Tex-Mex pioneer 'Snowball' blazed trail in RGV

All Pages

Classic Tejano lost another hero recently when pioneer Ramiro "Snowball" de la Cruz passed away of a heart attack.

De La Cruz, 68, died May 20 in McAllen.

Many fans may recall De La Cruz as heading the band Snowball and Co which backed up another pioneer – Laura Canales in her early career. Canales had originally begun her career with Los Unicos and followed with a short stint with El Conjunto Bernal before joining Snowball.

Actually, De La Cruz is recognized for many contributions. With Canales in the group, the band

produced the hit remake “Midnight Blue.” Later the band would become Felicidad which in 1981 would split to form Romance and Laura Canales and Encanto.

The McAllen-based De La Cruz was known as a composer and guitarist. He left behind his wife Fela and  six children.

"Ever since I was little, I used to sing melodies without even knowing the song - it's in my veins - whatever he was I am," Crystal de la Cruz, Snowball’s youngest daughter told McAllen's KGBT-TV.

De La Cruz was born and raised in El Barrio La Paloma of South McAllen on April 14, 1943. He was the second of 12 children and given the nickname "Snowball" by a fellow musicians.

He had other nicknames - "El Guero Polvos." After graduating from McAllen High School he attended Pan American University.

He learned to play guitar at an early age. He named his first guitar "Rusty" and used it for many many years even into his professional music career. His career began when he formed the local Tejano group the Personalities.

Latin Breed "Tejano Enamorado"

Who wrote Latin Breed's "El Tejano Enamorado," perhaps the national anthem of Tejano?

Newsflash

Halfway through the documentary, “Bigger, Stronger, Faster*” you get the sad realization that sometimes our mainstream society is completely lost.

The contradictions, the conflicts. The misleading and mixed messages we get bombarded with daily.

I was lucky enough to tune in as this fascinating documentary was just starting on Showtime on a late Saturday (11/6) afternoon and I was instantly riveted.
