The folk genre always seems to strike a chord in Mexico’s heart. Chava Flores’ jocular anecdotes peppered with our vernacular. Rockdrigo González, who journeyed from Tampico to his doom in Mexico City, also tapped into this vein.
Enter Belafonte Sensacional, who follows this tradition of taking lyrical snapshots of Mexico’s weird and wonderful fauna and wrap them into folk songs about alcohol, punk, drugs and Kerouac.
‘Torreón’, the newest video, finds Belafonte Sensacional yearning the night away. Long distance relationships, strummed into long lost memories of days that will never come back.
Belafonte Sensacional are currently hard at work recording new music (and blowing people off their socks in every live show). You can buy their recent album, Gazapo, at Disco Cuchillo‘s Bandcamp.
