Today in underground I’m going to take a look at a movie soundtrack that I would recommend for you to listen and that is Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma.
The music used in this film is excellent and it shows what the music like in Mexico was like in 1970. Artist such as Leo Dan from Argentina who’s famous in South America was just being introduced in Mexico and Rocio Durcal, a Spanish singer who was beloved in Mexico. Other artists who became famous over the years to come first started as nobodies, in this case, the like of Jose Jose, Juan Gabriel and Rigo Tovar who would be known later as ” El idolo de Mexico” or Mexico Idol. There was also other artists who music also set the tone for not just the movie but 70’s music scene was going to be, artists such as Perez Prado, La Revolucion de Emiliano Zapata, Acapulco Tropical, Los Strwck and more. There was also music that was from the USA with such unknown artist as Ray Conniff and The Singers, Roger Whittaker, Christie, and Yvonne Elliman. Their type of music also helps pave the way music influence in Mexico in the ’70s.
If you like the film and want to listen to music go ahead and give the soundtrack a go and also look into each of the artist discography and who know they maybe be your next favorite things.
