Finally! The cool guys @ Nrmal released today the Norte Sonoro EP 1. This is the resulting work of a residence/festival they organized past November 2011 in Monterrey, were a bunch of international producers and musicians, including me, had the chance to reinterpret the sounds of northern Mexico. I had the chance to meet and share with so many talented people, such as Helado Negro, Mumdance, DJ /rupture, Toy Selectah, White Rainbow and Chanca Via Circuito, and we all managed to produce very interesting pieces of work, each one of us took the music they provided us and gave it their own style.
My track is called “La Espina del Cardenche”, it’s a piece that mixes elements from different styles, and the lead vocals are from the song “Yo ya me voy a morir a los desiertos”, recorded by Los Cardencheros de Sapioriz. These guys are pushing 80 years old and are the very last cardenche group in history. I will always remember when they saw me perform this song live and said “now we know our music will live forever”.
Hope you can find a couple of minutes to listen to our work and share it with your friends. It’s a free download!
