info 

Sergio Mendoza (also from Calexico) grew up on both sides of the US/Mexican frontier. On the band’s 3rd album, “Curandero,” his musical melding of that experience explodes from the speakers, boogaloo, cumbia, ranchera & rock’n’roll. Orkesta Mendoza found that; as soon as the songs began to flow for Curandero the stars seemed to align and everything was composed, recorded and mastered in just a few short months. The music flows as if it had been waiting to appear. It crosses and re-crosses that fluid border between Mexico and the United States, mixing rock and pop with ranchera and cumbia alongside snatches of mariachi horns. And hovering over everything is the spirit of ‘60s boogaloo. Border music without borders.
