Houston’s Clave H3 Links Up With Newcomers Ascenso Recio For “LA RAMONA” – Watch Here
If you’ve been paying any attention to the Latin music scene, you’ll know that Música Regional Mexicana has begun changing it’s tune. What was once a genre reserved for traditional sounds, has slowly started urbanizing through a younger generation of musical creatives looking to find a balance between their love for Hip Hop awhile trying to maintain their cultural roots.
The explosion of “Corridos Tumbados” or “Corridos Verdes” is spreading like wildfire to an audience of not just Mexicans, but first and second generation Mexican-Americans as well, who have been contributing their musical input to the overall evolution of the genre.
Most recently, Clave H3, a group comprised of three young guitar players in their early 20’s linked up with newcomers Ascenso Recio, a teenage duo out of Tamaulipas, Mexico, to collaborate on “La Ramona”.
The idea and composition for the song was spearheaded by the founder of Pura Vida Records in Houston, a new and upcoming label organizing and developing emerging talent in both Texas and northern Mexico. “La Ramona” is an ode to the Narco-Corrido lifestyle and the journey from humble beginnings to extravagance through hard work and discernment.
The visuals were shot and edited by Barf, a Houston-based filmmaker and tastemaker who has garnered over 80 million overall views on Youtube.
