MEXICO'S top court has lifted a ban on ballads that sing the praises of drug lords in the home state of the country's most powerful cartel.
The northwestern state of Sinaloa barred bars and clubs that sell alcohol from playing "narcocorridos" in May 2011, and closed down venues that ignored the rule, arguing that such music glorifies crime.

But a Supreme Court official said on Tuesday that it had scrapped the ban in Sinaloa, which is the homeland of Mexico's most wanted man, the Sinaloa cartel's fugitive kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

"Narcocorridos," part of the norteno musical genre, recount the exploits of drug bosses, from their love stories to their violent clashes with police and soldiers in both live concerts and on jukeboxes.

The genre is popular, making inroads in the United States and other Latin American nations, but it has irked Mexican authorities.

A popular band, Los Tigres del Norte, was barred last year from performing in the northern state of Chihuahua, one of the regions most hit by a drug war that has left 70,000 people dead since 2006.

Performers have also fallen victim to the country's drug violence for refusing to compose a song for a drug capo or because the song did not go down well with the gangs.
A truly trashy sub-culture that appeals to the lowest impulses and values a human could have.

Fortunately there is a kind of "natural cultural barrier" that prevents that this garbage pravails below the Tropic of Cancer, here in Mexico. The influence of Indian-Cosmopolitan Civilization radiating from Mexico City, prevents it.
