Pistolera

Season 2 Episode 12 | 29m

A Brooklyn-based quartet, Pistolera borrows from traditional styles of Mexican music, fusing it with indie-rock sensibilities to amass a melodic, danceable sound. Singing in Spanish, their lyrics teem with political vigor, covering U.S.-Mexico border issues, the plight of immigrants and other topics. Watch them perform at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater in Philadelphia.
