On today’s very special episode of Songmess we are joined by Arturo and Antonio Tranquilino of beloved Mexican rock band Yokozuna. The brothers rose to prominence in the mid-2000s with their bone crunching rock n’ roll and no holds barred stage shows, which took Yokozuna around the world and earned them a whopping five bookings at Mexico’s iconic Vive Latino Festival. Our conversation touches on the band’s history, both Arturo and Antonio’s solo careers (the first eponymous and the second as pobrediablo), and the relevance of rock n’ roll in today’s popular culture. Yokozuna has been in the game for 15 years and they’ve seen popularity boom and wain, which leads to a refreshing dose of wisdom being shared on today’s show. The playlist is also utter hotness, jumping from rock to noise and synthpop that will have you swaying and thrashing throughout. Featured Artists: Yokozuna, Los Dug Dugs, Chac Mool, Arturo Tranquilino, pobrediablo, Lorelle Meets The Obsolete and Vyctoria.
