City in Mexico Bans Narco Songs

With the recent spate of killings of Narcocorrido singers (as reported here on BB) in the last few weeks, inevitably the issue of banning Narcocorridos surfaced again.   The City Council of Chihuahua City, capitol of the Northern state of Chihuahua, has passed an ordinance banning the performing and distribution of Narcocomidos.  Violators are subject to fines of around $20,000 dollars and up to 36 hours in jail.  

The capital's city council has decided to put the ban into action and stiffen the penalties as they believe narcocorridos promote crime and violence while apologizing for and glorifying organized crime figures.  The council's decision followed a shooting at a narco corrido concert in the nearby city of Parral that reportedly left two dead and one wounded.

In 2011 the state of Chihuahua Legislature approved a statewide ban on narcocorridors but it was never implemented by local municipal authorities.  In 2011 Sonora's Governor Mario López Valdez issued a ban on  Narcocorridos or corridos about crime in bars, pubs, restaurants  and nightclubs.in the state.  Violators would have their liquor licenses canceled or revoked.    

The Federal Supreme Court overturned  Lopez's  ban as being unconstiturional and over-reaching his authority and  it was considered contravening Mexico's Freedom of Expression laws.  

Tijuana city, Baja California state and Nuevo Leon state have all imposed similar bans.

As reported on Borderland  Beat by Buggs, during the Calderon administration  a PAN legislator  tried unsuccessfully to make performing or producing drug ballads punishable with up to three years in prison.


Wikipedia defines narco-corrido as:

"  A narco-corrido (Spanish pronunciation: [narkokoˈriðo], Drug Ballad) is a subgenre of the
Mexican norteño-corrido (northern ballad) music genre, a traditional folk music from northern  Mexico, from which other several genres have evolved. This type of music is heard on both sides of the US–Mexican border. It uses a danceable, accordion-based polka as a rhythmic base. The first corridos that focus on drug smugglers—the narco comes from "narcotics"—have been dated  by Juan Ramírez-Pimienta to the 1930s. Early corridos (non-narco) go back as far to the Mexican Revolution of 1910, telling the stories of revolutionary fighters. Music critics have also compared narcocorrido music to gangster rap.


There have been calls for censorship of corridos associated with drug trafficking or the crime world ever since Los Tigres del Norte hit with “Contrabando y Traición” and “La Banda del Carro Rojo” in the 1970s, but these calls have intensified in recent years.  
"Los Tigres Del Norte 1" by Dwight McCann / Chumash Casino Resort Santa in Ynez, California

InSight Crime reported that Tigres del Norte was banned from playing one of their more popular songs, "La Granja," at a music awards ceremony in Mexico. The video and lyrics are critical of the government's fight against the drug cartels, using a farm as a metaphor for Mexico, and·animals to represent the main actors. The drug gangs are depicted as an angry Rottweiler, and a fox (an apparent jab at former President Vicente Fox) is depicted as starting all the trouble by letting the dog loose, while pigs in a barn -- who may represent Mexico's elite or the US -- are described as happily feasting on corn, only caring about "profits." Meanwhile, a giant wall is built around the farm, keeping the poor farmers from escaping, a metaphor which needs little explanation. 

Is "La Granja" a political critique of Mexican drug policy, as Los Tigres del Norte insist, or is it veiled message of support for the criminal groups that are fighting the government, as the authorities have argued?

 Many other narcocorridos raise similar questions about the line between describing the reality of drug trafficking, and glamorizing or professing support for it.

"The corridos are attempts by Mexican society to come to terms with the world around them, and drug violence is a big part of that world," Mexico's former foreign secretary Jorge Castañeda told the New York Times. "You cannot blame narcocorridos for drug violence. Drug violence is to blame for narcocorridos."

 InSight Crime listed the top 5 of what it considers the most notorious and controversial narco-corridors;

1) Angel Gonzalez, "Contrabando y Traicion">

   

Often described as the first narcocorrido, the song was popularized when Los Tigres del Norte recorded a version in 1974. The lyrics tell the story of a woman, Carmelia, who smuggles drugs into the US and then kills her lover. Gonzalez has said that Carmelia is fictional, which has not prevented some women from claiming to be the original inspiration. As the genre developed, many narcocorridos began paying homage to real life traffickers. (See video, below).

