It's difficult to believe that La Papaya dates from 1998 or so. I love every track on this Ruben Vela effort (HAC 7470, from Hacienda in Corpus Christi). This music is essence of summer. We've heard Ruben Vela and his conjunto so many times. The Austin conjunto festival occurs on the relatively temperate date of May 5 (or the weekend of el cinco de mayo); it started out in Parque Zaragoza, on July 5!
