Eres un monstruo
Me das miedo
Pera es más grande mi curiosidad
I listen to them, I dance to them and sometimes, I even sing along.
But do you sometimes stop and listen what are you really listening to? What is the real story and history behind that song?
When you dance to them, you make fun of death. You make fun of the current violence and corruption going on in México. It is the Mexican romanticising death.
That is for me the act of dancing to narco corridos: the dance of the death.
Dancing on blood, on the skulls and corpses of those that have died due to these violence.
I almost feel the blood on my feet as I move along.
And despite all these, the songs and the performer still ask La Virgen de Guadalupe or La Santa Muerte por su protección.
La plebada llendo alterada rumbo al gran party del patrón. Chaparrita, yo llevo en caravana empecherada a tomarnos unas vodkas. Con mi compa mal verde y la proteccion de la Virgen de Guadalupe, yo te protejo con mi cuerno de chivo.
The objectification of women in the narco corridos. Seen as two things: another weapon to achieve success in the drug business or just another object with which to pleasure men.
I find it interesting that many women have accepted this paper of mujer cabrona siempre al 100.
Almost a selfish relationship is born as a couple dances to narcocorridos, ignoring the deaths that songs are inspired on.

Hello!! My name is Dulce!! I'm 19 years old and I'm from Jalisco, Mexico but I'm currently living in California, United States. I study Media Studies at University of California, Berkeley. Go Bears!
I love to draw!!! Ever since I was small I had a natural passion for drawing and almost everything that has to do with art. I'm kind of crazy but Im nice ... at least that what I believe
I really love when people try to figure out what my drawings mean or why did I draw what I drew it's really interesting to hear their theories
