to his performances, and this was no exception. The fans in attendance gave a warm and welcoming response throughout the evening.
After 50 years on stage, one thing remains clear and that’s that Ramon Ayala truly is the “King of the Accordion,” and shows no signs of slowing down.
