| Documentary about outlaw culture by the Mexican border.
A pretty good and disturbing look at the drug traffic 'culture' in Juarez, Mexico and the music that represents it, literally.

Big time drug bosses pay these musicians to write theme-songs for them to enjoy for themselves and to send a message out to the police and rival gangs that you should not mess with them.

If you don't speak the language the folk songs sounds like happy fiesta music perhaps about wooing a girl or something like that but the happy music has some rather disturbing lyrics about the life of various criminals.

It is bizarre to see big crowds of people in their concerts singing joyfully about kidnapping and decapitating people, when you know that all these songs represents real people and real events.

They also follow one police around who's trying to do the best job he can but is unable to because the criminals have more power than the police does.

So yeah worth seeing.
