Canciones De Mi Padre (Spanish for "Songs of My Father") is Linda Ronstadt`s first album of Mexican traditional Mariachi music. At 2½ million US sales, Canciones De Mi Padre is the biggest selling non-English language album in American record history. This album has been RIAA certified Double-Platinum (for over 2 million US copies sold) and also won Ronstadt the Grammy Award for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album at the 31st Grammy Awards. Inspired by the enchanting music of her father`s homeland in Sonora, Mexico, veteran songstress Linda Ronstadt stepped into the studio in 1987 and onto the live stage in 1991 with the intention of not only preserving her rich heritage, but also connecting with her past. Recording songs that she learned from her father as well as ones she discovered while studying the unmistakable vocal traditions of Mexico, Linda Ronstadt offers a collection of unforgettable songs.
