Sleep, Little One: The Mexican Institute of Sound and "Drume Negrita"

Today's random tune is by the Mexican Institute of Sound, Mexico City-based producer and DJ Camilo Lara's electronic music project. Fusing Mexican folk music with modern sounds, MIS is part of a growing movement in Mexican music. Lara started with mixing music for holiday mix tapes, and after getting enthusiastic receptions for his creations, began making musical collages under the moniker Mexican Institute of Sound while relying on samples of Mexican classical music. He has released four albums, with a fifth due next year. This song, Drume Negrita, is from his 2013 CD Méjico Maxico.
