Music Mondays: Cancion Mixteca

Harry Dean Stanton

“Harry Dean Stanton and his band perform “Cancion Mixteca” (“Paris, Texas“) @ Philip Dane’s Cigar Lounge, Beverly Hills. This clip appeared in the episode titled “The Roots of Everything” (History of the Blues) of the ABC series “Access All Areas” and went to air April 6, 1997.”

Lila Downs

“The CECAM marching band is used in “Cancion Mixteca”, which thematically covers the Mixtec mythical character of the Sun Archer and the constant migration of the Mixtec people.”

The Chieftains

“Featuring Los Tigres Del Norte, here’s the official music video for “Cancion Mixteca,” which appears on the latest album from the Chieftains, San Patricio.”

Ian Picco

“My favorite Mexican Ranchera song. It is a melancholy tune about homesickness, originally written by José López Alavéz, who wrote the song about his longing for his home in Oaxaca.
