Tr3s Presents Mtv Unplugged Los Tigres Del Norte and Friends
Released: May 2011
In February 2011, Los Tigres played a show at the Hollywood Palladium and invited high-profile Latin artists to perform their biggest hits with them. Understandably, the MTV Unplugged recording sounds like a giant party. But it's a party with a unique purpose that, by dabbling in Latin pop, rock and even hip-hop, challenges the often heavily policed boundaries of Latin music. The results are, at times, groundbreaking: Funked-up "America" (with Calle 13's Residente) and "Somos Mas Americano" (with an exuberant Zach de la Rocha), for instance, are thick with both artistic and activist politics.
