Another talented little girl, only 5 yrs old and already quite a talented musician. Música Llanera comes from Venezuela and Colombia. "Llaneros" are traditional cattle herders, mixed Spanish/indigenous, from the grasslands of western Venezuela and eastern Colombia. They have a long, rich history, including llanera music, which often includes the harp along with the cuatro and maracas. I think of them kind of like the Colombian/Venezuelan version of Argentina's gauchos.

And here's a young charro, the Mexican version of the Argentine gaucho, the Colombian/Venezuelan llanero, or the American/Canadian cowboy. He's singing one of my favourite Mexican songs, La Malagueña, a traditional song in the Son Huasteco/ Huapango genre. There's a bit of back and forth with the host before getting to the song, including when he takes a sombrero off the host's head and then laughs at him "because you're not supposed to let anyone take off your sombrero".

Another version of La Malagueña, as interpreted by Gaby Moreno on "A Prairie Home Companion". Gaby Moreno is a Guatemalan singer, now based in the US.

We closed our Banamex Patrimonial account this time last year but I keep getting these offers to buy tickets for concerts in Mexico City - before they are offered to the public. We have a younger friend who is now teaching in Mexico City and she always says the venues are no good. Here is a list of recent performers. Anyone know if any of them are any good ? From time to time we hop in a cab where the driver is playing great folksy type Mexican music. Never have tracked it down myself...

Residente, Soy Luna, Caligaris, Morat, Father John Misty, Emmanuel y Mijaris, Enjambre, Shawn Mendes, Mario Bautista ...

Well, horseshoe, since you asked... Of course, musical tastes are so diverse some of the above-mentioned may be good musicians, but not necessarily to your liking.

Of the above artists, I hadn't heard of Los Caligares, Morat, Father John Misty (who's from the US), Enjambre, or Mario Batista (although I realize I've heard some of his songs on the radio without paying attention to who he is). This is probably overkill, but I'll give you a brief upshot and link to a video to each artist/group so you can decide if you think they're any good. This will take several posts, and it won't all be today.

I'll start with the first on your list. "Residente" is half of the Puerto Rican duo "Calle 13" (his step-brother is known as "Visitante"). Their genre is generally described as alternative rap, but they brought in diverse influences from many other genres, including jazz, bossa nova, salsa, regaetton, cumbia, and tango. Last year the duo broke up to each go solo. "Residente" is now on tour as a solo artist. I was fortunate enough to be at Calle 13's last public performance together last summer during the Panamerican Games in Toronto. They are also well known for their social activism, support for humanitarian causes, and promoting peace/denouncing violence.

Here is my favourite video by Calle 13. It's called "Latinoamerica". "Residente" is the one narrating (rapping). I'm not going to translate the whole song (for those interested, it is rich in metaphor, and the words in Spanish are easily found online), but I will translate the chorus (which brings in 3 other Latin American artists: Peruvian Susana Baca, Colombian Totó la Momposina and Brazilian Maria Rita).

You cannot buy the wind
You cannot buy the sun
You cannot buy the rain
You cannot buy the heat
You cannot buy the clouds
You cannot buy the colours
You cannot buy my happiness
You cannot buy my pain

You cannot buy the sun
You cannot buy the rain
We are walking
We are drawing the path
You cannot buy my life
My land is not for sale
