music video


In case you missed it: This is a clip from a 2012 concert that’s been online for over two years and it’s suddenly popular all over again. We think Cuban a capella group Vocal Sampling does a great version of the Eagle’s Hotel California. We’re also pumped it’s finally OK to like Cuba and Cubans and Cuban musicians now. Unless you’re Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio, of course.


It’s Raining Tacos, you say? Yum yum yum, yummity yum! It’s like a dream!

dubwisercoverThe trancifying Trouble in My Soul from self-described “Post Futuristic Rebajada Cumbia Soul Experimenter” Mexican Dubwiser was released two years ago, before POCHO reappeared online. So in case you missed it, or forgot about it, here it is. You’re welcome. :-) [Mas…]

Thank God for the Internets and Citizen Uploaders like Scott LaFramenta, who has added English subtitles to the Portuguese stylings of Brazilian-Briton Cibelle and her performance of Gilberto Gil’s Punk da Periferia — punk from the suburbs.

Now it all makes sense! Here’s a recent video of Gil performing the same tune live. [Mas…]

“Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone,” Ry Cooder sings. “Let’s pretend that we’re together all alone. I’ll tell the man to turn the juke box way down low. And you can tell your friend there with you HE’LL HAVE TO GO.” And then Flaco Jimenez plays.

This relatively unknown 2011 (or 2013?) video from Mexican rockers Los Mariachi just re-appeared on Vimeo with much better video and audio than the YouTube original and we’re glad it did. Señorita features the band’s awesome sweet Mexican metal – they got the action, they got the motion, yeah, the boys can play! That’s Ian […]

Enjoy the Internacional, the world-wide (Get it? It’s international!) anthem of those red commie cabrones in Cuba and Venezuela and China and North Korea (and lurking in secretive cells everywhere else but the lamestream media sheeple won’t tell you that). Tomorrow, May 1, is May Day AKA International Workers’ Day, when the communist comrades sing […]

Our mailbox here at POCHO fills up with a lot of questions, and none of them is “Why are the Hip Hop Hoodios — North America’s leading Jewish Latino bi-coastal hip hop collective — so gosh darn popular in France?” OK, so some questions go unasked, sure, but that doesn’t mean they should remained unanswered.

The story so far: Euro art-rockers Neon Neon recorded a song called Raquel in 2007 and a year later someone (shuffle76?) made the song into a music video by mashing up old scenes of (Jo) Raquel (Tejeda) Welch dancing and acting and stuff. Good idea, shuffle76, as if that’s your real name.

HOW IS THIS APPROPRIATE? Frank Zappa: You are what you is (video)

Thumbnail image for HOW IS THIS APPROPRIATE? Frank Zappa: You are what you is (video)

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention tested the limits of free expression and racial taboos in this 1984 music video for You Are What You Is. The hippie-light-show-solarized extravaganza features a harmonica-playing Ronald Reagan, dancing African “natives,” scantily-clad ladies (sexy nurse? sexy stewardess?) and the N-word. It’s all inappropriate and it’s offensive and rude. […]
