about

A festival of Banda Regional Music by artists and bands from Sinaloa and other regions of Mexico. This is party music from the heart of the Mexican culture. Brass-based form of traditional Mexican music, these Bands play a wide variety of original songs.

Established in the late 1930s in Sinaloa, a state in northwestern Mexico, banda music exploded in popularity in the late 1990s throughout Mexico. Its roots come from the overlapping of Mexican music with German polka music. At the time, many German-Americans lived in southern Texas. This greatly influenced northern Mexican music. Immigrants from northern Mexico brought the music to the United States. Initially popular in the southwest United States, primarily in Texas, California and Arizona, banda has followed the movement of Mexican immigrants into, and the Midwest United States and the rest of the country. Other notes on the origin of "Banda" music resembling mid 20th century Jazz: Mexican immigrants whom came in contact with Latin-based Jazz of Chicanos or Mexicans born and raised in southern California adopted Jazz-like sounds in banda to further enrich the music type. Bandas play a wide variety of songs, including rancheras, corridos, cumbias, baladas, and boleros. Bandas are most widely known for their rancheras, but they also play modern pop, rock, and cumbias.
A typical banda is made up of brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments. The most notable instrument is the tambora which is a type of bass drum with a head made from animal hide, with a cymbal on top. Bandas were previously called "tamboras", named after this drum. The tambora is played in a strong and embellished manner, which provides the drive for the rest of the band. The percussion section also includes the tarola which is a snare with timbales which would resemble the tom-toms on a regular drumset, cowbells, and cymbals. Banda el Recodo, the most famous banda, features 3 Trumpets, 4 clarinets, 3 valve trombones or slide trombones, 2 Eb alto horns, and 1 sousaphone. Like an orchestra, a banda can be organized into different sections.
Bass: The lowest-pitched part is played by the sousaphone (referred to as a "tuba" in Mexico), accompanied by the tambora, a large bass drum with a cymbal on top.
Harmony: Two Armonias, "charchetas" or "saxores" in Mexico (Eb alto horns), play chords using different rhythms depending on the style.
Tenor: valve trombones or slide trombones play the lower-pitched part of the melody/arrangement.
Alto: Trumpets play the higher-pitched part of the melody/arrangement.
Soprano: Clarinets and sometimes saxophones play as "singing" instruments that may play with the voice.
Voice: Banda el Recodo and Banda Jerez consists of trios, but many bandas also consist of dual and solo singers.
Most banda arrangements feature 3 part harmony and melodic sections which contrast the timbres of the clarinet, trumpet, and valve trombone sections.
Bandas play many different styles including waltzes, cumbias, polkas, marches, foxtrots, rock ballads, rancheras and sones. Historically bandas were village brass bands called on to entertain the town, and would play anything from opera overtures to big band jazz. This tradition continues today in many towns, especially during festivals and celebrations.
Bandas usually have a strong percussion. The percussionists generally provide the accents and do not usually play all the time or keep a 'groove'. Often the percussionists will enter only when the singer is not singing, such as in an instrumental chorus. The groove is mostly provided by the sousaphone (or bass guitar in a few recordings) playing the bass line, and the alto horns playing sharp upbeats. Typically when a banda plays a cumbia, the alto horn players switch to Latin percussion instruments such as maracas, cowbell, congas, bongos and guiro.
Bandas generally contain between 10 and 20 members. They usually have a lead singer and a second voice, and occasionally a third voice. The voice often consists of a duet, but solo singers and trios are also common.
In the late 80's and throughout the 90's many new bandas were so-called "technobandas" or "electrobandas", in which some or all of the horns were replaced by electric instruments. A typical technobanda will substitute sousaphone with electric bass and the two alto horns with a synthesizer and a guitar. The clarinets were frequently replaced with saxophones also. However the bass part is still played in a style imitating a sousaphone, using a Synthesizer or substituting using a double bass or a bass guitar.

GENTLEMEN, I BEG YOUR PARDON
I’M HERE TO INFORM YOU
OF A TRAGEDY IN SAGUAYO
ON THE THIRD OF MAY

WHILE ON HIS HORSE

COMING OUT OF A BAR
ON A CORNER
A GIRL PASSING BY

QUE ME ENCANTAN LAS CHAPARRAS
PORQUE SON HIJAS DE DIOS
COMO SON TAN PEQUENITAS
SE PUEDE TENER DE A DOS

SE ME PUSO A COQUETEAR
UNA DE BAJA ESTATURA
NO’ MAS QUE NO ME ALCANZABA

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

15 YEARS AND 4 MONTHS
I WAS CONDEMNED TO PRISON
FOR 15 YEARS I WAS PRISONER
SUFFERING PAINS BECAUSE OF
YOUR BETRAYAL

THEY SAY I’M A KILLER
BECAUSE I KILLED YOUR LOVER
AND IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER LOVER
I WILL HUNT HIM AND WILL DO
IT AGAIN
DON’T THINK OF LEAVING ME
THREATENING WITH LEAVING ME
BECAUSE I WILL ALSO HUNT YOU DOWN
EVEN IF THE JUDGE GIVES ME 15 YEARS MORE

