The Bosses

Hispanic Festival 2014-09-28 11

The caption is a loose translation of Los Patrones, the name of the Mexican band I saw at the Hispanic Festival. If you listen carefully, it's hard not to notice that most Mexican popular music has the same 2/4 oom-pah rhythm as polka. No trouble distinguishing the languages or costumes, though.

No Mexican bands in my area, although we have musicians from all over the world.
