Machete Corridos Song by Rome

Machete Corridos Song by Rome from SA Studios Global on Vimeo.

In a triumphant return to a classic Mexican folk genre, SA Studios commissioned LA based rapper and hip hop producer Rome to inject some character into the Machete soundtrack through the addition of a timeless Corridos ballad. Recounting the brave or tragic tales of celebrated men and women, Corridos was a prominent means of storytelling and narrating true events before the advent of mass media in Mexico. Passing under the radar of sometimes politically biased media, Corridos was news and stories for the people, by the people. Trejo’s Machete was a Corridos song waiting to be sung, and Rome’s selection adds flavor and history to the hero’s fearless quest for revenge.
