04 May LEGIÓN ALTERNA Presents their latest single “Los Pasajes de la Vida”
Dynamic “norteño alternativo” ensemble from Chihuahua, Mexico
Vesper Public Relations: Los Angeles. May 2021. Legión Alterna, a norteño group originally from Chihuahua, México, continues their successful musical journey after their debut during the COVID pandemic.
The quartet has introduced a new and singular music style, giving honor to their name – “Legión” means group and “Alterna” means alternative. Each of the group members has strong musical backgrounds, which have converted Legión Alterna into one of the most unique ensembles of today.
Each member draws influences from different genres, including classic rock, funk, reggae and progressive Regional Mexican. These diverse elements add to the group’s alternative approach to the Regional Mexican genre. Moreover, the members have also been part of other musical groups and have experience in recording studios.
Legión Alterna performs a variety of styles, but unlike other artists in Regional Mexican music, they don’t perform songs with lyrics that mention drug trafficking and organized crime.
Legión Alterna’s goal is to present songs with socially conscious lyrics that the public can identify with. Their upcoming single, “Te Va A Doler” (“You Will Feel Hurt”), is a ballad with pop-rock influences, and their full-length album will be launched this fall with 10 original songs bringing classic norteño and alternative rock influences together.
After observing the musical preferences of younger generations, Edwin Reyes (Bajo Quinto and Vocals), Richi Ibarvo (Accordion and Vocals), Gio Ramírez (Bass), Martin Parra (Drums) decided to create a new norteño project featuring a diversity of other musical influences, resulting in the formation of Legión Alterna. Each member carries norteño music in their veins but also loves other genres, giving the group an alternative touch.
Their most recent single “Pasajes De La Vida” (Stages of Life), is a socially conscious corrido about a man who grew up impoverished but succeeded in life via hard work.
Another one of their singles “Dos Caminos” (“Two Paths”) invites listeners to reflect upon the story of young man and his bad decisions, which ultimately change his life. The lyrics also truly give justice to the song title, conveying how we all face the reality of having to choose between good and bad paths.
Legión Alterna is an original, alternative norteño group whose main focus is to produce and perform socially relevant songs with impeccable execution.
