Synopsis

Amazon.com
Miguel y Miguel are one of the most startling success stories in modern Mexican music. Their sound is very traditional--two voices, two guitars, and a bass--but their records are top sellers. The reason is the sheer power and beauty of their work, the nasal, "country" voices blending with the same sweetness of U.S. country duos like the Louvin Brothers, the guitar lines swinging and consistently inventive. This album explores the corrido, or ballad, and includes a new version of Miguel y Miguel's biggest hit, "Sonora y Sus Ojos Negros." For non-Spanish-speakers, the CD is less melodically varied than their classic Cruz de Madera album, but shows them at their purest, as one of the world's great acoustic combinations. --Elijah Wald
