Mexican trio Cafe Tacuba celebrates 15 years of making--and often revolutionizing--Spanish rock with Un Viaje. This lush, luxurious live set includes three discs of music and one electrifying DVD. (Separate versions are also available, but this generous edition is the most satisfying and is moderately priced.) The group has culled the best moments from a two-night stand in Oct. 2004 at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, and the results are consistently electric. Every song, every rhythm, every guitar lick, every laugh is important, a not-to-be-missed moment. Cafe Tacuba's potent mix of music and message is a powerful thing, and the group thrives in its unflinchingly earnest, sweetly sincere approach to its art. Even during backstage interviews and recording studio hijinks, each member seems wholly pleased to be a part of the process. Throughout the proceedings, Cafe Tacuba's ardent fans thank them with hoots, hollers and constant singalongs to almost every song, making Un Viaje a joyous trip for everyone involved. --Joey Guerra ...

5-0 out of 5 stars ¡Ojalá que los anglosajones conozcan a los Tacubos!
Unos dias antes de la grabación des estos discos en la Ciudad de México yo vi a los Tacubos en el 'Shepherds Bush Empire' (Londres, Inglaterra).Que lástima que los anglosajones no conozcan a los Tacubos. Mi mujer y yo eramos los solos gringos, más o menos.Toda la población mexicana de la capital británica estaba allí.¿Dónde estaban los ingleses? ¡Que vergüenza!

Café Tacuba are the greatest, most original, most intelligent and also the funniest band in the world, bar none.Their post-modernist take on a whole variety of musical genres, be theyrock, mariachi, tango, punk or son, is as addictive as it is refreshing, and until you actually get to hear it, it's almost impossible to describe, but what better introduction than this CD/DVD set.And at $14.99 what a deal!

The concert is beautifully planned.They start with some beautifully melodic quasi Mexican numbers and then we hear those brash synthesizer chords that herald 'cero y uno', and everyone goes wild (as we did here in London, except, sadly, what I mean is that the Mexicans in London went wild, because the Brits were all at home watching TV).Thereafter, the collection never disappoints.I particularly enjoy 'El baile y el salón' - 'Nos besamos bailando.....'It's a lovely lyric and one hell of a tune, but it's hard to single out any one magical moment, because there are so many.

Café Tacuba epitomizes the vibrancy, intelligence and originality of modern Mexican culture.What Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were to the visual arts the Tacubos are to music, so why are they practically unknown outside their homeland?

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing box set!
This is the first Cafe Tacuba's live release and it exceeds expectations. The group is amazing performing live, indeed this concert has great video edition and excellent sound. I would not get tired of say that this is the best latin american group. They mix all kind of rhythms and genres in order to create exceptional music. I recomend fully this box set for everyone, even the people have not listened them yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars ¡¡Cinco estrellas no bastan!!
Por lo general lo que oigo es rock pesado, muy pesado.Pero Cafe Tacuba siempre me ha gustado.Cuando leí en la prensa el lanzamiento de su cd en vivo, no dude en irlo a buscar.Y la verdad, vale cada centavo que pagué por él.Claro, como habrán leido en las anteriores opiniones, es una verdadera ganga (tres cds y un dvd por solo 14.99).Y si le añadimos que lo escucharán una y otra vez y otra vez y otra vez, pues... que mas puedo decir.Como dije, cinco estrellas no bastan para describir este grandioso trabajo. ...

She was famous as both artist and model, infamous as political revolutionary and social libertine, and Frida Kahlo's controversial life couldn't help but seem the stuff of great musical theater. Her story is brought to the screen by director Julie Taymor, whose musical compatriot here is also her husband; Elliot Goldenthal, student of both Copland and Corigliani, shrewdly sublimates his modernism in service of the rich, evocative music and songs of Mexico and Central America. Utilizing performers that range from the contemporary (Lila Downs) to the folk-classic (Costa Rican legend Chavela Vargas; Brazilian star Caetano Veloso) and traditional (Los Cojolites, El Poder Del Norte, Trio Huasteca, Caimanes de Tanquin, and others), Goldenthal generously displays the true breadth of Mexican folk music, while seamlessly infusing it with the minimalist corners of his own underscore and some winning songwriting of his own. The result is one of 2002's most compelling soundtracks. The enhanced CD features include musical film excerpts, as well as a video conversation between Goldenthal and star Salma Hayek and text interviews with the composer and director Taymor. --Jerry McCulley ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Hypnotizing and beautiful!
Elliot Goldenthal, the scorer of movies such as "Heat" and "Titus," comes back with a brilliant blend of traditional Mexican and original latin music to go with one of the best movies of 2002: Julie Taymor's "Frida." The soundtrack as a whole is simply outstanding, yet it has some peak moments: Lila Downs' performances, most specifically the opening track, 'Benediction and Dream,' the sexy tango 'Alcoba Azul' and the theme that plays during the closing titles, 'Burn it blue' which she performs with Brazilian super-star, Caetano Veloso. Also the rendition of "La Llorona" by Chavela Vargas is outstanding. The tracks that are part of his score work are also outstanding, and reminded me a lot of the music from the album "Ronroco" by Argentinian composer and producer, Gustavo Santaolallas. All in all, a very eclectic and hypnotizingly beautiful soundtrack with supreme good taste.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hypnotizing, beautiful and now, winner of a Golden Globe!
Elliot Goldenthal, the scorer of movies such as "Heat" and "Titus," comes back with a brilliant blend of traditional Mexican and original latin music to go with one of the best movies of 2002: Julie Taymor's "Frida," which earned him a Golden Globe this year. The soundtrack as a whole is simply outstanding, yet it has some peak moments: Lila Downs' performances, most specifically the opening track, 'Benediction and Dream,' the sexy tango 'Alcoba Azul' and the theme that plays during the closing titles, 'Burn it blue' which she performs with Brazilian super-star, Caetano Veloso.

3-0 out of 5 stars hmm, not what you'd expect...
Of course Goldenthal would win accolades for a film score which is pretty atypical for his body of work. Gone are the driving basses, the thunderous percusions, the Strussian strings. They're replaced with latin flavors and some great songs which, while wonderful, are not what a true fan of Goldenthal's work would expect. Perhaps he got the Oscar for his work the previous year for FINAL FANTASY, a much better work and vastly more representative of Goldenthal's style.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
This is a great soundtrack. The tracks are dynamic and energetic, perfect for any day (or night). Would highly recomend for any lover of latin music. Very beautiful.

5-0 out of 5 stars would stand out even without the film
Soundtracks are usually mood music, and would not stand out without attachment to images of their film.This music would stand out anyway.The compositions are impressive enough to be traditional mexican favourites(of the yurning kind), which is why it is hard to believe that a relatively young/modern-world or 'non-mexican village old man' person wrote them.
The instruments are crystal clear (some are actually made of glass)and combine well together.Modern ones fit emotionally satifyingly with the old ones.No culture is lost in the process.The singers are excellent at crying whilst still hitting the notes. As sadness and tragedy is its motif, this cd is "emotionally very heavy". ... Read more

Topflight pop singer pays tribute to her heritage on this amazing roots ranchera album that also features excellent backing by the world-famous Mariachi Vargas, all under the experienced hand of master arranger-composer-producer Ruben Fuentes. Everything clicks wonderfully here, but numbers that set a new standard include "Tu Solo Tu," an incredibly harmonic love ode; "Por un Amor," on the price of real love; and "Los Laureles," a song of declaration on which Ronstadt soars unbelievably high. These are old Mexican classics, played by arguably the world's best mariachi group and sung by one of North America's greatest vocal talents. Extras include performances by another world figure, requinto player Gilbert Puente, who made trio history when he led Mexico's Los Tres Reyes in the '50s and '60s. In the mariachi-ranchera genre, this CD easily ranks among the very best. --Ramiro Burr ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The most widely recognized album in the Latino community
As I'm typing this review, I realize I've left this c.d. at home, and I miss it terribly. While growing up, I'd be at barbecues or parties and this album would be played, and the reactions by some of the older people who'd grown up listening to this music when it was still being written was somewhat of a cliche. Some would be tearful, some would become more boisterous, and of course I never understood it all. Then I finally bought the album. The excellent production, Linda Ronstadt's soaring voice, the songs, and the heart put into this album (insert cliche here) made me want to listen to it more and more. In actuality, it has made me go out and search for more recordings of Mariachi music. Every one I know has bought or heard this album and has loved it, and that's a fitting tribute, including friends and acquaintances who are not Latinos. A must have for anyone who loves great music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Like it
Linda has a very strong voice and I like that in an artist I just don't know what took me so long to listen to here. I loved all the song on the albums and wish she had more spanish albums then she did.

