Natanael Cano: The Curse of Mexican music

Influenced by trap and reggaeton, at 18, he started “corridos tumbados,” an invention that has renewed the genre with new musical styles. Today, at 22 years old, he has been able to change the course of Mexican music and achieve it.

The singer started the corridos tumbados movement when he was only 18 years old. The subgenre was developed by artists like Ariel Camacho and Crecer Aleman, two of his inspirations. “Many people tell me: ‘Oh, I started listening to corridos thanks to you.’ When we were children, corridos were not very famous, and people did not recognize them: no one important sang them. My goal was to change that mentality in people of our time. They told us that corridos were looked down upon, and they excluded us. I always wanted to show that corridos are f*****g great,” explains Cano, explaining why he wanted to change Mexican music.

Natanael Cano is a Corridos Kingpin

A first step

The corridos tumbados were born by adapting traditional corridos (storytelling with waltz and polka rhythms) to the current scene, dominated by genres such as rap and reggaetón. The mixture resulted in a subgenre in which the search for pleasure, drug use, and war are described, which also occurs in trap music. All this with the organic sound instruments typical of Mexican music: more wind in some cases (the norteño) and more strings in others (the sierreño). Cano added new lyrics to the most youthful corridos; since he was a child, he began to be able to capture the attention of his audience; changing the lyrics has had great success and being able to make a change in history, letting people know that the genre It’s not a joke, it’s a kind of respect. And he has already become number 1. Happy after seeing the success he was able to achieve. After checking the success he is achieving. World reference lists such as Spotify have realized this, with the unprecedented appearance of several Mexican tremas in their world Top 50.

An artist whose name appears repeatedly in the catalog is Peso Pluma, the most outstanding example of the subgenre. Hassan Kabande (his real name) ensured the success of Mexican music with collaborations with the famous Argentine producer Bizarrap. The BZRP vol.55 music sessions showed more of a Mexican sound than the electronic rhythms the producer is accustomed to. In less than 24 hours, it had more than 20 million views on YouTube. The name of Natanael Cano has been left in the background, which seems to generate more pride in him than he envies. “It gives me pleasure, and I love it. In the end, we are creating music in the same genre. I felt a little bored before. There were no other artists [doing corridos tumbados], only me. Then, these other groups come out with runs and raise the flag, supporting what we wanted them to support. We can’t see anything wrong with that. “We are grateful for everything,” said Natanael Cano.

The boy who walked around school with a guitar playing songs like El Gross by Virlan Garcia filled the iconic Mexico City Auditorium. Along the way, there has been strong criticism for references to drug trafficking, which have repeatedly tarnished the singer’s image. “I was always an artist who did not focus on drug trafficking. That’s why I called them lying corridos. They talk about my personal life and what I’m going through. “I marked that line well from the beginning,” said Cano.

One more for the road

Cana officially started lying down bullfights at the age of 18. Many people gave him credit for that, but as time passed, Cano met many artists for him, and no one could take the genre to another level. They were artists that he admired, who worked and gave their best at the time. Canoe follows the same path; the only difference is that they still need to make an international song.

 

 

 

The music scene in which regional Mexican music is gaining strength has been overshadowed mainly by urban genres such as reggaeton or trap, in addition to pop. This is how Cano made the Change in the Mexican Genre, and the gero became very famous, which has changed the lives of a lot, mainly artists.
