A Musical Wednesday: Calexico & Mariachi Luz de Luna

Let's have a little entertainment today. Here is the indie rock group Calexico, based in Tucson, AZ, playing with the magnificent mariachi band Luz de Luna. The song: The well known "Son Jarocho" tune El Cascabel (7:05). (The Son Jarocho, originating in southern Veracruz, is one of the most dynamic variations of the musical/dance genre known as the Son Mexicano, the "folk music" of Mexico.)

The venue: Live at the Barbican Theatre in London, 2002.



Man, those guys are great together, and that is some great music!

You can find out more about Calexico and hear more of their music at their Web site: Casa de Calexico. I think some enterprising organizer type should try to get them down to Rocky Point for a concert, preferably along with Luz de Luna. Any volunteers?
