Overview

"With "Chalino", Julian Camacho writes about a raw, unflinching Mexican icon with an unapologetic honesty only he can provide. He excels at bringing this story to larger than life tale because he possesses one of the most experienced voices among his contemporaries." Oscar Barajas, Author, "True Tales from the Wireless Clothesline"

"Rosalino "Chalino" Sanchez was a Mexican immigrant from the Mexican state of Sinaloa who came to the US in search of opportunity. In his pursuit of perseverance his gift and talent for writing corridos for the common working class man initiated a world wind phenomena that appealed to Mexican-American youth in Los Angeles, California. Chalino's corridos provided a cultural medium in which Chicanos identified with their own roots. Chalino's contribution to the musical genre of corridos bridged Mexican immigrant music of the Mexican corrido with Mexican-American youth Chalino's corridos and music have forever changed the social fabric of Chicanos in the music scene in Los Angeles. His music helped many Chicanos have a cultural reaffirmation of who they are, allowing Mexican youth in Los Angeles to immerse more deeply into their own Mexican NorteƱo culture. Chalino's unique singing style turned him into a legend that many have tried to imitate, but there will never be another man like him. Chalino defied the odds and became successful starting his own legacy as the king of corridos. Through his art form Chalino left behind his fame and a corrido legacy that was materialized and created in el rancho de Los Angeles, California." Marcos A. Ramos, University of California, Berkeley.

"In the vacuum of Mexican American leadership because of accommodation or negotiation, Chalino emerged as that cultural icon very much needed at a time that Mexicans suffered the single largest decline of income since the great depression of any group in the US from 1989-92. When hope was lost, and I lived through the LA Riots in front of my house in Lennox Chalino was that inspiration so much needed at that time. Prayer, employment, and government assistance had all failed to make my heart happy, and even though Chalinos' music did not fill my hunger, it satisfied my heart at a time it needed nourishment." Ricardo Camacho, A Chalino Fan!