5-0 out of 5 stars CANCIONES DVD Available June 8, 2004!!!
The stunning concert show CANCIONES DE MI PADRE Starring LINDA RONSTADT & DANNY VALDEZ is now available! Yes, this concert dvd is the critically acclaimed tour show that showcased LINDA RONSTADT to sold out venues and audiences across the USA in 1988. You must see Ronstadt "live" and also experience "An Evening In Old Mexico" with Linda and company! Absolutely no other performer can sing so sincere and passionately from the heart, hold the notes amazingly for what seems forever, captivate, hypnotize, bewilder & entertain an audience with their vocal abilities like LINDA RONSTADT does. Twenty one spectacular songs are performed fully on stage as well as acted out - this is a show you'll cherish forever. Only nine of the performed songs on this Dvd appear on Miss Ronstadt's Mariachi Cd Albums("Canciones De Mi Padre" & "Mas Canciones")and she also performs among others, the heartfelt classics "Volver, Volver" and soulful Mexican standard "Cancion Mixteca" as the double encore. Viva LaRONSTADT!!! Also available at Amazon.com!

2-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre
Kudos for her as an artist to make a difficult cross-over from Pop to Mariachi. However, the arrangements aren't innovative, she chose some questionable songs, as a singer she lacks good phrasing in Spanish,and her voice is monotonous (her voice has only one color, and she doesn't present us with meaningful volume contrasts).

5-0 out of 5 stars GOOD SPANISH LEARNING PRACTICE
When I was little around six I used to dread having to learn Spanish and freaking about speaking it in front of my grandmother. Until my mom bought a copy of Linda Ronstadt's Canciones De Mi Padre and by learning the lyrics to Tu Solo Tu I had memorized the whole song IN SPANISH by heart. Thanks to this cd my Spanish has greatly improved and not as weak as some speakers. If you are looking for a good way to learn Spanish this cd is for you and if you love the way Linda sings in Spanish try any cds by Pedro Fernandez and once again Happy listening and happy learning too ...

Glorious vocals and impeccable production make Mexico en la Piel one of the best moments in superstar Luis Miguel's already-illustrious career. The album of mariachi classics is superb from start to finish, thanks in large part to the accompaniment of Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán. Miguel's previous albums of bolero classics were polished, if predictably safe, affairs. His albums of original tunes (Aries, Amarte es un Placer, 33) were less successful, often relying on dated arrangements that made him sound hopelessly out of touch with modern music. Mexico en la Piel, however, is a revelation. It honors past musical traditions via smart, classy song selections and still bristles with immediacy and edge. Miguel's immense success could have easily found him resting on his laurels. Instead, he has delivered an often-thrilling collection that should appease old and new fans of any age. --Joey Guerra ...

There’s no doubt that singer Lila Downs' profile is on the rise after her appearance in the film Frida and on the accompanying soundtrack, which led to a performance at the 2003 Academy Awards. The dividing lines between cultures and classes are major themes throughout the Mexican-American singer's decade-long career; but whereas 2001’s Border is more angry about the disparities, One Blood: Una Sangre is more inclusive, if only for the hopeful note of unity sounded in the English-language version of the title cut (the album has two distinctly different readings of the song sung, respectively, in English and Spanish). While much of the cumbia-based, genre-breaking material here is original, Downs and her band completely revamp two covers: Ritchie Valens classic "La Bamba" features techno beats and African drumming; the folk song "La Cucaracha" opens with wailing guitar before settling into a gentle reggae groove. Stylistically restless and lyrically didactic, One Blood: Una Sangre is as ambitious as it is beautiful. –-Tad Hendrickson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Surprising
Listening to the first track the first time, you think this is going to be an average album, maybe a mistake to get it. But as the album progresses each song reveals flavours and styles that are surprising, interesting, varied and strong. Even two songs as overworked/corny as La Bamba and La Cucaracha come off new and fresh. This could album could appeal to people who like cumbia, flamenco, jazz, Cuban, or Latin influence music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Hip
This is a beautiful album! I had never heard of Lila Downs but was immediatly struck by her vocal prowress and the unique musical arrangement of the songs. I heard the album playing in a bookstore and ran over to the music department to purchase it right away. The lyrics have many layers of meaning that leave you with a rich satisfying experience. The music is soulful, haunting, and hip with a nod to tradition. I recommend this album to anyone who thinks and feels.

5-0 out of 5 stars Until there's a live album...
this will have to do!!! But, hey, this is one killer album and a must buy for any fan of Lila, World Music and Women's music.

Although I would have to say La Linea is probably still my personal fave--mostly because it was the current album when I first got into her music-- Una Sangre will likely go down as her best effort yet and will at the very least set the bar really high for the band for future albums.

This is, of course, due largely to the awesome ensemble sound of her new international band and the excellent input of her husband (and band's keyboardist and sax player), Paul Cohen. Arguably this group should have its own name, as this is less a solo album by a singer and noticeably more a "group effort".

This is not to say that Lila's signing is anything less than superb on this album! I think she demonstrates better technique and is in generally "better voice" (you singers know what I am talking about!) on this album than she is on her previous albums.

There are so many excellent tracks on this disc that I cannot do all of them justice in less than 1000 words, so I will mention just one in particular: Malinche. Check out the syncopated timing, the communication and tightness of the musicians, the unmistakable way the band gradually weaves its intricate sound, the way parts of the song melt and blend into each other.

This is called style, folks, and that's what this album has achieved: a signature sound that only this collection of musicians can accomplish. It's funky, it's hip, it's jazzy, it's intellectual, it's traditional, it's cutting edge, it has monster grooves, impressive instrumental sections and beautiful vocals.

Buy it today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great album, get this please
Using different languages and musical styles as vehicles, Lila Downs' new album, Una Sangre (One Blood), is an emotional journey into cultural diversity and understanding in an effort to show us all our similarities. While cultural exploration is undoubtedly the focus of Una Sangre, under the rich tapestry of music lie poetic social commentary and themes of empowerment. Subtle hip hop-like production and Downs' entrapping vocals handsomely conceal a tribute to a female lawyer murdered in 2002 for fighting for human rights on the Spanish sang "Dignificada."

