I like anything Ry Cooder presents and this was no disappointment. Appreciate the historical facts; how I learned the influence of German unpah sp? and the Irish pipes flute & pace entered the Mexican music. Sure glad I found this, partly because of the recent Ken Burns series on country music interview with Ry. No, it's not for everybody. Very enlightening to understanding the enormous variety of styles & genres of Mexico's music.

VERY GOOD 2010 set of video and music celebrating the story of the San Patricio battalion - a group of Irish immigrant volunteer soldiers who deserted the U.S. Army in 1846 to fight on the Mexican side in the Mexican-American War (1846–1848).
The album features collaborations with Moya Brennan, Linda Ronstadt (in what remains her most recent commercial recording), Liam Neeson, Los Cenzontles, Los Tigres del Norte, Lila Downs, Van Dyke Parks, Carlos Núñez, and Chavela Vargas (among others).

If you like Mexican and Celtic music then you will enjoy this CD. If you just like one and not the other you may not appreciate it as much. As you can tell, I was part of the latter.
