The second song that I'm listening to, "Dame Veneno", sounds very Arabic influenced, as does "El Toro Guapo". Maybe more do, too. I didn't expect to hear accordion in it. I had heard that Mexican music had it, because of the German influence. I don't know if Spain was also influenced with it, by another country, also, or it was already in the music, when Spain invaded Mexico, but just got more infused when Germany invaded. "El Emigrante" sounds nice, like it would be in classic black and white movie. There's one song that I found funny, only because I was able to understand what he was saying, from know certain words, and inferring what the title is. It's "Mi Carro", and he's saying "where is my car", right? A couple songs seem almost operatic. Maybe they are opera songs. The singers are good, and some of the music in them is like in other country's opera music. So, it transcends culture. I like the guitar sound in "El Porompomper". I can also imagine women in long dresses dancing to it. That Nino Bravo reminds me a little of Elvis, from one song that I heard ("Un Beso Y Una Flor"). I'm trying to listen to more, but Spotify is screwing up.
Hello again! I'm glad to hear you like some songs ^^ In fact, yes Spain has had a very important Arabic influence as it used to be mainly conquered by Muslims. However, I'm not 100% sure that's what influenced the Mexican culture. And yeah, some do sound like opera songs, watching the singers perform is very interesting as they get very emotional.
