This Week's Picks (#22)

While making my way across the the American SouthWest on an epic car journey, it feels appropriate for NP to play a tribute to the slowly approaching Mexican border. Please enjoy this week's pick!

"Cumbia Campanera" - Celso Pina

Pina is a well known Mexican singer and accordionist. This track is from his 2003 album El Canto De Un Rebelde Para Un Rebelde. Pina is known for his cumbia music, though this release features many other styles in a left-leaning, politically-charged album. Cumbia is a Latin American style originating in Colombia that has found wide-spread popularity, including in Mexico.
