Creative ferment in Tijuana music scene

The music scene in Tijuana is in creative upheaval. This is a 4-minute video about the blend of musical styles occurring in the border city, crossing boundaries between dubstep, punk rock, jazz, cumbia, no wave, norteño, banda, noise and techno. This video is done by Erin Siegal, whose videos I've posted before. Tijuana is indeed coming out of hiberation. Here's a story I did after a trip there early this year.

I don't see where they get the idea this is music...it fits mostly the matachines way of dancing.

as Duke Ellington so famously said "there are 2 types of music: good music and bad music"

Christian Gies

Please, no dubstep. I can never consider that as a music. No offense.
