So, I was wondering which Mexican bands and artists the world hears and knows about. Which one(s) would you consider the best of them? Anxious

For every comment, I'll try to give you a recommendation. Just say your favorite musical genre or artist and I'll try to show you something you may like.

I think the major two Mexican artists I find myself listening to a lot (this is not counting other Spanish-speaking countries) are probably Natalia Lafourcade and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

I'm also a Rodrigo y Gabriela fan.

I'm big on progressive rock, and the Mexican group Cast is a fave of mine. I've also taken a liking to Iconoclasta.

While not contemporary, I'd like to add that I love the music of Mexican classical composer Carlos Chavez.

I also like the metal band, The Chasm, who started out in Mexico City.

Excellent, if you like Rodrigo y Gabriela, my recommendation is Cabezas de Cera (Wax Heads).

This band lead by the Sotelo brothers is as prog and experimental as it can be. The thing I like the most of them is that besides using traditional instruments they create their own.

Hope you like it.

Well, I've already posted a recommendation for Rodrigo y Gabriela fans, so let's move to Natalia Lafourcade.

She comes from 2 different movements one is the Mexican Folklore and the other one is the singer-songwriter women that emulated from Kate Bush, Tori Amos or Fionna Apple.

If the thing that catches your ear is the traditional sound of Natalia you should listen to Lila Downs a Zapotec (an indigenous group from the south of Mexico)-American singer that has an amazing voice. Her best album is called Sandunga.

If you like the singer-songwriter aspect of her music, listen to Julieta Venegas. She started in a ska band named Tijuana-No and moved towards a rock-pop approach, but you can still hear some Mexican folk influence. Her best album is called Bueninvento.
