2nd installment of LeBlanc's obsession with Mexican cumbia sonidera. Special attention goes to the position and role of the sonidero in Mexican popular cumbia sonidera. He's the DJ/MC/entertainer with cult status, permanently on the voice over, close to the laser sounds, jingles and effects... pitched voices, heavy rhythm n bass, endless shifting loops, cheap synth sounds, accordeons galore: welcome to any good old block party in Monterrey, Puebla, DF or LA.
MUSICA DEL BARRIO!
