Here’s what I’ve been listening to this morning, a hits collection by Los Muecas, singing with one or more banda groups (it doesn’t say on the cover, but I know from poking around on the web that at least on some songs they are singing with a banda group called Los Coyonquis). Fiery stuff isn’t it? It will definitely wake you up!
I don’t know how it is in other states, but with the large number of Mexican immigrants in Texas, compilations like the one I’ve been playing are cheap and plentiful. I often find racks of them at the grocery store and sometimes I’ll pick one out at random. Sometimes I like them, sometimes not, but they tend to be less than $5 each, so it’s worth the risk. I’ve found some real gems that way.
