Rancheras are Mexican country-western, cowboy music that is sung on the ranches. The singers dress in big hats, are always on horses, and ride in Mexican rodeos - it's all about the Mexican male and the ability to sing loudly. The songs are beautiful with a lot of harmonies. "Solamenta Una Vez" was his dad's absolute favorite and almost every Chicano family in the Southwest had the record. Eydie Gorme and Los Panchos were very popular at the time.
On his new album, "Big Station," Alejandro covers "Sabor A Mi," a favorite song that his Dad used to his Mom when times were good.
