Orkesta Mendoza - Cumbia Volcadora b/w Caramelos (7")

$8.99

To talk about borders and the diasporas they create is to be pitched headlong into our era's most urgent global debate. Orkesta Mendoza's contribution to that debate is to show us what the Mexico-United States border sounds like and what masterpieces can be achieved by honest cultural exchange. What we decide to do with that information is up to us. With this record, however, we'll have an awful lot of fun deciding.

Focused, fierce and beautifully executed by a superbly drilled set of musicians, “Cumbia Volcadora” and “Caramelos” fully match Orkesta Mendoza's explosive live performances. Mexican electronic pioneer Camilo Lara (AKA Mexican Institute of Sound who has been remixed by Ad Rock of Beastie Boys and Tricky and has collaborated with Gogol Bordello, Sly and Robbie, Toots and The Maytals, N.A.S.A., Kool AD, Stereo MC's, and MC Lyte), Salvador Duran (who has lent his voice to Calexico and Iron and Wine), Quetzal Guerrero (of Osunlade's Yoruba Records), and Ceci Bastida (of Nacional Records) join forces with Tucson's Orkesta Mendoza (lead by Calexico's Sergio Mendoza) on Boogieburg's fourth vinyl release housed in a hand-stamped antique green “old style” sleeve.

Online orders are processed within *3-4 business days or *7-9 business days depending on availability.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!

Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested. 

Pre-Orders

We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change. If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available. 

If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship. Please specify in the comments section of the checkout if you would like to:  a) hold your entire order until it can be entirely fulfilled or, b) have the in-stock items shipped immediately and the pre-ordered items ship when available. Please note that option B may require additional shipping charges as multiple packages will be shipped.

Out of Stock Items

Our stock rapidly changes and we try and set in place a system that avoids purchasing items that become out of stock.
