Carlsbad mariachi group receives recognition

CARLSBAD >> It was a match made perfect, courtesy of Facebook. Cipriano Anaya said he posted on his page looking for a singer to join him in a mariachi group.

He found one in Olga Dominguez and “Amor y Lagrimas” was formed. It only took a couple of months before the local residents saw what exactly their new partnership could bring them.

It led them to win an award for Best Mariachi Group Award at KUPB-TV Univision’s Stars of the Permian Basin show in November.

And now the pair is getting ready to launch their official album release at Romance on the Pecos, their release party taking place on Feb. 8 at the Walter J. Civic Center. The event will feature the unveiling of the group’s 11-song album and a live performance from the group and other acts.

Although the CD release may seem rushed, they say it could not come at a more perfect time.
