Norteño Machín

Even when the subject strays into heartbreak, there’s something infectious about norteño—a sense of pride, of strength, of not taking the hits so hard that you stop having fun. And while the sound has modernized somewhat, most current norteño still feels like folk music at its core: Real people singing about real life. Here’s a playlist collecting the best in current norteño. Our editors update selections every week, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