15 YEARS IN A JAIL
WAS THE SENTENCE THE JUDGE GAVE ME
AND HE ADDED 4 MONTHS MORE
BECAUSE THE JURY REQUESTED IT

ON THE DAY I WAS RELEASED
I WENT LOOKING FOR YOU
BUT IF I HAD FOUND OUT THAT YOU
BELONGED TO SOMEONE ELSE
I WOULD KILL YOU

IF YOU INTEND TO TELL ME
THAT YOU HAVE GONE, NO LONGER THERE
I WILL AGAIN BE A KILLER
EVEN IF THE JUDGE GIVES ME 15 YEARS MORE
Track Name: Banda Sinaloense Azpericueta feat. Ernesto Molina - Un Vil Despreciado
CUANTO DESEO BESAR
ESOS LABIOS DULCES DE TU BOCA
Y MIRARTE EN TUS OJOS OSCUROS
QUE A MI ME PROVOCAN

ACARICIAR TU PELO SEDOSO
Y TU ROSTRO ENTERO
Y ENTRE BESOS DECIRTE AL OIDO
QUE A TI TE QUIERO

PERO AUN ME DOY CUENTA
QUE NUNCA BESARE TU BOCA
NI PODER ACERCARME Y DECIRTE
TE QUIERO JAMAS

SON LOCURAS DE UN VIL DESPRECIADO
QUE DIA Y NOCHE SE PONE A LLORAR
Y HOY EN VEZ DE VIVIR TU RECHAZO
PREFIERE SOñAR

PASA EL TIEMPO Y ME HAGO ILUSIONES
Y SIGO SOñANDO
ME IMAGINO QUE TE ENTREGO EL ALMA
Y TE ESTOY AMANDO
MI LLANTO DE REPENTE TERMINA
Y SIENTO ALEGRIA
Y CONTIGO COMIENZO A VIVIR ESTA FANTASIA

TE TOMO DE LA MANO Y TE ABRAZO
Y BESO TU BOCA
PERO SIEMPRE DESPIERTO VOLVIENDO
A LA REALIDAD

SON LOCURAS DE UN VIL DESPRECIADO
QUE DIA Y NOCHE SE PONE A LLORAR
Y HOY EN VEZ DE VIVIR TU RECHAZO
PREFIERE SOñAR

DEMASIADO ERA EL CORAJE
DESPUES DE TANTO CHANTAJE
Y DE PONERME LOS CUERNOS
ESA GUERA DE SONORA

SALI YO A BUSCARLA
PARA BALASEARLA
IBA YO A MATARLA
A ESA GUERA DE SONORA

AAAY! PERO NO LA MATE
NO LA MATE

PORQUE ESA GUERA
ESPERABA UN HIJO MIO
AY! QUE CARAY!
QUE PRONTO IBA A SER PAPA
Y CON LA GUERA DE SONORA
YO ME TUVE QUE CASAR

Track Name: Banda Sinaloense Azpericueta feat. Xocoyotzin Herrera - Vamonos Pa San Andres
Ya nos va dejando el tren
Ya se va pa’ otro lugar
Morena, vente conmigo
Para podernos casar

Ayer fui a hablar con tu padre
Porque te iba yo a pedir
Pero como soy borracho
No me quiso recibir

Tus padres y tus hermanos
Te me quieren esconder
Al diablo con tu familia
Tu vas a ser mi mujer

No hagas caso a lo que digan
Si me critican a mi
Que borracho y parrandero
Yo te quiero solo a ti

Dan las 6 y dan las 7
Las 8, 9 y las 10
Pues que estamos esperando?
Vamonos pa’ San Andres

Ya nos va dejando el tren
Ya se va pa’ otro lugar
Morena, vente conmigo
Para podernos casar



English Translation:

The train is arriving now
It will continue to another place
Morena, vente conmigo
Para podernos casar



English Translation:

The train is arriving now
It will continue to another place
Girl, come with me
So we can get married

Yesterday I went to talk to your father
To ask for your hand in marriage
But since I’m a drunk
He didn’t want to see me

Your parents and your brothers
Are hiding from me
To the devil with your family
You will be my wife

Don’t listen to what they say
If they criticize me
Despite being a drunk and a partyer
I love only you

The clock strikes 6 and 7
8, 9 and 10
What are we waiting for?
Let’s go to San Andres

The train is arriving now
It will continue to another place
Girl, come with me
So we can get married

Se salió de su corral
Ahi viene ya, te va cornear

Traigo mis botas de charro, compadre
Y mi tejana de lado
Porque voy a manganear
Ese toro cimarrón

Van a soltar ese toro, compadre
El toro ya anda embramado
Alli viene ese toro, alli viene ese toro
Alli viene ese toro, ese toro cimarrón

Ya el jaripeo empezó
Al toro van a soltar
Se salió de su corral
Ahi viene ya, me va cornear

Ese toro cimarrón
