Regional Mexican music has become the music of the world, with unexpected popularity that is sweeping the charts in places as far away as Japan and South Korea.
Performers like Featherweight or Natanael Cano have brought to international fame a genre that has always opened debates in Mexico, for issues ranging from classism to the controversy of organized crime.
That is why, beyond the criticisms and controversies, it is expected to reconcile, because finally it is our music, and that is the reason for the “Arre HSBC” festival, in which the most representative artists of the Mexican regional will be presented in Mexico City, in a two-day celebration that will bring together the “most Mexican” music: norteño, mariachi, cumbias, corridos tumbados, and banda.
