Reggaeton has left Akwid's unique brand of regional Mexcican-influenced rap in the dust, but that hasn't stopped the L.A. brother act from evolving -- and how. The siblings teamed up with another brother act -- Adolpho and Omar Valenzuela, top-flight producers for regional Mexican superstars Banda Recodo -- to create their first fully live album, and the production is stunning. You have never heard horns like this; they're so gorgeous they actually outshine Akwid's humorous, barbed exploration of the immigrant experience.
