“Something went wonderfully awry when brass-band oom-pah arrived in the western Mexican state of Sinaloa.  Playing instruments first imported by German merchants more than a century ago, the Sinaloans exaggerated everything: the clarinets played higher, the trombones wiggled their notes more, the drumrolls started later and entered with a disruptive flourish…[This CD] collects the first recordings of bandas, which weren’t made until the 1950s.  By then all the familiar ingredients were in place, and little has changed in the ways bandas laugh and lurch through their songs.”
