Born and raised on the Arizona-Mexico border, band leader Sergio Mendoza grew up listening to music from both sides of the wall which all right-thinking people must hope Trump never gets to build.
Cumbia, mambo, rancheras and mariachi mixed with rock’n’roll and country were all part of his musical upbringing. In his youth he played in indie-rock bands, including Calexico. But he returned to his south-of-the-border roots in 2012 when he recorded the album Mambo Mexicano.
Since then he’s continued mining Mexican tradition for his inspiration, most recently on 2016’s expansive ¡Vamos A Guarachar! , which brilliantly captured the explosive nature of his band’s live performances.http://www.orkestamendoza.com
