Nosotros Adds Two New Members
Nosotros is happy to announce two new official band members to the line up. They are Cha Chi Romero on congas/vocals and Dave Weeks on trumpet
Cha Chi is a very familiar face around the Latin Music scene in New Mexico. Most notably he was the conguero for Sparx. We are happy to have him with us as a full time member of Nosotros.
Dave Weeks is also a recognizable musician on the NM scene. He played for several years with the very popular Paul Del Lago. Another interesting fact about Dave, he was a part of Chubby Checker's band at one time.
You have probably already seen these cats playing with Nosotros the past few months. The extra sound they've added has been tremendous! You can hear Cha Chi and Dave on our next CD and at all Nosotros shows! Come out and help us welcome them to the band.
Nosotros' Latest Release Available online
Nosotros' latest release, "Ver El Sol", is now available online. You can find "Ver El Sol" on iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon and many more sites around the net.
This new material, which we have called "Ver El Sol" (See The Sun), includes the following 4 brand new tunes:
- Víboras (Cumbia)
- American Dream (Rock/Salsa Fusion)
- Solo Un Día (Reggae/Cumbia)
- Cautivado (Salsa/Latin/Dancehall)
In addition to these songs, Ver El Sol also has 2 bonus tracks that feature the late Nosotros singer/instrumentalis/frontman, David "Dave" Diaz. . One of those tracks is a remixed version of "Mama Tierra" that was put together by our bass player, Gilbert Uribe, and includes an inedited saxophone solo by Dave. We really think you will like this cut. The other bonus track is a different version of the cumbia "Viboras," that features David Diaz, once again, on vocals. We like to think of these songs as a tribute to a person that has been, and will be, a very important part of Nosotros.

David Diaz Music From The Heart Endowment Is Established
Jose “David” Diaz was born on October 24, 1973 to Joe and Consuelo Diaz in Las Cruces, New Mexico. As David grew up, he became a brilliant multi-instrumentalist, skilled singer, compassionate teacher, gifted composer and musical mentor.
Music coursed through David's veins like oxygen. Music, sweet music, possessed David's personality like a man touched by God. To wit: a virtuoso, a saint, a comedian, a Holy Fool in the name of his supreme belief -- music. He was a buddy, a mentor, and with a saxophone or microphone in his hands, David was a mellifluous, transcendent (if not mischievous) cherub -- quick to jest, quicker to love.
David was a former member of Nosotros, current member of Felonious Groove Foundation and Fantastic Planet, and a music instructor at Dimensions School of Dance and Music in Albuquerque, NM when he passed on April 9, 2009.
In honor of David, his family established The David Diaz Music from the Heart Endowment managed by the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico. The David Diaz Music from the Heart Endowment will provide financial assistance to music programs and scholarships for young musicians in New Mexico.
