Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 134 mm. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. No existe tradiciOn mAs mexicana que la de los corridos, las herOicas baladas que celebran a los de abajo -- a los fugitivos y pistoleros. Al igual que las baladas de Robin Hood o de Jesse James, los corridos han sido para los pobres una manera de enaltecer a sus hEroes. Los corridos siguen, pero sus hEroes han cambiado: ahora son cElebres los narcotraficantes. Elijah Wald cuenta la fascinante historia de esta nueva versiOn de una vieja tradiciOn: la de los narcocorridos. Traza el desarrollo de los corridos desde sus orIgenes en el indOmito Oeste hasta su mAs reciente encarnaciOn en la costa del mar PacIfico, la cuna del trAfico de drogas mexicano. Sigue su expansiOn hasta Los Angeles, donde los corridos son la voz de la juventud actual de los barrios latinos, y hasta los estados de MichoacAn y Guerrero, donde canciones sobre narcopistoleros coinciden con baladas sobre los guerrilleros en las montaNas. Wald viaja a la Ciudad de MExico para encontrarse con el juglar viajero de la rebeliOn zapatista, y continUa hasta Cuernavaca para encontrarse con Teodoro Bello, el genio iletrado que se ha convertido en el compositor de mayor Exito en la historia de MExico. Discursivo, vIvido y perspicaz, Narcocorridos descubre una tradiciOn musical llena de vitalidad mostrando de manera fascinante el lugar que ocupa el narcotrAfico en la cultura mexicana.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Narcocorrido: A Journey into the Music of Drugs, Guns, and Guerrillas, Elijah Wald, In the first full-length exploration of the contemporary and controversial Mexican corrido, award-winning author Elijah Wald blends a travel narrative with his search for the roots of this genre -- a modern outlaw music that fuses the sensibilities of medieval ballads with the edgy grit of gangsta rap.From international superstars to rural singers documenting their local current events in the regions dominated by guerilla war, Wald visited these songwriters in their homes, exploring the heartland of the Mexican drug traffic and traveling to urban centers such as Los Angeles and Mexico City. The corrido genre is famous for its hard-bitten songs of drug traffickers and gunfights, and also functions as a sort of musical newspaper, singing of government corruption, the lives of immigrants in the United States, and the battles of the Zapatista rebellion in Chiapas. Though largely unknown to English speakers, corridos top the Latin charts and dominate radio playlists both in the United States and points south. Wald provides in-depth looks at the songwriters who have transformed groups like the popular Tigres del Norte into enduring superstars, as well as the younger artists who are carrying the corrido into the twenty-first century. In searching for the poetry and social protest behind the gaudy lyrics of powerful drug lords, Wald shows how popular music can remain the voice of a people, even in this modern world of globalization, electronic media, and gangsters who ship cocaine in 747s.
