Bolero Falaz by Los Aterciopelados....the grooviest song here!
Andar Conmigo by Julieta Venegas....multi-talented musician = good music
A Dios Le Pido by Juanes.....because he had to be on the list..it would be like leaving Mana out!
Chuntaros Style by El Gran Silencio.....wa hoo wah!
These artists are some of most successful in the genre. I put this little playlist together for a friend who does not know spanish but has an interest in knowing more about the music. I tried to cover the necessities, the basics and the classics...but even then I had to cut so many worthy songs due to the 80 minutes time limit afforded on the CD to burn. But none the less, I thought I should share this with anyone who may find this of interest.
Some of my top faves are Aleks Syntek (who borders with pop, but none the less is beyond awesome..I saw him in concert this summer in Matamoros), Café Tacuba (that song is hot!), La Ley (the unplugged version of El Duelo with Ely Guerra will blow you away) and Aterciopelados. My ultimate favorite song De Perros Amores by Control Machete also made the cut..I love it...and Ely Guerra also has a vocal apprearance in this song. So check these songs out and google away! Have a good weekend and try to check out any of the events posted below. Support the arts!
