Los Angeles Azules
Los Angeles Azules' song "Cómo Te Voy A Olvidar" is a romantic ballad about the difficulty of forgetting a lost love. The lyrics express the singer's longing to see their beloved's eyes and kiss their red lips again, and how they are reminded of them everywhere they go. The singer wonders how they can forget them when they are present in every rose, every breath, and even in the cross and prayers.
Los Ángeles Azules are a Mexican musical group playing cumbia music since the 1980's. It was formed by the siblings of the Mejía Avante family: Elías, Alfredo, José Hilario, Jorge, Cristina and Guadalupe. In 1997, they had a huge hit with "Cómo Te Voy a Olvidar", re-recorded many hits with guest vocalists including Carla Morrison, Lila Downs, and Ximena Sariñana in 2013. In 2018, they released one of their most popular albums, Esto Sí Es Cumbia, which consists entirely of cover songs. This includes interpretations of "Nunca Es Suficiente" with Natalia Lafourcade, "Me Cuesta Tanto Olvidarte" with Ana Torroja, "Perdón, Perdón" with Ha*Ash, "El Amor Después del Amor" with Fito Paéz, among others. In 2018, they played on the Coachella Stage at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, making it the first time a traditional cumbia group has played at the popular festival.