Heavy handed notions do not prevent Downs from having fun on Una Sangre. Creative and intriguing renditions of "La Bamba" and "La Cucaracha" add reason for there to be dancing amid all the dialogue Downs encourages. While the unifying thoughts behind it are praiseworthy, the true attraction of Una Sangre is Downs' herself. Hovering somewhere between Celia Cruz and Dinah Washington, Downs' voice is gorgeous and amazing as she easily goes from the bluesy growl of songs like "Mother Jones" and "Paloma Negra," to the fluttering weightlessness of "Yanahuari Nin." Down's proves the lofty thesis of her album title, Una Sangre, by crafting cohesive beauty out of a plethora of style(she even rhymes), sounds and languages. Una Sangre is a wonderful offering.-Christopher Sanders

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great One!
Lila's CD "La Linea" has become one of the "can't-live-without-it-desert-island must-have" disc in my collection. With the arrival of "Una Sangre", I happily have another disc with the same status. The CD opens joyfully with "Viborita". She continues with her political and spiritual messages in the title track and with cuts like "Dignificada", the re-worked "La Cucaracha" and the magical "Flower of Marigold". The band, which I was lucky enough to see recently, is truly international and the music reflects this, from Mexico to Japan to the deep southern blues and gospel notes included the cut "Mother Jones". Great disc! ... Read more

This southwestern super session brings together Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Chicano country stars Freddy Fender and Rick Treviño, Texas rocker Joe Ely, norteño accordion wizard Flaco Jimenez, and Tejano bandleader Ruben Ramos to pay homage to the Texan-Mexican tradition. The music is acoustic and generally string-driven, with guitars and violins recalling early mariachi and dancing accordion lines. There are some great party tunes, but ballads are the rule, and Treviño and Fender both show superb grace in their vocals. Ely turns in a heartfelt version of Woody Guthrie's "Deportee," but almost all the songs are in Spanish (with translations in the booklet). Each features only one or two of the headlining singers and there is none of the crowded feel of some all-star efforts, just a relaxed and swinging exploration of the classic Tejano sound. --Elijah Wald ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An instant classic, quite simply the best in Mexican music.
A rare collaboration featuring David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos, Joe Ely, Freddy Fender, Flaco Jimenez, Ruben Ramos and country star Rick Trevino, each artist contributes their unique vision to create this Mexican masterpiece. The acoustic instruments and enchanting voices take the listener back to the days when music was pure and powerful. Joe Ely's rendition of Woody Guthrie's "Deportees" reminds us of the struggles of migrant workers that we still see decades after this song was written. Hidalgo's "La Sirena" can only be described as pure magic. When combined with the talent of younger artists, Freddy Fender, Ruben Ramos, and Flaco Jimenez truely show us that this musical heritage will continue. After seeing one of two rare club appearances and a late-night television performance I feel very privileged to have experienced such an uncommon event. A portion of the proceeds from this album will go to support the National Council of La Raza.

5-0 out of 5 stars A sweet remembrance
This is the music of my childhood listening to my grandfather and his friends on warm summer evenings play on battered instruments, some as old as they, the music of their youth; cigarette smoke hanging still over the group, a bottle of tequila passing from lip to lip.

Then, in my teenage know-it-all, I sometimes cringed and whinced at the aged men playing "that Mexican Revolution stuff," now I weep at the lost time, hoping to hear, to FEEL that music again. And here it is.

Freddie Fender has never sounded better (I swear I hear my grandfather in his voice), Flaco Jimenez has never played sweeter, Joe Ely never sounded as soulful. The same holds true for Ruben Ramos and Rick Trevino. The men from Los Lobos, David Hidalgo and Cesar Ramos never more beautiful and passionate.

This collection of traditional pieces from South of the border, coupled with original songs from the various Super Seven, will have you tapping your feet, smiling, wondering where you heard that one before and yes, crying.

This collection would make my beloved ancestors holler and sing, and play till the morning comes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Total Enjoyment
Wanting some Fiesta CD's, this will be selected. It is great music, and example of the power of music to soothe and bind people together in trying situations.

I love this music, and will play it often.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece!!
I came upon this work late and I regret that, being a long time fan of Los Lobos. I can't begin to say how wonderful this music is. It covers alot of ground and it is all done so well. If you love Latino music you'll love this. It has made me thirsty for more. I have both LS7 CD's and I suppose I like this one a little more but what I've done is burn a compilation of my favorite songs from both and I play it all the time. Buy this music!!

Singer-songwriter Lila Downs usesthese 15 compositions (both originals and covers) to explore the joysand sorrows experienced by Mexican immigrants who cross the border fora better life only to experience exploitation and racism in thiscountry. A child of a Mixtec Indian mother and Anglo-American father,the talented Downs brings in a fresh perspective from two culturalworlds. She imbues the Mexican cumbia style--which is itself avariation on a Colombian form of dance music integrating Latin, NativeAmerican, and African styles--with blues, jazz, and even a littlehip-hop as pre-Colombian and Mexican percussion nestles comfortably withstrings and electric guitar, piano, and bass. Lila Downs is awide-ranging singer who passionately expresses her melancholic subjectmatter without lapsing into melodrama, and with this album she crossesmusical borders of her own. --Bryan Reesman ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Lila does it again!
I must admit that this CD was a pleasant surprise, since Lila's Arbol de la Vida dealt with the Native-Mexican theme exclusively. La Linea is fresh, sweet, and fun. The musical arrangements are superb. Her voice is raw, yet powerful. I especially love the bonus track, "Quizas, quizas, quizas", since it is an old song my mother used to sing, but Lila gives it a new twist. I highly recommend this CD. Listen to it more than once and you'll see how each song grows on you.

5-0 out of 5 stars WoW !
I got a hold of a pre-release copy of Lila Downs new CD " Borders" and WoW! It has fifteen tracks that takes the listen on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The music is intense; her voice catapults the listen back to an other times, an other place , an other person they may have been. This CD will enhance your writing( the way she coin her words) and enable you to get into different moods: depending on the track you listen to. I am going to buy two more CDs and send it to my relatives tomorrow!

5-0 out of 5 stars To begin is to end to end is to begin...
My friend Maude from DC turned me onto this disc a couple of weeks ago during a brief visit and I was captivated after the first ten bars. Her recommendation is that the cd doesn't do Lila's voice justice after seeing her live. Until I have that experience I won't challenge the point. All I have have is this recorded representation by which to judge. Ms Downs uses her remarkable voice to deliver the most heartfelt and moving performance top to bottom to have graced my ears in quite a while. She covers a variety of topics and genres with originality and power making me mindful of any number of wonderful chanteuses. I will definitely be out in search of more titles (explains why I am here now). I've read people referring to Lila as the modern day incarnation of Frida Kalo(I'm certainly not here to refute that) but within a musical context she may be this age's Joan Baez. Thanks for the tip Maude. Most of all, thank you Lila...

5-0 out of 5 stars A powerful singer and a great band
"Mi Corazón Me Recuerda" is one of my all-time favorite recordings. Haunting lyrics, great arrangement, a commanding vocal performance. My recommendation is that you see Lila Downs in concert, that's what got me to buy her CDs. She has a huge stage presence; her audience loves her. The band is really more of a jazz combo always ready to break out into solos. I love bands that are unique so they are hard to categorize. This band fits squarely in that non-category.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exotic Mexican and indigenous sounds from Lila Downs
OK, folks, listen up! It's been a few hours since I went to see Lila (pron. Lee-la) Downs in concert at San Juan College. Yes, in Farmington, NM(!), and the two months I've waited since I bought the ticket was worth it! Most of the songs was taken from La Linea (The Border), which thematically describes the immigrant experience of Mexicans into the US, and is dedicated to those who were killed trying to enter. I will admit, with the audio footage during the performance of migrant workers and women enslaved in the maquiladoras, I felt my leftist stirrings bubbling. She clearly came with an agenda, but using the language of music to entertain but also educate, standing on a stage and not wagging her finger on a soapbox. Here are the highlights.

"Sale Sobrando" (Good For Nothing) is a song about the indigenous experience, from the time of Cortes to the massacre in Chiapas, and the racism encountered: "your face is dark but you want to be white/but you really like your taco and tortillas." The title is explained in the last three lines: "Tourists and foreigners come here in vain/what do they worry for-human rights?/if justice here is good for nothing?"

She puts in her husky Billie Holliday-like emotion in Cuco Sanchez's "Corazoncito Tirano" (Little Tyrant Heart), whose instrumentation veers towards country. She asks, "whose mouth is erasing/the kisses I gave you, little tyrant heart?"

