Sold on Tejano Soul

If Tejano Soul seems to stand out solely among their peers, the reasons are many.

The first is originality. This is evident in the fact that their debut compact disc contains eleven original compositions. Eight of them were written by Noe A. Benitez and two of those were co-written with Manuel J. Hernández for their own publishing company. Furthermore, this dynamic duo also owns their label, Grand Monkey Records.

“Why this name, because Tejano Soul is a kind of fraternity in which we call each other monkeys,” Benitez said with a laugh. “But none is us is the Grand Monkey, it’s just one of our own Tejano idiosyncrasies.”
