The CD addresses a not well known event in the history of Mexico, the role the battalion of San Patricio played in the Mexican-American war. This unit composed of Catholic Irish immigrants was greatly abused by their mostly Protestant Anglo officers, and when they reached Mexico, they chose to side with the Catholic Mexicans. Their bravery was exemplary and to this day they are honored as one of the bravest units to fight for Mexico. The Chieftains continue in the CD their exploration of world folk music by partnering with local artists. While some songs are a great success, others are lacking. However, this is a very original collection of songs.

"Guinness with a lime and a shot of tequila back" to quote my 25 yr old nephew. I bought the CD because I was intriqued. Ry Cooder and The Chieftains? Look closer, Lila Downs, Mariachi Santa Fe, Linda Rondstadt, Los Fokloristas, Carlos Nunez. It works, Folks. Lyrical, martial, haunting......Listen to the CD and do your own review of composition, instruments, or individual performers. Or listen to the CD and indulge yourself. ps: I have very eclectic tastes in music
