Calle 13 – Cumbia de los Aburridos (a really weird, funny, and probably inappropriate video)
Calle 13 is a band from Puerto Rico well known for eclectic music (somewhere beyond reggaeton), social commentary, and occasional controversy, political and otherwise. Cool. Oh, and some accordion in there sometimes from their man Visitante, who plays like, a million instruments. Like the disturbingly provocative melodica in this concert-poster (left).
Anyways, what’s important is, I found this highly strange and funny video by them, that is self-un-explanitory. I do not know what it is about. It’s probably (as I’ve noted in my title) inappropriate in various ways. But it’s awesome as it unfolds. Think, country-music cumbia, olympics dance-contest, non-normative body images, and tutus, and you’ll have no idea what it means either.
