Feliz 2014 Borderland Beat Readers




I am including a music video presented by "Kinto Sol" titled "Mexico Es".  I enjoy the music of this group   very much, the message, the story their songs send.  The video has some great footage flashes of a little bit of everything, from Folkloricos, and violence,  to Frieda Kahlo.  Though the lyrics can be found at this link in Spanish I am adding them in English below though be aware they are computer translated and  far from  perfect, but hopefully good enough to get the point.
 
About Kinto Sol
Kinto Sol is a Latin hip hop group based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The group consists of three brothers: DJ Payback Garcia (Javier Garcia), El Chivo (Eduardo Garcia) and Skribe (Manuel Garcia); originally from Iramuco, Guanajuato, Mexico, they moved to the US at a very young age due to financial struggle. They rap mainly in Spanish, fusing traditional Mexican music with hip hop beats that makes their sound original.
They own their own independent record label, Virus Enterprises LLC, which specializes in Latin hip hop. The group's name is a phonetic spelling of "quinto sol" (fifth sun)  and is taken from an Aztec legend in which the Fifth Sun will be the last one to set in this lifetime. The Aztec's calendar was so sophisticated that even NASA is studying it to this day. The calendar stops at the year 2012 as the myth explains.
The members of Kinto Sol stand out in the hard-core field because they are tattoo-free and rarely use four-letter words in their lyrics. And instead of urban tales of violence, guns and drugs, their songs are about struggle, hope and inspiration.
"We sing about what's really happening with our people, from people that live in the United States, to people in our motherland, Mexico," Garcia said.
"Things are really bad for people in Mexico ,who have little resources," he said. "Many of them depend on foodstuff basics, like flour and corn, the tortilla, and prices keep rising.
"We all come to this country to look for a better life, and I don't think anyone would leave their own land, where they're born, just to leave."
Another song, "Los que Luchamos" ("Those of Us Who Struggle"),  describes the need for solidarity to establish influential power.

Computer Translated Lyrics:
We came to the swallows, the swallows to dismiss this album,
this CD, thanks to all those people who have always supported us,
all those countries that have heard of Kinto Sol a greeting, 
and all my countrymen want to dedicate this to them especially
because I know that many people have migrated from our country, so beautiful,
the economic situation or perhaps,  the violence, how they feel because I'm from there, 
I also I miss, I miss her dearly, Mexico eternal, 
Mexico in my soul ...
CHORUS: Mexico is my birthplace, as foreign to Mexico, Mexico is my land, my Mexico Mexico. 
 My dark brown skin scene Kinto Sol in Mexico's history filled with culture, Mexico needs to calm the soul,
 Mexico's you, do not turn your back on Mexico's Aztec, Maya, Zapotec, 
Mexico's song continues the tradition, Mexico adore you, my people golden, Mexico is my birth country there is only one, Mexico is proud country like yours, Mexico has faith, that I know, Mexico today, the blood that  cried Mexico yesterday, my boss misses,
Mexico Mexico still standing but something hurts her, the mother of Mexico, Mexican Mexico reminds all his countrymen .
CHORUS: Mexico is my birthplace,  Mexico is my land, my Mexico Mexico.
Mexico is the eagle flying upwind watching the snake indicating the foundation, with feeling I remember my country want to visit the grave of my grandfather....
if I die outside to bring me to my roots, as there is no two Mexicos.  It is true, the  first crib, there is only one country that great nation that was born from the cradle, Mexico my land, my illusion My dream : 
The Legend of Cuauhtémoc owns the village, Mexico the child becomes entangled in their flag with pride screaming "I DIE BY MY LAND" 
Many of Mexico heads upstream with its simple culture, its people, songs or Chente José Alfredo.
I miss my homeland ... I miss. 
CHORUS: Mexico is my birthplace,  Mexico is my land, my Mexico Mexico. 
Mexico my childhood my grandfather knowing about suffering, teaching not lose hope.
Mexico pyramid sun calendar Mexico and want the necessary change..., Zapata Mexico is their revolution and history will change the script, Mexico my dream, if cello eagle with all his art that is beautiful must, Mexico is colorful folklore where do not respect any traitor.
Mexico is indigenous, always and all his heroes were brave men, faced with the same claw submit my fly and land was different, Mexico's cactus, corn, beans, tamales, Mexico pa ' l world no equal. CHORUS: Mexico is my birthplace, as foreign to Mexico, Mexico is my land, my Mexico Mexico. 
That is Mexico,  bleeding right now but I know she has endurance, I encourage Mexico.
 COURAGE!

    1. 3:18 just like the boston tea party was against England,by the rich colonials,themes tea party is by rich Americans against the US and in favor of the neo-colonials, and there is plenty evidence that Ronald Reagan was a nazi sympathizers and FBI mole hellbent on getting his personal interests ahead at the expense of the unsuspecting,and Don Francisco,the popular showman with the Pinochet allegiance,and the Mexican cartels working for foreign powers against the Mexican country and its people...

  12. Hit'em up! I believe hip hop or rap died with tupac, but I don't really know the difference,it all seems to me to be a con,exacerbated by too much smoking,by smokers to smokers.
    Too many of the lemmings following the world changing prophets of rap/hip hop get caught with legal weapons used to commit illegal crimes,they get caught with legal drugs,that become circumstantial evidence that under the circumstances were not so legal after all,it was all a con. The world that criminalizes snitching,under penalty of death,after the slightest suspicion, usually from a big snitch himself,deserves no respect from me,snitches I do respect.
    I have not heard this particular song,but l will,and I wish the best to all people of good will.
    If you want,lissen to Lila Downs: Digna se Queda about Digna Ochoa,a woman victim of sicarios, of the government and particular interests...

    1. 9:22 MEXICO is that good and more.
      After ruining the European economies,since the failure of the Barclays bank of england in Hong Kong, all the European failures are looking to be saved by recolonizing America, for exploitation,using Chinese commuist slave labor in the process, and death squads in latinamerica.
      Even Australia,the penal colony,has joined in the importation of slave labor to stick it to its national workforce ,for the benefit of a few billionaires,Australia now enjoys the modern accoutrements of sex slavery, drugs and gangs on an international scale.
      Hell! Even rush limbaugh's big fat ass was caught with contraband viagra about his trips to Republica Dominicana,I wonder about the age and sex of his sex toys,so much for his Christian Republican values,and those of his kangaroo friend, eavesdroper Rupert Murdoch,Them Anglophiles can be so kinky...

  30. Happy New Year to everyone at BB! Ails Lang Syne from Padre Island to Chivis, Havana, Un Vato, Buggs, Badanov, Tijuano, DD, and Siskiyou Kid. May 2014 be as good as 2013 if not better. Mexico's cultural influence transcends beyond its national borders. Mexico's most valuable resource is its people. When allowed to, its people and ethnic kin manifest their talent. The key is knowledge, education, and love.

  32. Gracias por el video Kinto Sol. Chivis gracias por incluir el video en BB. Las letras de los hermanos de Kinto Sol son más poderosas que una bomba nuclear. A la nación Azteca le arrebataron el cambio democrático revolucionario que necesitaba in 1988 y 1994. E.P. D. Luis Donaldo Colosio.

  33. Hey chivas, did you hear that one of the ak47 recovered at the scene of the battle with Macho Prieto was provided to him by Holden thru the fast & furious bs. If any Mexican soldier was killed or shot with that weapon, Mexico should ask for Holdens a$$. IMO
