To insure that this album had the best Salsa and Latin rhythms sound, one of the musicians of this Los Angeles Latin Band went to Puerto Rico and enlisted the talents of arrangers Eric, Isidro and Trombone player Jorge (who played solo’s on two of the albums singles). The record was mixed in Puerto Rico by Rei Peña (who recorded and mixed greats like Gilberto Santa Rosa, Willie Rosario, and others) and engineered by Willie Sotelo (who is very well known as the M.D. for Frankie Ruiz).

The first single is an up-tempo, tongue & cheek, fun, danceable song that the band believes will be very well received locally, nationally and internationally. The title track is a song that reaches out to those that are expatriated. It is a song which speaks to a feeling that many can identify with, that of missing your native country. We hope that you will enjoy the landscape that this Los Angeles Latin Band paints through their music.
