Batalla De Sonidos Ritmo Y Voces

Hi Everybody. It’s been a while. Thank you for all the kind comments on past posts. The requests for new material are really what have motivated me to re-learn everything and put something new up on the site, which has been hanging around the Internet for over seven years now. So I present to you a real classic in the true Thrift Store DJ style…scratchy, forgotten music that sounds like it was recorded off AM radio in some distant border town. This one features Guadalajuara Boys and Bando Da Lua Boys in a “Batalla De Sonidos.” Here’s a video from Bando Da Lua:

 

So although the quality of the record is poor, the quality of the music is great. I present “Guadalajuara” as evidence:

    It’s funny that I was just thinking of you. I’ve been long overdue in checking the music blogs (whoever is left) for holiday music and I came across the accordion guy you liked (but you have everything of his already).
    Glad to see you’re still around.

    Thanks for the comment Kurt! Good to hear from you. A lot of the blogs do seem to have faded away. I try to keep my Blogroll up to date, so the ones that are still listed are worth checking out. I just heard on NPR this morning about a new documentary focusing on obscure Christmas music. Sounds right up my alley. Thanks for stopping by!