2) Tucanes de Tijuana, "El Mas Bravo de los Bravos"

 

A popular young band, the Tucanes de Tijuana recorded several songs that praised Raydel Rosalio Lopez Uriarte, alias "Muletas," the alleged second-in-command of a faction of the Tijuana Cartel before his arrest in 2010. "El Mas Bravo de los Bravos" (The Toughest of the Tough) is just one of them. The group also wrote a song about Lopez's boss, Teodoro Garcia Simental, which has only been released online. During a Tijuana concert in August 2010, the group's frontman stated, "My regards to El Teo and his partner Muletas. Long live the mob!" The incident led Tijuana police chief Julian Leyzaola to ban the group from playing in the city.


3) Valentin Elizade, "A Mis Enemigos"  

Elizade was killed in 2006 when gunmen ambushed him after a concert in Reynosa. A popular conspiracy theory behind his death involves "A Mis Enemigos" (To My Enemies), which some have interpreted as a challenge to the Zetas, although they are not named in the song.

4) Gerardo Ortiz, "Los Duros de Colombia"  

 With the rise of social networking sites like Myspace and YouTube, narcocorridos steadily gained popularity outside of Mexico's northern border states. Ortiz's song, an ode to Pablo Escobar of the Medellin Cartel and the Cali-based Rodriguez brothers, was one of the earliest signs that the genre had gained an international reach. Ortiz later survived an assassination attempt in 2011.


5) Oscar Ovidio, "El Corrido de Juan Ortiz"

 

  Guatemalan singer Oscar Ovidio composed this song about the exploits of one of the country's most notorious drug traffickers, alias "Juan Chamale." In the late 2000s, as Mexican traffickers steadily gained a foothold in Central America, the narcocorrido was another export that appeared to follow them.


A brief history of early attempts at censoring narco-corridors from the book Narcocorrido: A Journey into the Music of Drugs, Guns, and Guerrillas, by Elijah Wald.

1998:
Chihuahua. The state’s human rights representative calls for a ban on radio play of narcocorridos, but without any success.  The Chamber of the Radio and Television Industry (CIRT, proposes an agreement “like those in Sinaloa and Baja California,” in which radio broadcasters would voluntarily cease playing narco songs


2001:
Sinaloa, 3/2. The state’s CIRT announces a “voluntary” ban on broadcast of narcocorridos.

 Sinaloa, 3/11. Citing the successful censorship of narcocorridos, the State Prosecutor announces plans to prohibit the performance of such songs at live concerts.

Tijuana, BC, 3/14. PRD proposes regulations controlling the broadcast of narcocorridos on radio and television.

 Tijuana, 3/15. Representatives of the radio programmers agree that it might be good to censor this music if it is genuinely harming young people. They note, however, that songs like Los Tucanes’ “Mis Tres Animales” talk about drugs only in coded language, and thus can only affect people who already are familiar enough with the drug scene to understand this code.

 National, 3/22. Senator Yolanda Gonzalez Hernandez of the PRI argues, citing existing laws against encouraging criminal acts, she calls for “restrictions on reproduction of certain works, though not impeding their creation.” (Hence, she argues that this is not censorship, since people are welcome to write the songs or make the records. She just does not want them to be allowed on the airwaves.)  



Coahuila and Tamaulipas, May. In Saltillo, Coahuila, the deputies of the Local Congress unanimously approved a statement to eliminate narcocorridos from the radio in Coahuila. Deputy Elida Bautista Castañón said, “It is known that man tends to imitate what he sees and hears, so it is logical that a person will act violently if all day long he is seeing scenes of crimes and listening to the adventures of a drug trafficker whose aim is to illegally enrich himself.”(DD note; Emphasis added is mine.  Proof that legislators don't have to pass a IQ test to hold office)


, in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, members of the city’s Cultural Commision asked the City Hall to take the relevant action to prohibit narcocorridos in the radio and television stations.

 Coahuila, 6/20. The state congress calls for measures like those in force in Sinaloa and Baja California.

National, 11/7. Roque Chávez López, president of the Consulting Council of the CIRT declares that "The radio broadcasters of the country want to say no to everything that speaks of violence. 

