Four Lovely Ladies: The Mexican Institute of Sound and "Katia, Tania, Paulina y la Kim"

One of Mike's favorites is on tap for the random tune of the day. Katia, Tania, Paulina y la Kim is by the Mexican Institute of Sound. MIS, as it is also known, is 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. Katia, Tania, Paulina y la Kim is from his 2007 CD Piñata. The Youtube above has the whole version of the song. Below, you can see the shorter, commercial video of the song.
