While recreating the greatest hits that made Rigo Tovar a legend, the percussionist, producer and composer Emir Pabón remembers the impact that this idol had on Mexican culture while also recalling his personal connection to the artist as his godson. Pabón, who also serves as the percussionist for Grupo Cañaveral, is proud to now present Rigo Puro Amor.
As a celebration of both the anniversary of Rigo Tovar’s birth (March 29) and his death (March 27), Pabón has reimagined Tovar’s greatest hits. This new tribute album, which also happens to be Pabón’s debut full length release, features collaborations with esteemed artists such as Mariana Seoane, Percance, Jorge Medina, Grupo Cañaveral, Los Rojos, Fátima Campo, and PeeWee. Listeners will be able to enjoy cumbia classics such as “La Múcura”, “Amor Sincero”, “¿Quién será la mujer?”, and “Quítate la máscara”.
Emir Pabón is known as an artist that likes to reinvent himself and be at the vanguard. Adapting different sounds is part of his artistic essence, which he continues to do with Rigo Puro Amor.
Rigo Puro Amor will be available starting March 26 on all digital formats.