National, 12/5. Senator Javier Corral, Senator from Chihuahua and head of the Commission of Comunication and Transport, calls for national restrictions on narcocorridos.

DD; Thankfully all the legislators went home for Christmas after that.  .But all that happened just  in the year 2001,
If you want to see what happened in latter years click on the link to Alijah Wald at the start of this history.  

I agree with Walds statement that:


"While both drugs and crime cause real problems for society at large, and for many individuals, I am extremely dubious about the purposes of such censorship. It seems to me to be a attempt by politicians to get publicity as defenders of public morals and safety without doing any of the difficult things that would be necessary to genuinely deal with the problems, such as providing poor people with other ways to improve their economic situation."



I am not a fan of narco-corridors, but I think attempts at censorship, which is a form of prohibition, will be just as unsuccessful as the prohibition on drugs has been.  If you think they have not become part of the culture both in Mexico and to a fast growing extent in the US, just go to YouTube and do a search "narco-corridors" and you will get 217,000 results which  suggests Mexico has no hope of pulling the plug on the music.


As one college student said that when he heard the news on the radio that the Chihuaha City Council had approved a ban on narco-corridors he "thought it was a joke".

      Stupid idiots if they do it is because they have good reasons for it. Narco corridos promotes more violence, glorifies bad mfs.

Unlike mexica.

    13. He had no choice! Who do you think owns the palenque in raynosa???? Osiel Cardenas and his crew. He was damned if he did sing it or not. Sinaloa told him he had to sing it if not it was him or a family member. Guess what??? He would have been better off fleeing to the USA and making his home there. It's not for anything but Larry Hernandez and Gerardo Ortiz are alive for one simple reason. Thru lay there head in the USA and only travel to Mexico when the occasion calls for it.

    2. So apparently you are asked not to print in caps anymore or you will not be published. So you can keep doing it and no one will get your message. Apparently Chihuahua where I live, has also not allowing people to not sing corridos. There are reasons why people have regulations and rules. Like BB, Chihuahua has it's reasons. One of the reasons is people being shot at these events while going after the singer or band. Young children are listening to this and getting the wrong message. Like you said it is about the poor and the last thing they need it this subliminal trash going through the mines of young poor and uneducated children and young men, and making it sound like be a thug is the only option. You have a choice to quit typing in caps. The singers have a choice to quit spewing their trash if they want to sing in Chihuahua. This music does effect young people and many go to their deaths because of it. Just like the propaganda and recruiting videos spilled by Isis that leads many poor and uneducated young men to their deaths as well as others that they kill.

And making statements that our freedoms are leading to divorce, homosexuality and causing drug addicts. Glorifying violence or warriors of the narco culture is nothing new. There has always been songs about the roughest and toughest fighters and their exploits in every culture. Our American forefathers fought and died for us to have constitutional rights. In my opinion these compatriots didn't die in vain for those right, but I Mexico can't say the same.

  14. Some of you twist the term freedom of speech. You cannot say anything you want, at anytime you feel like it. A teacher would be banned from saying you little cok suking bithches need to listen and learn. You cannot go into a movie theater and yell fire. You cannot pull a person over, show them a fake badge and tell them you are a cop. Freedom of speech has it's boundaries. Rap music and corrido's cause death and people to commit crimes, no doubt about it. Watch the History Channel documentaries Black drug dealers in the USA talking about the women and money they make selling drugs. Speech can make persuade uneducated and poor people to make bad decisions. The problem is that most of what they glean from some of the free speech is that is effecting innocent people and giving young people the wrong message. People are dying because of peoples free speech.

  15. You want to ban alterados and pesados, fine. What the whole world should have banned a long time ago was rap. That toxic noise is the real culprit. Most corridos are just good music. Narcorridos are a bi-product of rap culture influence on cholo and frontera culture. We used to listen to oldies, tejano, and rancheras. Look at all the rap artists writing for the Golfos and Zs. That isn't Latino culture. That's African American culture making our culture it's bitch, just like they do the guerros. So I don't want to hear from those of you who hate Latino music, and just come to comment on BB because you're against Mexico.

  17. Narco Corridos now a days are just pure advertisement. No truth behind any of it.. it's all bullshit. Real CORRIDOS sang about mexican hero's , such as Emiliano Zapata ,pancho villa and benito Juarez. . Not this cocksuckers who kill , rape, and slaughter innocent people..They should be banned in the states also. I agree so should some rap.

