The band Los Tigres del Norte return to Guad to fill the Telmex stadium with over 30,000 fans. They are known as the leading voice of the immigrant and are also named the “voice of the pueblo”. They are real musical storytellers. Last year the song "La Granja" (the farm) sparked controversy because the lyrics criticized the Mexican government’s handling of the drug war. Their 1996 song
“El Circo” compared the Mexican political elite to a circus, and was banned from many radio stations. The lead vocalist Hernandez told the LA TIMES “La Granja is a fable. The song speaks of all the problems in Mexico, through a fable with little animals. We wanted to deal with the problems our government has – narcotics trafficking, the violence — what we already know and live. There is nothing to offend anyone, it is simply a representation of what is happening to us. We always sing what the people want to hear, and what the people are living.” Los Tigres has never apologized for their narco-themed songs and instead insist that they are part of a reality. The public decides which songs they like. When Los Tigres were told they were not allowed to play "La Granja" it was okay for they know that old and young Mexicans sing out Los Tigres lyrics whether they like them or not. It’s the same with English lyrics. Sometimes folks don’t know the meaning of the words, but they sing along anyway.
“Concert for two guitars and Orchestra.” Two of Mexico's symphonic guitarists are Israel Vazquez and Maurico Diaz. Beetoven in Guad for Summer 2010 Series. Mucho music talent and diversity in Guad, just 30 minutes away from the Lake. The whimsy graphics that promoted “Los Beatles Sinf√≥nico,” on with a photoshop cover mimicking the Beatles’ 1969 album “Abbey Road,” the songs to be played span all of the Fab Four’s career, including the beloved John Lennon solo song “Imagine” as a no-doubt emotional finale. Everybody has their favorite Beatles style, whether in early hits such as “All My Loving,” in the poignant love ballads such as “Michelle,” “Here, There and Everywhere,” “Something” and “Yesterday,” in the genre-busting hits such as “Penny Lane,” “Here Comes the Sun” and “Eleanor Rigby” or in the hard rocking pieces like “Back in the U.S.S.R.” and “Golden Slumbers.” The group
“Los Beatles Sinf√≥nico,” plays in GUAD summer 2010. Tickets 200 to 350 pesos. Discounts of 50 % for seniors! VIVA LA MEXICO MUSICA - Plenty of good concerts ahead!
