natanael cano and corridos tumbados

natanael cano is a 19-year-old kid who totally revitalized regional mexican music as a commercial force by merging traditional sounds with hip-hop elements, a style he calls corridos tumbados (trap corridos). reminds me a bit of rosalia's flamenco pop in concept (obv not in the way it sounds). it's a pretty thrilling combo, tho since these songs are story-driven corridos, i'm sure i'm missing a lot about what makes it special as a non-spanish speaker. it helps that nata has a spectacular voice and great taste in guitar licks.

inspired to post the thread by this article about the corrido revival in the l.a. times:

this was the breakout hit:

the bad bunny remix that helped him reach a bigger audience

his songs on his 2020 EP 'trap tumbado' bring in elements of trap music. this is the one that is the least subtle combo of sounds. it's silly, but it kinda works.

this one is a more seamless blend, and it's prob my fav song of his

Nice. Cano sometimes sounds like he’s got that same relaxed flow as Bad Bunny. No wonder Bunny is on a remix.

two weeks pass...

cano dropped his second album of 2021 on 5/28 (dude dropped 4 albums in 2020, he's on a tear) and the opening track "diamantes" is just a wild combination of sounds
