Editorial Reviews

The corridos in this collection come from the region comprising southern Arizona and northern Sonora, one that was divided politically by the Gadsden Purchase of 1853, but is unified by a Mexican folk culture. These corridos-- the word translates loosely as "ballads" -- are story songs that tell tales of revolution, crime, heroic showdowns, horse races, and disasters in this overlooked part of the world. Heroes and Horses is a slice of life along the Arizona-Sonora border as it has been lived and memorialized in corridos over the course of the 20th century. Rich with the folk traditions of northern Mexico, rarely are the engaging voices of these balladeers accompanied by more than a guitar and an accordion. Tales of triumph and tragedy fill this collection and bring the Arizona-Sonora borderlands to life. This enhanced CD includes 71 minutes of music, extensive notes, photos, and complete lyrics in Spanish and English on the disc.

Los corridos de esta colección vienen de la región del sur de Arizona y del norte de Sonora, una región dividida políticamente por el acuerdo Gadsden Purchase de 1853, pero que está unificada por la cultura popular mexicana. Estos corridos son historias cantadas que cuentan sobre la revolución, el crimen, heroicos encuentros, carreras de caballo y desastres en esta región olvidada del mundo. Heroes and Horses (Héroes y caballos) es una dimensión de la vida a lo largo de la frontera Sonora-México como ha sido vivida y conmemorada en los corridos en el transcurso del siglo XX. Rica en tradiciones populares del norte de México, rara vez las voces cautivantes de estos corridistas son acompañadas con más de una guitarra y un acordeón. Historias de triunfo y tragedia llenan esta colección y traen a la vida las regiones fronterizas entre Arizona y Sonora. Este disco compacto incluye 71 minutos de música, extensas notas, fotos y letras completas en español e inglés.

I purchased this cd to use as part of a college class on the Borderlands. While reviewing it at home, I found the entire family enjoying the music, including my 8 and 10 year olds. It is a nice collection of historic and regional pieces blended with the contemporary.