The mid-paced ballad "La Nina" (The Girl) is dedicated to the women workers, and tells the psychologically debilitating effects of a maquiladora worker, who only gets Sundays off. The song ends on a positive note of hope, that someday, those days will be over: "one day you will be equal to everyone."

"Hanal Weech" (Eat, Armadillo) was performed at the concert and it's an upbeat cumbia sung in Mayan. The spoken interlude, translated in English goes, "You, beautiful woman even though you are very attractive, the day will come when I leave you because you smell like an armadillo. But if you put some perfume on, I'll come back to you." She explained this and it drew laughter. Celso Duarte's violin plays heavily here, and Lila's voice has a comical, child-like tone. One thing that I wonder: what do armadillos smell like?

A Woody Guthrie medley, "Pastures Of Plenty/This Land Is Your Land" is sung in English, and she did this in concert. She does the second song with a jazz-ish melody, something like late 80's Sade, except with a Latin beat. But there is also a rap that questions the definition of being American. "When did you come...long long before the buffalo walked?" or "Say you're American, but what does it mean?"

"El Bracero Fracasado" is a quick mariachi number about someone who made it past the border with nothing but the clothes on his back, and went through hunger and hardship only to get sent back where he has nothing.

The elegiac "Transito" (Transit) is a sad look at someone far from home who works "in this valley of asphalt and lead", where the factory prospers, but not the workers. "Smoke" is about another massacre of people that hasn't stirred human conscience. "Now everyone's waiting and hoping for justice/but will there be goodness when men kill their own?" she asks.

The sad torch song "La Martiana" based on a Zapotec song, is an entreaty to a young girl. Lila briefly recited excerpts of this before singing it, "Little girl, when I die/don't cry over my grave/because if you cry I will haunt you/but if you sing to me, my life/I will always live. I will never die." My favourite song here.

"La Llorona" (Crying Woman) is a melodic harp and guitar ballad and features the many aspects of Lila's hearty voice, soaring high octave, to low and smoky Holliday-style register, to that shuddering with emotion. Another favourite, and also on the Frida soundtrack.

The bonus track is an exotic cover of "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps", or "Quizas Quizas Quizas" in Spanish, most popularly done by Doris Day. Lila sings the verses in her hearty mid-register Spanish, the chorus in a softer register, in English.

Most of the lyrics are printed in both Spanish and English, so that's a big help. In all cases, Lila's able to capture the emotion of the lyrics and music. Her voice soars, rings harshly, and even quivers with emotion. And the Mexican and pre-Columbian instruments enhances this album with an exotic flavour. Gracias, Lila! ... Read more

World musician Lila Downs experienced a career renaissance thanks to her contributions to the 2002 Frida movie and soundtrack . After two well-received solo albums, the Narada label has reissued Downs' dramatic debut album, La Sandunga. The singer released the album independently in 1997, and it still sparkles with the immediacy and passion of a woman completely connected to and excited by her craft. Every song on La Sandunga, including the album's three bonus tracks, flows effortlessly into the next. It's as if the album was recored without pause during one very creative recording session. Downs' Mixtec-Indian and American background is an obvious influence on her work. The album is peppered with lush strings and blaring horns. It's all anchored by Downs' wildly diverse vocal stylings, which even manage to spice up the oft-recorded album closer, "Besame Mucho."--Joey Guerra ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Mixture of indigenous songs, jazz, and varied genres
The second of two Lila Downs CDs I bought just before I went into the auditorium to see her live is a quieter affair, but with as much subgenres from the Mexican and Mixtec music culture that really opened my eyes. Here are the highlights.

The title track is a mournful ode to one's dead mother, with piano and acoustic guitar. According the notes, "La Sandunga" is played in ritual ceremonies, but as a genre, it became a sort of Mexican waltz, a merger of indigenous and European influences.

The quick-paced mariachi-like "Pobre Changuita," with quickly sung vocals, is the forerunner of Mexican country music. Lila does her comical helium-like voice in this one.

The slow and swaying "Naila" is similar to Cuban habanera music. The bongos and guitar add to the Latin rhythm.

In the same tempo, with a touch of slow jazz and bossa nova, are "Tengo Miedo De Quererte" and "Un Poco Mas," both triumphant showcases for her upper register. Both sport the Cuban bolero style, using African rhythms. Paul Cohen, her husband, who was was one of the musicians at the concert, has a notable sax solo here.

The corrido "Ofrenda" is dedicated to Mixtec immigrants who try to get work in the US and die there, something tackled more on La Linea.

Wow, here's the haunting "La Llorona" once again. It's also on her La Linea album, but also on the Frida soundtrack, where it's done by other artists. This was done in the concert, and it was one of the better numbers done. Like the title track, there's a slow waltz influence, with the Spanish guitar giving it the indigenous influence. The legends differ, but they have in common a screaming woman at night. Lila's voice reaches an operatic height at one point.

"Yunu Yucu Ninu" is an a capella song in Mixtec, and praises the trees and mountain of Yucuninu for providing sustenance for humans and animals, and how

The CECAM marching band is used in "Cancion Mixteca", which thematically covers the Mixtec mythical character of the Sun Archer and the constant migration of the Mixtec people.

Things really get hot in the festive "Pinotepa", which also uses the same marching band in the chilena style, brought to Mexico by African slaves who came with Pizzaro, one of the most villainous conquistadors.

What differentiates this from the original 1995 release is the three bonus tracks, originally part of the Trazos song collection. These songs incorporate some jazz piano elements, with a bossa nova backbeat. "Besame Mucho" is a nice relaxing number for one.

The explanation of the songs are a big help, written by Lila herself in both Spanish and English, and some of them tell when certain Latin genres of music were created. The important thing is that all the songs were composed by people living in Oaxaca, where the Mixtecs live.

A mostly mellower collection of songs, most of it sung in Lila's melodic higher register, and incorporating Mexican, Zapotec, and Mixteca cultural elements, many that I'd never even heard of...until now, and light jazz. Is she great, or what?

5-0 out of 5 stars A Quote From Lila's Web Site...
"This Fall, Narada Records will re-issue "La Sandunga", Lila's
first CD recording from 1997. This new re-mastered edition will
include 3 never before released bonus tracks, plus an English
translation of the liner notes written by Lila."

And a personal note (not a review):

I have all of Lila's CDs and I have seen her in concert,
and I even got to talk to her briefly. I love all her albums.
Listen to her sound bites and check her out in the
movie "Frida". ... Read more

Ranchera heartthrob Alejandro Fernandez polishes up his sound on A Corazon Abierto, his first pop album since 2000's Entre Tus Brazos. That effort was marred by Emilio Estefan's bland production and repetitive instrumentation, but Fernandez diversifies on Corazon, enlisting the help of Aureo Baqueiro (Sin Bandera, Aleks Syntek) and Kike Santander, producer of choice for a dazzling roster of artists, including Thalia, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, and David Bisbal. They wrap Fernandez's swoon-inducing voice in lush instrumentation, veering from somber ballads ("Para Vivir," "Me Dedique a Perderte") to galloping uptempo tracks ("Se Va," "Canta Corazon"). Fernandez's mariachi sensibilities have often been muzzled during his pop-flavored outings, but the flamenco-guitar flourishes and blaring horns actually seem to play up his trademark sound and style. It makes for a confident collection that cleverly straddles both genres and makes the most of Fernandez's sexy--and often thrilling--voice. --Joey Guerra ... Read more

With magnetic rhythms, cool grooves, and catchy hooks, the Mexican rock band Maná have conquered fans on both sides of the border. From the wickedly cool opener "Hechicera" to the pulsating "Un Lobo por Tu Amor," the tunes are easy to get into, regardless of whether you know Spanish or not. There's plenty of fun, too, on the rollicking "Tu Tienes Lo Que Quiero" and the zany "Clavado en un Bar," which became the tour anthem during the band's 1998 tour. Also bewitching are the romantic "En el Muelle de San Blas" and the achy love ode "Como Dueles en los Labios." The band is also daring, remembering political prisoners around the world on "Me Voy a Convertir en un Ave." --Ramiro Burr ... Read more

Fantastic CD. I was first introduced to Mana by Revolucion de Amor hits on Chilean radio. I then bought Unplugged, and within a few months bought what is probably my favorite Mana album, Suenos Liquidos. In fact, since I've been back to the US, it has been one of 2 CDs that I've played over and over again in my car (along with La Ley Unplugged).

