Digital 92.5, Austin’s Spanish pop radio station brought the group Ha*Ash to Austin last Tuesday. A friend of mine had extra tickets, and invited me to go. I’ve heard Ha*Ash on the radio before and I love their songs.
They are two Mexican-American sisters, Hanna and Ashley, who are from Lake Charles, Louisiana. Their songs are a mix of pop, rock and country. They started singing in the church choir when they were young and have rose to fame in the Spanish pop scene in the past few years.
Although the sisters grew up in Louisiana, they have recorded their albums with Mexican producer Aureo Baqueiro and have had several #1 hits on the Mexican charts. In their latest album, Habitacion Doble, they recorded their first English song, Already Home. Hopefully we’ll see Ha*Ash top the U.S. charts as well! It would be interesting to see if their English-speaking fans would start listening to their Spanish songs too.
