The latin fringe

S4S8Aq4

Las Potranquitas del Norte  Caliente Records (Columbia)  (1973) .  This is music from northern Mexico called, Norteno.   Norteno music revolves around the accordion, drums and the Baja Sexto (a big acoustic bass guitar) to produce a polka like sound.  Las Potranquitas add the electric guitar and bass.  Their music follows the traditional Notreno polka blueprint, but there are flashes of bubblegum pop and garage rock that poke through all the Oom-pah!.  Listen HERE.