"Clavado en Un Bar" is guitar heavy and addictive, and "Muelle de San Blas" is spectacular (more upbeat than the later, Unplugged version). "Como dueles en los labios" is probably my third favorite of the tracks, but most are good.

Though the lyrics are often somewhat depressing and speak of hopelessness and loss, the music itself is quite upbeat and very fun. If you understand the lyrics, this paradox makes the music all the more chilling and fascinating (in particular Clavado en un Bar, in my opinion). If not, just enjoy the tunes!

This is my rainy day cd that I always play when I'm down, its raining, or I can't figure out what else to listen to. I love all the songs, especially "Muelle de San Blas". That song holds a special sound that has so much feeling. It feels like sweet sorrow, you don't even have to understand Spanish to feel this. It is a great cd with lots of emotional value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mariachi Los Camperos-Outstanding
Having the pleasure of hearing Mariachi Los Camperos at La Fonda in Los Angeles has to be one of the best experiences for a mariachi lover like me. Not being able to be there everyday, I have Viva El Mariachi to hear them at home. This CD should be a must have of every mariachi aficionado. I love all the songs and the way they perform. It is just too bad that there are no more of their cd's available. I fully recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets
Buying this disc, reading the accompanying booklet and listening to the music and you will become an instant source of knowledge. The outstanding booklet details the career of Nati Cano's Mariachi Los Camperos, from it's inception in Mexico, it's relocation to different cities in the republic and all the way to his eventual settlement in Los Angeles. Besides the music being top notch, by one of the preeminent mariachi groups in the world, the text is a wealth of information about the roots of mariachi(dispels the common belief that the word came about with the French occupation) and the mega growth to today's popularity worldwide that includes numerous festivals , groups and recordings. As part of the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings coming from the Center for Folkloric and Cultural Heritage the disc is a standout A+ winner. The booklet has 32 pages and besides the essays each and every song is explained with biographical information including a decription as to the style, i.e., whether it is a bolero, ranchera, huapango, jalisciense or son and even has technical information on meter timing of the melodies. The music itself is a superb collection of the various styles. The lively set contains some of the most popular mariachi songs recorded including ,"El Gustito(check out a Los Lobos version)," Gema"(made popular by Javier Solis), "La Malaguena"(recorded by everyone from Richie Valens to Paco de Lucia) " and "Paloma Negra"(resounding and resonating from Garibaldi Square and all points on the compass throughout every bar in Mexico). Another great thing about this CD is the variety of singers who interpret the various styles. This creates a disc that has many textures to match the various styles; on one track it may be a woman singing, on another a man in falsetto maybe interpreting a huapango, a deep baritone voice or a sensous treatment to a bolero or it may just be a blending of various vocalists.Nati Cano proves that he is as much a visionary of mariach music as some of his contemporary and more well known giants in the field like Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan. This is an outstanding disc for the serious collector of mariachi recordings or for the newbie. Great music and an informative booklet make for a perfect package for the festive times of your life. This CD should not be missed by people who like mariachi music, buy it, you won't be dissapointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
This is one of my favorite CD's. the arrangements and voices are superb. This CD shows why Los Camperos is one of the premier mariachi's in the world. Listening to "el gusto" and its violin makes you feal like you are really listening to a conjunto huasteco and my personal favorite, "Virgencita de Talpa" is sung and played with such passion. If you ever have a chance to listen to los camperos live, I recomend that you do it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bolio Interloper
This CD simply kicks fanny!!! I like this much better than my Mariachi Vargas CDs!!! Throughout the CD the muscianship is excellent, in particular with the violin playing. The voices are powerful and passionate without being strained, and convey emotion that transcends the language barrier (although I understand quite a bit of the lyrics). Whether you're a casual Mariachi listener or a collector and fan, this belongs in your collection! ... Read more

Amazon.com's Best of 2001

Formed in 1998 as a loose collective of (mostly) Texas musicians with a love for traditional Mexican melodies, Los Super Seven took exactly one week to produce a self-titled debut that was an offhand marvel of norteño tradition and intimacy. Three years later, four of the original members--including David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos--return for Canto, but their musical ambitions have broadened from Tex-Mex house party to pan-Latin musical summit. Boasting guest appearances by Brazilian tropicalismo heavyweight Caetano Veloso, Los Angeles-based Cuban pianist Albert Salas, and Peruvian diva Susana Baca, Canto features some of the old-world romantic charm of Buena Vista Social Club (listen, in particular, to Raul Malo croon the album-opening "Siboney"), but the CD doesn't shy away from the subtler, breathier charms of Veloso or Baca's sophisticated Afro-Latin pop on "Drumi Drumi Mobila." Canto reaches its pinnacle on "Teresa," a Hildalgo-sung gem that mixes the rock experimentalism of Los Lobos with the percussive piano attack of Salas and a complex undertow of polyrhythms. At times like these, Canto sounds both like a logical extension of Ry Cooder's multimedia global juggernaut, and a not-so-subtle reminder that new musical traditions are often carved out by ignoring geographic boundaries. --Keith Moerer ...

4-0 out of 5 stars BVSC meets Los Lobos in Brazil
Buyers take note, this is not "Los Super Seven" as you remember them from the Grammy winner from'98. This is more like "Los Supers" with the addition of such notables as Susanna Baca, Rick Trevino, Ruben Ramos, Caetano Veloso, Raul Malo and NUMEROUS others. Gone is the Tex-Mex flavor of Los Super Seven, replaced by a collection of songs that fill into the world music category with much diversity including Caetano Veloso taking over in Portuguese for one fourth of the album. Susana Baca performs a heartfelt number entitled "Drumi Mobila" which has lullabye folkloric qualities in Spanish? Is this bad? Not really but it is such a departure from the the original Super Seven CD that it is worth taking note before buying. The songs have an old world flavor ala BVSC. IMO the best songs are those that remain closest to the original where Hidalgo, Rosas or Trevino take the musical lead, translation, an extension of Los Lobos/Tex-Mex. The cohesiveness is lacking because of the different musical styles and the result might better be suited for a compilation. It comes across sounding like one of those music from the four corners of the world albums. The music itself is very good, excellent musicians all lending their talents to reflect the diversity of "Canto." Recommended for those fans of world music beyond the southwest.

5-0 out of 5 stars Second Installment is a Smash
Canto, the second offering from Los Super Seven, is different from the debut album, but in a good way. Notably absent from this album is the norteño inspired accordion work of Flaco Jimenez, Canto expands beyond Mexican music and expertly interprets Caribbean and South American rhythms. Raul Malo's vocals on "Siboney" are particularly wonderful as is Rick Treviño's work on "El Que Siembra Su Maiz." The Super 7's tribute to Arlo Guthrie, on "Campesino", is especially warming to anyone who has ever known anyone who toils under the hot sun. Perhaps the best song on this album, after Siboney, is the Cuban standard, "Me Voy Pa'l Pueblo," which reminds me of lazy days on a Caribbean beach.

Many will compare this album to works by the Buena Vista Social Club, which is flattering and true only in that both albums are wonderful. The rhythms and artistry will render the fact that this is a Spanish language album moot. If you have a Susana Baca or Buena Vista inspired album in your collection, then you must purchase this album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Latino Offering Much Diversity
This collection of Latino music and musicians from around globe is certainly in a trajectory away from Los Super Seven, but still in vein of the richness and beauty of this passionate music genre. Especially into "Me Voy Pa'l Pueblo" and "Teresa."

