Long live rock…. cumbia… ranchero… jazz… banda…

11 June 2008

Mazatlán’s “Dia de musica” celebration shows that Sinaloa is more than “German Omm-paa-paa played by Mexicans on stolen instruments”… and there’s a lot more diversity in Mexico than outsiders realize.

And is there ever diversity! Drag queen Regina Orozco — despite a few cat-calls — was a huge hit, keeping the audience enthralled for an entire ninety-minute performance.

    thanks very much for posing this clip – I don’t speak very much Spanish so could not understand the commentary to well, but nice to hear the jazzy piece around the 2:15 mark.

    Loved it!

    Gracias.
    Tony.