  19. It's about time. Hopefully the rest of Mexico will follow in suit. This is not about freedom of speech as much as it is about cartels wanting praise for devious acts. I am reading people have a choice to listen to what they want. Do they really? If you are cruising in a neighborhood listening to songs praising CDS and you pass a group of Zetas, are you safe. This is about eliminating senseless murders. After all why fight a drug war yet allow music praising it. These songs are no better than an ISIS video promoting and recruiting. Giving the impression this lifestyle is grand. I praise this location for taking a stance that should have taken place long ago. Safety of many is far more important than the fame of one individual.

    1. yooooo maine. it sounds crazy but is supply and demand.....Americans is the biggest hypocrisy in the planet . invade countries got oil....turn nations into drug producers..why????because they are willing to pay for it...cocaine $600 and ounce...gallon of gasoline $3.75. Iphone 6 made by slaves in china $600. Mexicans cutting their lawns $75. The are the modern day Romans.....eventually they would collapse just like other empires before them.

    2. The great county of the United States of America is far from falling apart. No Roman Empire here and never will be. No one is ever happy with us because they want it all or nothing. Help us, don't help us, leave us alone, give us money, leave, why did you abandon us come back and now leave again. It's completely ridiculous. The US is the US not Canada, not Mexico and it damn sure ain't a weak ass European country. With that said love us or hate us we will still be relevant until the world comes to an end. Our freedoms are why millions of foreigners come to our country every year to work and attend school. There is no reason to put us down or our way of life because it's not going change anything. Haters gonna hate but what's new.

    4. @ 532. Is easy to say that every human being wants to come to America, why do you think they do???is because your nation !!! yes your capitalism goverment created a system that makes eternal 3rd world nations. I'm sure your in denial and dont care because you inside the American roman empire, harvesting from others misery....remember 911 did it hurt???if it did thats how it feels to be suckered punched and victimize....again is not your fault!! but your way of life is wrong....again is not freedom is capitalism , I'm hoping Russia strikes you so you can see how it feels to fight against some one your size.....again denial from your fat America part and is not hate is frustrating to be at your american mercy , you are playing god with other nations....but your time will come a collapse from the inside out....changing demographics by 2060 mostly Hispanic and blacks......

    5. 8:28 there is no nation strong enough to strike us so I don't see that happening. We all know the history of what happened when a nation or group struck us. Remember WWII and 911? What happened? Those countries or groups bit off more than could chew and got what they deserved. If Russia wants to really come after our country it will affect all of North America so if we suffer all countries in the Western Hemisphere will suffer. If it's god's will then it will come to pass.

  22. Corridos are songs about people who are too stupid or lazy to work so they resort to a life of crime and violence to make a short living. Corridos are preachings promoting violence and destruction for the devil.

    1. En serio? Corridos come from the old time ago. In a different epoch. Emiliano Zapata and Fransisco Villa were not "people who are too stupid or lazy to work". Ni Vicoriano Huerta either. El corrido came from Spain hundreds of years ago. Go listen to Los Allegres del Teran and then try to continue to make generalizations about el corrido. They were campesinos and hard work ranchers, who also sang some of the best corridos ever. The narco hijacked the corrido, but that doesn't make the form of art bad..

    2. Corridos can be an old song / legend about a guy or gal that made great cabrito. or tacos. But your correct about how some people resort to criminality ( some because of economics in Mexico does not help any either) not that it is an excuse to resort to crime or glorify a life of crime. It appears what a majority of the Mexican populace wants to hear and replicate.

    4. @ 1:15 - You should follow your own advice. The only thing that's "obvious" here is you lack of respect. When I hear a loose mouth toward perfect strangers, I hear a dead man talking.

    2. Better yet, let's just ban dumb ass equivocating demagogues who miss the whole point, misquote, selectively generalize, and ridicule. We're not talking about getting rid of forms of artistic expression, but we're definitely standing up against cheerleader 'musicians' whose capacity serves only to promote and glorify specific cartels and their members. All that these salesmen are is a mouthpiece for scum who terrorize innocents and promote beheadings and dismemberments. So standing up to them is called courage not conformity, and to insinuate otherwise is called cowardice.
