Narco Corrido Ban in Chihuahua


The Mayor Adam Marco Quezada said that city hall will deny any permit for musicians of any group who performs music of the genre narco-corrido in Chihuahua.

"I think the narco-corridos do not contribute to the culture of children and we will prevent any of these groups who play this kind of music from performing in Chihuahua" he said.

He said the town clerk has been ordered to deny permission to groups playing this music starting from today.

He said that these are not the right times to applaud crime or celebrate criminals because people are living in a very difficult and complicated time when young people should have other choices in life.

He added that the choice to use drugs should not be presented as simply a choice of lifestyle, "because people think that drug trafficking is a way to be successful in life but they are wrong," he said.

The narcocorrido is a sub-genre belonging to the norteña music, which is heard mainly in the northern states of Mexico, Southwestern states of the US and also in Colombia. In Mexico this music is mainly interpreted by musicians from the north of Mexico and in the United States by Hispanics from Latin American communities.

This has been the recent trend of the traditional Mexican corrido, and primarily attempts to promote and celebrate famous figures, people and events related to drug trafficking.

In 2010 the narcocorridos dominate in popularity in the states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua, the two states most affected by drug trafficking, and the most popular contemporary singers are: Luis Silvestre, Los Nuevos Elegantes, Los Buitres de Culiacán, El Komander, Erik Estrada, Arley Perez, Grupo Escolta de Guerra, Gerardo Ortiz, Goyo Gastelum, Alfredito Olivas, Calibre 50, Enigma Norteño, Grupo Cartel, Grupo Alto Impacto, Grupo Sicilia, Grupo Voz de Mando, Jorge Santa Cruz, Roberto Tapia, Titanes de Durango, Canelos de Durango, among others.

  3. Good Move, the battle for hearts,minds and souls, is won by PR media. Mexicos young must not identify with narcos, its tough for ignorant kids to not seek a narco career. These kids need options and need to fear the law, both can be accomplished thru the media,also the empowerment of the millions of working law abiding people of Mexico,inflmed into action thru the media. What if the reality of the Narco life was exposed,not the hype THE REALITY. Narco Corridos --about running,hiding,killing,being killed,being hunted by law and other gangs,the lies the danger, having no life, no rest, who is going to kill me,who must I kill,who is plotting against me, GREAT LIFE

  6. Very well reasoned argument, Mayor. The scumbags promoting this filthy lifestyle have their hands covered with innocent blood. Not only should this trashy music be banned, the promoters of this culture should be rounded up and incarcerated, they make absolutely no contribution to the betterment of Mexican society.

  8. This music is SHIT, for lack of a "better" word. The poor find themselves struggling to put food on the table...Then they hear this shitty music CLAIMING how good it is to be a NARCO CHINGON. What do you think is gonna happen? First dickhead that comes around claiming to be a "COMANDANTE" of a cartel cell persuades them to join and they're in! In for KILLING, BEHEADING, RAPE, ect...There is no HOPE for Mexico in their lyrics. Only sick minds, cartel members and cartel WANNABES find EUPHORIA in this piece of shit "ART-FORM"

  9. Look at them some of these "Artists/Cheerleaders" of death PLUCK their eye brows! Real MACHO and GANGSTA huh? Wearing TIGHT JEANS and Ed Hardy shirts really makes these FAGS look TOUGH! The other fat-asses are so big they couldn't run from a well trained soldier much less have enough brain cells to figure out they have played a MAJOR role in Mexico's Nightmare...When will these Cheerleaders get together and have one of their "Spectacles" and donate the proceeds to the Family's that have suffered from their RETARDED BEHAVIOR?

  10. the only thing this ban will do, is make it more popular. think about it kids and young people will naturally be more curious and gravitate more towards the forbidden. besides we shouldn't blame the music for the government's failures. the drug cartels didn't just appear overnight, the PRI and other parties worked with them, and now their Frankenstein is out of control. music is the least of mexico's problems.

  13. This violates freedom of speech. don't get me wrong I think the music is horrible to society and celebrating narcos is just so wrong. But I don't believe that taking citizens rights will solve anything. I don't think this senseless war on drugs will solve anything. People wouldn't resort to drugs or violence as a source of income if there were decent jobs. the only problem in Mexico is the government and they're century long coruption. You mean to tell me that a country rich in oil, minerals, agriculture, natural beauty, hundreds of tourism spots is poor. How is that even possible? people need to wake up and start looking at the root of the problem

  17. dude its music .... freedom of speech these singers sing about that and interpret that cause thats how they make money , everyone wants to know what drug dealers are up to and corridos is like another way of news plus like it or not mexico is on the border with the us, the druggiest country of them all , if the demand is soo high, the supply is gunna make its way their cause of the money. Where in a reccesion and in a country where their isnt alot of jobs and opportunity people whor smart beacuse smugglers arent dumb people they have intelligence agencies like the big goverment agencies due they find way to move stuff from countries and have soldiers watching their every move so they wont get captured. These people would benefit to our society if they got the chance to do something else but coming from la sierra of mexico or the high mountains with no experince or training for anything in the city ...well rounded smart ppl get into these types of organizations

  18. The Mayor should be more concerned in WORKING to provide more health, jobs, security, running water, sewers, better schools, defending peoples's rights, etc. But it's easier to pin everything in some popular music genre, right? Don't get me wrong: I think some of the actual corridos are real garbage, but.... WHO draws the line in free-speech? Me? You? The Government? Maybe (hopefully) you, who read this, never lived under a dictatorship, with secret police, censorship, people disapearing during the night, etc. I have lived like that. And you want to know something? THEY had a very nice list of forbidden songs too. It starts like that.
