Michoacan Sones de Tierra Caliente (1982)

instituto nacional de antropologia e historia, inah 7, MC-0617

I wasn't familiar with this record label, but my friend Doug was. INAH recorded traditional music from all the Mexican states, and this LP is #7 (of 24) in the series. I was familiar with two songs from this LP, "Los Tiradores" and "El Perro," which appear on the excellent Nonesuch Explorer LP The Real Mexico in Music and Song, which is available on CD. This LP, however, is not on CD.

This was a thrift store find (99¢), still sealed (!).

Conjunto "Los Gavilanes" del Palapo: La Negrita

Conjunto "Los Caporales": El Gusta Apatzingereno
