As the pioneer behind the corridos tumbados movement, singer Natanael Cano took one of the most popular styles of música Mexicana and made the sound even more popular by fusing it with the modern-day themes of trap music. He maintains a respect for those who came before him, the artists whose songs left a lasting impression on him and on his work. Here, he spotlights a handful of tracks that helped make him who he is.
Ariel Camacho, “El Karma”
“I think that this song was important to me. It was with that song that I decided to play guitar, but a video on YouTube to learn to play the requinto. It all started with that song.”
LEGADO 7, “El Afro”
“I really liked the song, because I drank and smoked pot. That was one of the first motorcycle songs I ever heard, so it was something new for me.“
Miguel y Miguel, “La Botella”
“‘La Botella’ was a song that my father taught me, a song that he sang and knew how to play on the guitar, in fact. I think it’s very important, because it was one of the first songs I heard.”
