one of the best shows I think I’ve ever seen- New York Observer, USA
In a nutshell:
MORRISSEY GETS A MEX-OVER •
SWARTHY HAIR, MARIACHI TROUSERS AND BRASS •
MEXICAN LOVE SONG TO ALT-POP
Calling all fans of Moz, mariachi and mind-blowing mash-ups. Mexrrissey is coming to Auckland.
Delving into Mexico’s unlikely obsession for all-things-Morrissey, Mexico City-based DJ and producer Camilo Lara (Mexican Institute of Sound) has assembled Mexrrissey, a six-piece super-group of Mexican musicians, paying homage to the iconic Smiths frontman.
Mexrrissey’s award-winning recipe takes the Sage of Salford’s back catalogue, adds a dash of The Smiths, translates it all into Spanish and presents it with lashings of Latin sparkle. Vibrant rhythms of ranchera, mariachi, danzón, mambo, norteño and cha cha cha reinvent the melodrama, sarcasm and dark humour of Morrissey’s anthems, cooking up a hot-mix that has audiences jumping, laughing, dancing wildly and shedding happy tears.
Come revel in Mex-cunian madness!
