Artes de la Rosa in collaboration with the United States Postal Service will host a celebration for "La Alondra de la Frontera", Lydia Mendoza, with a commemorative stamp unveiling and tribute concert featuring Grammy Winner Little Joe y La Familia on May 16th. The U.S. Postal Service Lydia Mendoza stamp honors the life of one of the first and greatest stars of Tejano music. Mendoza (1916-2007) is seen strumming her 12-string guitar on this lively stamp, one of several that inaugurates the Music Icons series. This square stamp captures the look of a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve, down to a slight weathering away of the colors. The art features a black-and-white publicity photo of Mendoza taken in the 1950s. The flag of Texas, Mendoza's home state, is splashed across the photo, its vertical blue bar and horizontal red stripe providing the stamp's only color. Neal Ashby and Patrick Donohue designed the stamp, working with art director Antonio Alcalá. Grammy Award winner Little Joe & La Familia has been one of the most popular Tex-Mex bands in the music industry. Little Joe has been entertaining more than 50 years and has been described as the "KING OF THE BROWN SOUND". He has also helped pioneer "Tex-Mex" music, a mix of traditional "Norteno" music and country, blues and rock styles. Fifty years and over 50 albums later, Little Joe is touring the world, trail blazing, looking forward to new challenges, breaking down cultural and musical barriers and innovating his musical style. As always, Joe strives to bring many people together to make a more peaceful and harmonious world. For information: 817-624-8333 or www.artesdelarosa.org