Neat added touch of comments by performers with the words and translation of each cut!

4-0 out of 5 stars charming music, different styles
I was drawn to this CD by the first track, "Siboney", an old standard by Cuban songwriter Ernesto Lecuona, given a beautifully raw and plaintive a capella rendition by Raul Malo. The other songs are delightful in different ways, though they are not all to my taste. Each of the seven artists here seems to have contributed some of his/her own songs, with a minimum of collaboration. Therefore there is a mix of styles and languages. What is uniform is a warmth and love of the music that comes through in each song.

4-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful cd!!
I just saw the cd and decided "to try it out". I love the mix of old and new and the fusions. The guest artists are the best. Susana Baca and Caetano Veloso are my favs, and to have them also on the cd adds a great touch! Definentely worth it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
If you are only going to own one CD of Mariachi music, then do your pocketbook a favor & purchase this CD. Its the best CD put out by the 4th Generation line-up, as it contains the best versions of most of the music interpreted here (La Malaguena, Son de la Negra, etc.,). As a side note, Vargas has issued several CDs since this one that have not made it through the distribution channels in the U.S. or Mexico! One of these albums, Penas-Desenganos y Amores, has the version of "El Cascabel" from the PBS special "Mariachi Spirit of Mexico" It is a real shame/loss if the greatest Mariachi cannot get distributed. You can listen to clips from that CD on the Marichi Vargas website www.mariachivargas.com.mx - if you enjoy it then please join me in sending an e-mail to Amazon customer service to request the CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars A rich Mariachi experience.
Beautiful vocals backed by rich instrumental accompaniment. An authentic Mariachi experience. If I were to have only one CD of Mariachi music, this would be it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally entertaining from the BEST!
In searching for some distinct marchiachi sounds, I decided to go to the source, a Mariachi band, and what better source than the band considered the best in the world, Mariachi Vargas, a tradition embarked 100 years ago. Instrumentally and vocally, the music is a wonderful ensemble of pure variations of traditional Mexican sounds.

The voices are solid, powerful and the selection is quite entertaining! This sounds crisp and clear with every note refined. You will hear various voices, solo and group which brings flavor to lyrics. I only wish a few songs were complete, such as "Las Feria de las Flores"; this one is so vivid, loud, fun, it deserves a complete track. Another one that's sampled is a very old polka style istrumental "Nochecitas Mexican" is so enjoyable hear and it is always danceable music.

If you desire a taste of Mexican classic mariachi music, what better way to acquire that than with the epitome of Mexican music, a mariachi band, the best! This is excellent!....MzRizz

5-0 out of 5 stars Unusually good Mariachi recording
In my opinion this is the best recording by the current (4th Generation) line-up of "El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo." My only criticism is that there's only one "puro" Mariachi (son Jaliciense) tune on the disc, "La Negra." However, it is the very best and most exciting recording of that traditional son I've ever heard, (even better than versions under the direction of Silvestre Vargas;) worth the price of the CD by itself. Overall, this is a really pleasant tour of traditional central Mexico by the most important Mariachi ensemble.

5-0 out of 5 stars Luis Miguel is the master of the love song.
These three discs sum up what is inside the Latin heart and love experience. Want to dance slowly and hold that special someone in your arms? This is the music for you. Most Latinas melt when this music is being played. Don't speak Spanish, not a problem, the message of love is universal as is music. You don't have to speak Spanish to appreciate these songs. There is a song for every imaginable phase of ones love life. An excellent romantic collection. A must buy for anyone who has ever been in love.

5-0 out of 5 stars Magnifico
I've been a fan of Latin(boleros) and French(Piaf, Aznavour, etc.) music since the 60's. Never have I experienced such pleasure in listening as with Luis Miguel. This man inteprets lyrics in such a way as to make them his very own. His blending of smoothness with emotional content is extraordinary. When he sings, I believe every word and feel the impact in the deepest parts of my soul. Whether it be the pain or hope of love, his presentation is so intimate and personal that one feels as if he's telling his own stories. A truly great singer-Viva El Rey!

the music is great however it came with a package and the case was broken and it was not taken care off.
I was dissapointed about the manner in wich it was shipped.
Just thought I would let you guys know to becareful next time you send something.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a must buy purchase for lovers of timeless music
This 3 CD set brings together the 3 smash releases that Luis Miguel released in the "Romance" genre beginning in 1991 through 1997 and for those who have not bought the individual releases, this is a great opportunity to get them all at a much better price than if purchased individually.

I first discovered Luis Miguel with his breakthrough 1990 release titled "20 Años" when I visited Mexico while on vacation and I can't believe that I still play that release so frequently so many years later. It's simply pop at its best so shortly thereafter I decided to give his first stab at Latin American standards a try and all I can say is "WOW." Luis Miguel brought a totally new the passion to timeless masterpieces and managed to make them as if they had been written exclusively for him. His amazing voice is elegantly complemented by the a lush instrumentation that quickly made it one of my favorites. Songs like 'No Me Platiques Mas," "Involvidable," La Puerta," "La Barca," "Usted" and many others make this the strongest of the 3 CDs and easily earns 5 stars.

Although the follow ups, titled "Segundo Romance" and "Mis Romances" are also flawless and Luis Miugel nails them perfectly, the song selection is not as strong as in "Romances;" notwithstanding songs like "El Dia Que Me Quieras" (I love the harmonica towards the end of that song), "Sin Ti" (his voice is on fire and the song as as good as any version I've ever heard!) and "La Media Vuelta" (the guitars and chorus is out of this world) from "Segundo Romance" as well as "Sabor A Mí," "La Gloria Eres Tu," and "Encadenados," from "Mis Romances" makes the other 2 CDs in this collection a must.

As a set I give this 3 CD collection a well-earned 4 star rating (which would have been 5) had the 2nd and 3rd CD matched the brilliance and energy of the 1st. Again, they are all great CDs, but the first is a 5-star masterpiece that brought an entirely new audience to this very talented singer who is not just a flash in the pan.

1-0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY MEDIOCRE!
Luis Miguel has an insignificant, annoying & mousey voice. The arrangements are all sappy, boring & overdone. If you want the real thing, sung by real singers, and performed by real musicians, I definitely recommend Los Tres Ases with a young Marco Antonio Muniz as the lead singer. If you are looking for a Solo Singer's interpretation of these songs, I wholeheartedly recommend Alberto Angel or Pedro Vargas...two velvety tenor voices that have some weight, breadth of technique & resonant voices. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Authenticity lies in style and aesthetics
The authenticity discussion is always interesting and may activate much passion on both sides of the fence.

There is no doubt that Linda Ronstadt has done a lot for Chicano pride and Mexican culture in the United States. We need to give her that. Her pioneering work made a profound impression on much of "mainstream North America". She was able to do just that exactly because she was already famous for her work in the country and other "North American" genres.

So Linda has been an eye-opener for many North Americans after her own discovery of Mexican tradition, and for that she deserves recognition. However, once your eyes HAVE been opened, why should you not want to hear these songs sung by people who sing according to the tradition that created these songs? Clearly, Linda does not have the "feel" of Chavela Vargas, Lola Beltrán or other great Mexican singers. Or even Selena (compare their versions of 'Tú, sólo tú', for instance).

Now Chavela Vargas is considered the most quintessential Mexican singer of them all, although she was born in Costa Rica and came to Mexico as a grown teenager. (Selena, a tejana born in the U.S., did not learn Spanish until she had to because of wanting to sing in this language). The keywoard is style, not origin, and therefore the accusations of racism made by another commentator here on Amazon.com do not apply.

So for those to whom Linda Ronstadt has been an eye-opener: fine, congratulations! Now you should be ready to discover the tradition that Linda discovered - on its own terms. You will find that this tradition is much greater and richer than her.

