CD Reviews

Mexico's musical heritage is more diverse than we realize.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The CD ¡MÉXICO! was a major revelation to me. Before I heard it, I had not realized what a rich and diverse musical heritage Mexico posseses. I could not have anticipated, for example, the mystically-powerful, indigenous sounds of Konex-Konex, so inventively interpreted by Los Folkloristas. The entire CD is characterized by artful use of traditional instruments, delightful rhythms, enchanting melodies, and an ingenious blend of colorful sonorities. This group--which utterly shatters the typical "gringo" presuppositions about Mexican music--is not to be missed! I was so impressed with this CD that, when I recently traveled to Mexico, I searched out and bought ten other recordings of Los Folkloristas--all of which achieved the same high level of appeal."
Consistently Wonderful and Surprising
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In this album, you will find breadth of musical styles and traditions, excellent production, and beautiful singing and playing. I found this group through BBC Radio 4's use of the introduction to 'Petenera' as the signature sting for a serialised reading of 'Like Water for Chocolate' in 1994 or 1995, and I just had to go out and buy a copy at a shop in London. Another reviewer mentions finding ten other recorings in Mexico! Too far for me to travel! Amazon, get with it! :-) With your excellent profiling engine, I expect to hear from you as soon as you begin to stock more gems from these talented people."
