“While the mainstream media’s narrative for Monterrey tells of a formerly safe city ravaged by encroaching drug wars (nearly 300 people were killed there this year), tribal guarachero’s potency and exuberance tells the other story: irrepressible youth culture sweating it out in a healthy scene so hype that they barely have time to realize what’s being created.” – Jace Clayton ‘Siempre y Para Siempre’ from Fader issue 69
This is the short version. My feature on Tribal Guarachero in Monterrey Mexico, originally published in the Fader’s fall 2010 issue, is now available online. Read it here, as accompanied by some of John Francis Peters’ photographs from our trip.
Today we up an exclusive mix of 3BALL MTY from Chico Sonido which includes outtakes from my interview with him. Enjoy!
There’s a long version of this post coming soon…