4-0 out of 5 stars Play the race card why don't you?
I agree with the the American who wrote that Linda Ronstadt's version are not as good as practically any Mexican artist who has performed these same songs. I also agree with him that this does not take anything away from her, but that we need to face the facts that it is hardly the same thing. What he said was anything but racist. He was simply defending things Mexican, and in a very nice way and a very reasonable way. I think this person who claims to be in Mexico City and speak for Mexicans is really neither. He is not in Mexico or he would not make these statements, and he does not speak for us. We do not agree with anything he is saying. I lived and studied in the US, and I appreciate what Linda has done by putting Mexico on the map as far as our music goes. But I also feel, as the previous reviewer suggests, that fans should, once they have heard this music, go out and buy the real thing. Linda certainly sings her heart out, but she has trouble with the rhythm, for instance. She does best when she is singing duets with the singers ffom the mariachi bands, who have this music in their blood. The arrangements, it seems, have been altered to reflect her failings in this department, essentially, and for those who have heard better versions of these songs, that effect is not pleasing at all. I give her credit for her effort, and I applaud what she has done, and basically I like this album, but not as much as I do more authentic recordings. So let us not be deceived by all of the this childish namecalling by what appears to be one gringo trying to masquarade as Mexican in order to level very absurd accusations at another one who is being completely honest and who obviously knows what he is talking about. I believe that if Linda herself were to see this series of comments here, she would very much weigh in on the side of the first reviewer and find these misplaced accusations of racism to be a shameful embarrassment. All of that RIGHT HERE IN MEXICO pander is simply scurrilous. I can tell that person who is saying that is a gringo - anyone could see that - and he is saying things that no Mexican could ever agree with. Let's talk about the merits of this music, and not get sidetracked with this foolishness, please. The album is good, but it should just be a steppingstone better things for those who are introduced to this music by the laudable efforts of Linda. And, again, I would bet my life that she agrees with me on that. Does anyone think that she would have such hubris as to compare herself to Lola? I don't think so.

5-0 out of 5 stars Loving every moment with her
This is only the second album I heard from Linda but so far I am already a fan and can't wait to hear more I will have to go find out where I can go get more Linda.

2-0 out of 5 stars Mas Canciones = More Mediocrity
I applaud Linda's choice to make a difficult cross-over and bring mainstream attention to the genre. However, now that her marketing dollars got your attention, you have the opportunity to buy a better product. Linda is a fine singer, but if we compare her to others who spent their entire careers in this genre then she falls short. Her voice is monotonous...she only has one color and one technique (open with lots of vibrato) & her phrasing is quite poor (in Spanish). Do yourself a favor and buy Lola Beltran, Amalia Mendoza or Hermanas Padilla instead. Further, she cannot even claim to be the best Chicana in the genre...that honor would belong to Alicia Juarez the last wife of Jose Alfredo Jimenez.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great historic songs
This cd and her earlier one are great. Ruben Fuentes arranged it so that says it all. the ony thing I did not like was her accent. but besides that is excellent. I like the liner notes on the earlier one that are not on this one. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound, wonderful traditional classics!
There's no Latin music that will ever compare to mariachi music with its blaring brass, violins and guitars. It remains a source of inspiration, a mood changing fundamental. Here, the music is exceptionally well! I enjoy the traditional classics "Guadalajara", "Tu Y Las Nubes", "El Mariachi", "Carabina" "La Verdolaga".

The cultural style of selections delves into a little bit of Mexico all over. For the money, these 16 tracks offered is well worth it, and better yet, the music SOUNDS GOOD! Conductor Lopez Varanga leads the musicians. No matter the different styles of music that I prefer, Mariachi music will always be number one; I will always come back to it! .....MzRizz

The artists gathered together here hail from nations and cultures noted for the growing and export of coffee. As with this CD's companion release, Music from the Tea Lands, one senses the possibility of lucrative product tie-ins, but part of the proceeds from the album are earmarked for charity and any catchy idea that gets the music out there is a good thing. Like the luscious drink itself, the tunes come in many intensities and flavors, ranging from a light-as-air ditty from Peru, to the more complex vocal stylings of Colombia's Claudia Gomez, to Ricardo Lemvo and Makina Loca's earthy Afro-Cuban Congolese rumba. The album is a lively and fascinating travelogue, making landfall in Cuba, Kenya, Brazil, Uganda, Mexico, Zimbabwe, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Peru. As with many other Putumayo projects, aside from its musical pleasures, this set would make an entertaining and educational experience for younger family members. --Christina Roden ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Coffee never sounded so good
I was tempted by this CD because I am a lifelong coffee addict. And, I love World Music, especially Latin American and African music, which has cross-fertilized each other back and forth since Africans were kidnapped and carried as slaves to the New World up to the Cuban influence in parts of Africa.

My favorite on here is "Maria Lando" by Susana Baca. She is big in Peru, her homeland, and a friend of David Byrne-- but unknown here in the US. What a shame. Her voice is clear and emotional having what the liner notes refer to as "sufferation"--that emotional outpouring of the downtrodden. You cannot listen to this and not be moved.

I also love the Ugandan Samite's "Wasuze Otya?". Samite survived the insanity of the Idi Amin regime in Uganda, ended up as a refugee in Kenya. He combines traditional Ugandan music with other sources such as, of course Jazz. It's wonderful--you can listen to a clip here, along with the Baca cut.

I was somewhat disappointed in the Brazilian "M'Ban Samba." This music is from Bahia, the African-rich north part of Brazil so of course quite different than the sambas and bossa nova of urban Brazil and the Cariocas. You can clearly here the strong African strain in the Bahian Sodre's music, and for that, it is interesting. It just is not my favorite cut on this album.

This is one wonderful CD for just listening or for dinner party background music. It casts such atmosphere, and is easy to listen to, yet not cliche in any way. The liner notes are prolific--there's a small booklet attached to the inside cover, and the cover has attractive artwork. I just love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Premier Blend To Sooth the Senses
I simply adored "Music of the Coffee Lands". I bought this CD simply because I wanted to have something to listen to when I have my morning cup of coffee. The music is so mesmerising. When one listens to this cd, it makes you feel as though you're being swept off into an exotic land. Some of my favorite tracks are: "Maria Lando" by Susana Baca, "Watsuze Otya" by Samite and "Below the Baseline" by Ernest Rangline. This is an excellent cd and it's worth every penny spent. Buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best world music compilataions I've heard
Amazing collection of songs - not one is a throwaway. If you're looking to break into "world music" the Putumayo collections are a great starting point.

5-0 out of 5 stars All Musical Education Should be This Painless
I was walking past an upscale clothing store that was using this album as sonic wallpaper. It stopped me in my tracks. I walked in and demanded the album from the startled saleswoman.

And that was just one track. This is a true sampler album, designed to expand the listener's musical horizons. It succeeds spectacularly. The track that transfixed me was Thomas Mapfumo's "Hanzvadzi." That has led me to purchase every piece of music Mr. Mapfumo has ever recorded, has led me to travel several hundred miles to see him in concert, has led me to appreciate all the varied kinds of Zimbabwean music (try the classical mbira master Dumisani Maraire) and even to appreciate the ongoing troubled history of Zimbabwe.

The sampler would have done a fine job right there, but Susana Baca also sings here. Boy, does she ever. I'd never heard of her: the only South American singer I was familiar with was Astrud Gilberto. After swallowing Ms. Baca whole, I moved on beyond Peru and into other South American music.

So, I've developed a love of the music of two continents, all for the cost of a single CD. The "Coffee Lands" gimmick is mostly just that: the only thing that Susana Baca and Thomas Mapfumo have in common is that they both use notes, but that doesn't matter at all.

