Starting today, the singers of corridos lying down may not appear in cancun, Quintana Roo, after the government of that state made this decision after the last presentation that was given in the city by El Komander. Why can’t they sing in Cancun anymore? This is the reason for the prohibition.
The corridos lying down They are the music that is playing everywhere: its main exponents are Natanael Cano, Featherweight, El Komander and Junior H, to name a few; their themes and style are getting more and more famous, so now they have a huge fan following.
However, not everyone likes this musical subgenre derived from the corrido since it has explicit lyrics that advocate different crimes, such as drug trafficking, robbery or use of weapons; Recently, Featherweight commented in an interview that the singers who are dedicated to this type of music try to show the reality of what is happening and, in most cases, it is the same organized crime leaders who are looking for them to write songs for them.
Why did they ban concerts of lying down corridos in Cancun?
Because of this, it is that the government of cancun forbade the realization of concerts of corridos lying down because he considered that said music makes an apology for violence. “The Police and Good Government Band establishes that public shows should not promote any type of violence and unfortunately we have had incidents every time there are these types of concerts in the Plaza de Toros; For this reason, the municipal government made the determination to no longer allow this type of concerts”, informed the general secretary of the city council, Jorge Aguilar Osorio.
The corridos lying downwhich also have overtones of urban music such as rap, hip-hop, trap and even reggaeton, are no longer well regarded in that state of the Mexican Republic, so the scheduled presentations of singers of the genre were cancelled, beginning with the one that El Komander was going to perform on May 19 at the Plaza de Toros de cancun.
Similarly, Grupo Firme announced that it will not perform on July 1 at the Andrés Quintana Roo Stadium. The government’s ban on cancun towards music concerts that promote violence could also affect other genres, such as metal, rock and hip-hop.
