The song made famous by Gael Garcia Bernal in the film Rudo y Cursi was first recorded by this Mexican group. In 2008, their album Desde México was nominated for the GRAMMY® for Best Mexican Regional Album, after spending 42 weeks on Billboard’s Top Latin Album Chart. Yet for many – ourselves included – the beauty of this quintet’s musical stylings were pretty much unknown until now. One of our tweeps on social media, however, this week introduced us to Huichol Musical and we have been hooked ever since.
Their music is at once beautiful and very proud. Take a listen and hear it for yourself. If you’ve always been a fan, tell us why. If not, share with with us what your first reaction is to the music of this this group from the Sierra Madre Occidental region of Jalisco, Mexico. Enjoy!