Disclaimer: Your experience may differ, but there is not a dud track on the album, and at least one track is going to jump out at you and land in your lap. ... Read more

Innovative and edgy aren't adjectives often associated with the staunchly traditional sounds of ranchera music, but they're perfect to describe No Soy De Nadie, the first effort on Sony Discos from Pepe Aguilar. The transition not only has inspired the singer, it's liberated him to mix a musical blend that's unlike anything in the genre. Carefully produced instrumentals, thoughtful songwriting and layered vocal arrangements give No Soy De Nadie the polished veneer of a pop album. Aguilar's delivery, however, roots the music in something personal and intimate. It makes for an intoxicating blend. "Se Fue De Mi (Aunque Respiro No Vivo)" and "Miedo" wouldn't be out of place on Spanish pop radio, while "Te Casas y Me Olvidas" and "Un Mexicano No Llora" have the gorgeously weary stamp of cantina classics. But it's ultimately Aguilar's confidence in his considerable talent that makes No Soy De Nadie one of the year's most solid and satisfying albums. --Joey Guerra ... Read more

Amazon.com essential recording

Released three months after her murder in 1995, Dreaming of You introduced the Tejano queen to the mainstream pop audience. Four new tunes recorded with producers Keith Thomas and Guy Roche envisioned Selena as a dance-pop diva similar to Janet Jackson or Mariah Carey, but with a Latin twist. Far more arresting are the two classic mariachi numbers and a bilingual duet with David Byrne recorded for the movie Don Juan DeMarco, in which Selena had a bit part. The contrast between her passionate invitation to "come dance with me" and Byrne's nerdy white-guy delivery indicated her wide-open creative potential. The rest of the album consists of remixes of Selena's Latin-pop hits, including a masterful version of "Techno Cumbia" that bring out the hip-hop and reggae flavors in the groove. The tragedy was that such a promising introduction also served as a sad farewell. --Rick Mitchell ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Legacy of a Great Star Of latin music
A few months ago I bought this album and what can I say it's very terrific. I first heard of Selena from my grandmother who loved Selena and I often listened to this album to improve my Spanish and now I know some of Selena's songs in Spanish. Dreaming of you is a wonderful collection of hits from the late Latin Diva. There are three English songs I could fall in love captive heart and i'm getting used to you that were originally supposed to be on Selena's first English album on SBK records that she recorded before her farewell. There is also wherever you are a English version of her Spanish hit Dondequera Que Estes and features Latin pop sensations Barrio Boyzz. Also featured is a new version of Missing My Baby which features Full Force {of Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam fame} God's Child {Baila Commigo} which features Selena dueting with rock singer David Byrne and A boy like that from the West Side Story { the new version} Soundtrack. Last but not least is the Disneyish title track which is simply beautiful. In my eyes Selena would have made it big if she were here but she leaves us with a wonderful collection. Buy it if you can,
IN MEMORY OF SELENA {1971-1995}

5-0 out of 5 stars A sample of all her music styles...
There are a small number of artists who I love enough to go out and buy their CD's as soon as they come out. Selena is one of them, and this is the first CD of hers I bought days after it was released. I was still new to her music, but from the start knew that I loved her!

Dreaming Of You is a small sample of what would've been had she lived and made it big in the English market, (which she would have!)

"I Could Fall In Love," "Captive Heart" & "I'm Getting Used To You" are the original English songs. "God's Child (Baila Conmigo)" & "Wherever You Are (Dondequiera Que Estes)" are duets w/ David Byrne & The Barrio Boyzz. "Missing My Baby" is a re-make of the Entre A Mi Mundo hit (which I prefer more over this version, but both are excellent!) "El Toro Relajo" & "Tu, Solo Tu" are the rancheras, and of course her cumbia hits can be found on "Amor Prohibido," "Techno Cumbia," "Como La Flor," & "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom." All skillfully re-done.

This CD has a good Latin, pop and r&b flavor. It displays Selena's potential. She had a great personality and would've been a huge star!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dulce Angelita
The first time I ever heard of Selena was when I first watched the movie, Selena, and I knew that I wanted to be just like Selena. I love all of her albums, and I know partically ever one of her songs. Dreaming of You is one of my favorite album... so is Momentos Intimos, but my favorite songs from Dreaming of You are Como La Flor, God's Child, Amor Prohibido, Tu Solo Tu, Where ever you are, and Techno Cumbia... you can pobably tell that I have more favorites, which I do. Selena's songs have a sense of beauty in them, which reminds of Aaliyah. Although Selena and Aaliyah arent really in the same genre, when you listen to their songs, you can tell that they were both 2 really beautiful and thoughtful women. Selena and Aaliyah... I love you both unconditinally... RIP...

This album is a bittersweet one. I purchased it shortly after Selena was killed and I've cherished it ever since! DREAMING OF YOU is a powerful tribute to the world's most promising star. Songs "I Could Fall in Love" and "Dreaming of You" sparkle! DREAMING should've won a Grammy award for Song of the Year ("Dreaming of You") and Album of the Year. I love ya, Sel, and miss ya tonz!

By now, Selena's recordings are like familiar friends, dropping in once a year or so to show off a new outfit that feels familiar, only it's prettied up in some new way. Ones offers 19 of the late Tejano diva's biggest hits, including the bittersweet crossover ballads "I Could Fall in Love" and "Dreaming of You." Every song sparkles with Selena's irresistible personality and rich, full-throttle delivery, especially impressive considering she was in her late teens and early 20s when most of these songs were recorded. The new addition here is "Con Tanto Amor," a three-song medley of "Amor Prohibido," "Si Una Vez," and "Como La Flor," that achieves added poignancy as a ballad. Ones also comes packaged with a DVD featuring Selena's complete video collection, from the shoestring-budget "La Carcacha" to the elegant "No Me Queda Mas." --Joey Guerra ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Selena's key cuts remastered...and a DVD bonus!
Selena's most popular tracks get yet another recycling, but in this case EMI LATIN has created the ultimate single-disc overview: all first-rate tracks with no filler! CD-buyers who already have this material may be swayed to purchase this anthology by three factors. First there is the upgraded sound quality ala the recent remastering of many of Selena's recordings. Secondly, there is a very attractive ballad medley CON TANTO AMOR, which combines AMOR PROHIBIDO, SI UNA VEZ, and COMO LA FLOR (all three songs are also heard in their original hit versions here). Lastly is the bonus second disc, a DVD containing thirteen of Selena's videoclips (their first DVD release). It's the ALL MY HITS/TODOS MIS EXITOS set previously issued on VHS, but presented in chronological order and with decent if not exceptional Dolby Digital sound. The videos are variable in quality. However, as an added attraction to this already-recommended collection of Selena's hits, the buyer really gets more than their money's worth. By the way, if you're curious about Selena but have never bought one of her CDs, begin here!

5-0 out of 5 stars Selena lives on with ONES!!
This is by far the best Selena collection that has been released to date. It includes all of Selena's hits including Como La Flor, Amor Prohibido, I Could Fall In Love, and Dreaming Of You. There is also a new medley featuring the songs Amor Prohibido/Si Una Vez/Como La Flor that is awesome, the songs have been mixed into a slower pop ballad. This edition of ONES also includes a DVD that features Selena's videos. Overall I would highly recommend buying this set it is worth having in your music collection.

Though our beloved Selena has been gone 9 years on March 31,
there is not a day goes by her music doesn't touch a new fan.
Thank you to the Quintanilla family for "Con Tanto Amor" found exclusively on "Ones". It's beautiful and touching. Her fans miss her so much. She was an inspirational person with values, morals and TRUE talent...what a concept.
Selena's music is honest...tasteful....and truly a gift from God. Viviras Selena...nuestra angelita.

I enjoyed it & I am happy that it was released.Yes it does include songs that have already been released,as well as a new remix that I enjoyed immensly.I have many of her videos and cd's(all that I can get my hands on),and yes I am a fan that knew nothing about this extrodinary woman and her talent until after she died.I dont even speak spanish,but I love her music and that remarkable voice.So I say keep her music and memory alive!
