"The Son is the foundation of all Mexican Popular Music. In the Huasteca, the Son is known as the Huapango, in Vera Cruz it is the Son Jarocho, in Oaxaca its the Chilena. The Son is known by many different names throughout rural Mexicobut at its heart, the Son is the fusion of Spanish Music with Indian and African influences.The Anthology of Mexican Sones was compiled by Mexican ethnomusicologists in the 1970's and 80's. They travelled the backroads of rural Mexico looking for performers of traditional music. These researchers were the Mexican versions of the Lomaxs.This Anthology is best collection of Mexican folk music than be found in one place. These albums are filled with powerful performances. This collection is difficult to find. If you are lucky enough to find it, purchase them right away and count your good fortune. You will not be dissapointed. I own nearly a thousand recordings of world folk music and this collection is my all time favorite."
