Cardenales de Nuevo León Essentials

With a storied career dating back to the early '80s, Cardenales de Nuevo León have cemented their legacy in the pantheon of norteño music with a songbook as diverse as it is quotable. Under the leadership of Césareo Sánchez, the legends known as "la fortaleza norteña" (the northern fortress) have expanded the borders of norteño's accordion and bass guitar framework with forays into corridos, boleros, and cumbia. "Compré una Cantina" is one of norteño's defining heartbreak classics, while “Para Olvidarme de Tí” and “Vestido Blanco” bring boozy catharsis to the dance floor in the guise of slinky cumbia arrangements.
