The Kronos Quartet

Celebrating the music of Mexican composers, this 2002 album from the Kronos Quartet is as colorful and bold as the album artwork.
The opening track is engineered to sound like a beat-up PA system; mostly annoying with just enough charm to keep you from plugging your ears.

The musical origins range from classical to modern, but there's something distinctive and unifying about the music on this record. It could not be confused with music from any other place.
