Well…. musicians do travel around the world stopping in different places sometimes just for a day or two and no having the time to explore them. I can speak for myself as well!! so many times I wanted/wished to stay ¬†longer in some beautiful places around the world . As musician I obviously look for music shops, venues, live music and ¬†what ¬†the local ¬†music also is and what styles.

Well I am in Mexico this time not for gigs but as a visitor and I am seeing how different the culture of music is. How important  is the music  here ? and at what  level of business are Mexicans taking it?

I can immediately see that in the western country we are much more focused on “how many records is my product going to sell” and all the many barriers we have to surpass. Music here is more for personal fun kept at a “popular” and “traditional” level although there are singers and bands more or less popular in the whole country ( and its a big country!! ) that we never hear or ever know. English and American big selling artists are well known here certainly but Mexicans also keep their traditional popular music preserved. Here are some pics of Hermosillo, Sonora
