“Nothing the world holds could match the love waiting for me in Mexico City” - Morrissey
 
In Mexico Morrissey has always been a prophet with honour. His songs of love, loss and longing, with powerful imagery and metaphors have found a huge audience and chimed with generations raised on rancheras and mariachis and their singers who were not afraid to cross the line.
 
Now the love can be returned, with a band made in Mexico City reinventing Morrissey’s songs south of the border.
 
Camilo Lara, the force inside Mexican Institute of Sound, and Sergio Mendoza (Orkesta Mendoza/Calexico) have put together a team of  musical gunslingers from Mexico’s finest bands. Viva MEXRRISSEY!
 
Camilo Lara is the one-man dynamo behind Mexican Institute of Sound, also known as Instituto Mexicano del Sonido. Hailing from the sprawling metropolis that is Mexico City, Lara channels his inner rockstar, while holding down a day job as head of a major label. Like a musical superhero, Lara steps out of his executive alter ego, gets involved with the underground musica movement and begins his musical mission delivering electronic masterpieces with only the help of his computer, his nurturing imagination, and his awesome collection of vinyl. Lara has collaborated on remixes for bands and friends such as Placebo, Gecko Turner, Perez Prado, Mazarin, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Gershon Kingsley, Irving Fields, Babasonicos, and Le Hammond Inferno.
 
Sergio Mendoza's simmering meltdown of Mexican mambo, psychedelic cumbia, ranchero, merengue, rumba, jazz and indie-rock springs out of the thriving, border-crossing music scene of Tucson, Arizona. The multi-instrumentalist was born in Sonora, Mexico and landed in Tucson in his teens. He formed Orkesta Mendoza in 2009 out of a one-off tribute project to the Cuban mambo king Perez Prado, which proved too much fun to stop.
 
FREE corn chips, salsa and homemade guacamole (all vegetarian, as Morrissey would want!) will be available in the foyer ahead of the concert, courtesy of Cambridge's popular, authentic Mexican restaurant Nanna Mexico (www.nannamexico.com)
