Canciones de mi abuelito is deeply personal musical memoire, as told through the art of song by tenor Antonio Figueroa. Accompanied by La Familia Figueroa, a Mariachi band, the classically-trained Figueroa invites listeners to join him in paying homage to the voices and musical traditions that nurtured his childhood and inspired his path.

“This recording tells the story of a family of Mexican immigrants who integrated into their new society by cordially sharing the culture of their original home,” says Antonio Figueroa. “Most of these I first heard sung by people who were very dear to me, and all the songs are associated with my loved ones.”

Among the songs chosen by Figueroa are Paloma Querida, composed by the celebrated songwriter Jose-Alfredo Jiménez, and “Españolerias” by Agustín Lara, along with tunes that may be less familiar to Canadian listeners, such as “Malagueña”, “Deja que salga la Luna”, and “El Pastor.” Closest to Figueroa’s heart are the songs he heard his grandfather and father sing throughout his childhood, such as “Echame a mi la culpa” or “Diez Años.”
