El Sonecito

Just found out about this dude, he makes excellent corridos! Sonecito, or Sergio Campos, evokes the music style prohibited by the church and authorities in the 18th century because it, and its cousin the copla, was a folk style that criticized the powerful in its time. Check one of his songs out at El Chamuco!
