Los Cenzontles del Monte are a beloved fixture in the central plaza of Tehuacán, Puebla, where they perform classic rancheras and corridos for the public on the street in their distinctive close harmony. The group performed a concert at the university where they explained their approach to traditional Mexican music and we provided recording services as they had no online presence of their work. This collaboration was part of a larger project to document and archive the music of the Tehuacán valley. View the playlist below.
