RESISTANCE TO THE NEW GENERATION OF Multicultural
By Stephanie Fernandez MagaÃ±a As every Saturday from 10:00 am, the seats on the
Poplar Cultural Tianguis beginning to show their fancy products to be sold to a
multicultural community. With forms of dress and think differently, come togeth
er punketos, goths, eskatos, cholos, rastas, rockers and kids lately called stra
wberries, with the sole motive of enriching their ideas, exchange goods, listen
to music groups not well known in the market, or observe artists who reveal thei
r literary and visual. Since the inauguration of the Poplar Cultural Tianguis mo
re than 25 years ago, specifically on October 4, 1980. Which was scheduled for o
nly four weeks, extended to two years within Poplar Museum. At this time there w
as a audiorama, where all tested their discs, one by one. Then the market place
came "on the street, says the brain behind Poplar, Jorge Pantoja, the" autonomy
within the UNAM UNAM, and a bastion of what is now called counter-culture, alter
native culture, but for many all that was only pure marijuana. "(in the article,
Funk Report on RaÃºl Torttoledo) now can be found from an acetate disc of The D
oors to the Panda's latest single on CD and people like John" The Monkey ", they
walk with a crate to show yesteryears and contemporary titles. He says, "I am a
long time here, I've seen happen to great band and I think it has lost some of
the core that formed the flea market, barter and counterculture is setting aside
to make way for more goods trade "- in a disc that shows Allison, a group that
recently heard on radio stations.
At the same time that "monkey" mind what you think of the flea market, a man app roaching middle age, dressed in black, tattoos covering his two arms, leaving no blank space, with leather vest and full of studs, says: "Monito brought me what I asked, I brought you what we had been, I urge ... I've been looking like craz y" in that "The monkey" out of his backpack acetate disc with totally black box and says "And I have the original" Lord, smiles and puts his hand on the shoulde r and says "good, they are also original. Ten. So with that attitude if they wan t to do business with you "the Lord gives three CD's, fired hitting the palms of your hands and making strange gestures. When you remove the master, "Monkey" co mments "so I say, you're missing a bit the essence, because there are still peop le who come and swap discs for others, but there are shows like now that are not very nice because they come The Ultrasonic and these are either crazy, "makes a gesture of disgust and goes walking with the Crate and offering them to all who pass by his side. Later you can see clothes stalls, black ruffled skirt and pin k blouse with large insurance, joining the sleeves with the other side of the bl ouse, belt studs, black clothes torn and different fabrics, all camouflaged shir ts colors, blue, pink, purple, and the typical military green. Sure, but this ca n not miss the posts of permanent tattoos or piercings and henna, with very part icular sellers, full of tattoos and piercings to the cheeks, speaking in a very quiet. "Friends here is hygiene and are very cheap, you really very nice with on e of these in the eyebrow" pointing to a pircing a pink flower, "... and you ask without compromise"
Those who also make suggestions to change your look or add an attachment to your image are the boys with the dreadlocks, offering a variety of braids or dreadlo cks of different sizes, as Hugo mentions "Look friend we suggest you make chidas braids because they look, but at least I prefer to do dreadlocks to braids ... not that be easier but many people do not know really dreadlocks why these "poin ting to his big hair full of thick and thin dreadlocks showing an attitude of in terest in having real meaning of that expression of this group called the Rastas . "Look at the reason why is because we get dreadlocks so marks our religion is a form of expression, of being against the conventional, but I'm also people who think they do not have to be vegetarian, or smoke marijuana or hear reggae, or be to become a Rastafarian dreads, just enough to feel like, so we do in this pu estesito dreadlocks, but I leave out some disagreement,Âand then I make a frien d ... "" laughing and calling other people to approach his job. There is a post that called attention very passing through there, masks show a variety of spikes and studs, conrsets and whips, hats, belts and bracelets. The mannequin is obse
rved from afar, is dressed in a network, leather bracelets, corset full of chain s and a leather cap. "I say the bald, says the owner of the place" referring to the dummy, "everything you see, what my husband and I do by hand, is one of the few places that make their own merchandise" suddenly leaves many people parties and interrupt the conversation, but not before I tell the lady "come back soon a nd we are here to serve you" enter more tianguis can perceive an odor of marijua na, combined with the odor selling quesadillas on the side stage. The latter inv aded a great euphoria that the floor was booming because of all the emotions exp ressed here, both the public and by the interpreters.
Ultrasonic ... huuuu!, Sing of Rude! No fan, no longer enjoy band!, Shouted and whistled the public constantly, to enjoy the presentation of the group. Jenny un til she spoke, a group member, "not Ojesto, stop throwing the band that came ear ly, because they are almost upon us and we can not play cool ... and now it is g oing rola rude" people cited at the site began jumping and chanting the song, li stened very well to such a degree that gave me goosebumps. Singing "that rude, c rude and rude that I forgive you because I know you are a poor beggar, that rude , crude and rude that, so I have to take me with bandits like you ..." suddenly the distance is seen throwing air to a boy, then a young, overwhelmed by emotion that produced those screams, whistles, songs and music heard all that was there . Singing little five songs, the Ultrasonic goodbye and those present were gradu ally retreating, leaving behind the emotions experienced, and a pleasant experie nce, as Lily said Marquez was well cool, short but cool, whenever they come to P oplar am the first to get in front of the stage. " Leaving behind the different ways of thinking, the kids walk to the metro Buenavista, abandon some of them th ere, pleased to have heard the group they like, buy products they are interested in or just watch the amount of things you can found in the Poplar Cultural Tian guis. You can see the wide range of people who have gone through this street ove r 25 years, the acceptance by some of the merchants by the constant change in id eologies and that all is not done as before. The different forms of expression b y an ideological identification, have made this place one of the areas visited b y foreign and domestic tourists, thus becoming, in an area important for certain groups are not widely accepted by society.
FROM THE INDEPENDENT VOICE OF MUSIC: METAL MEETING WITH THE MEXICAN By Yazmin Ro driguez Bustamante youth's desire to have spaces in which free speech is communi cated, invites us to further develop alternative proposals to be reminded that n ot only the "big "can do things, and that we are more doors open and ensure the entry of new, intelligent cultural proposals. Alejandro Hernandez is the vocalis t, guitarist, producer and musical director of Capricornus. A Mexican indie band of metal that occurs in the concert of Radio Poplar, emblematic institution lik e the Tianguis Cultural itself. From six feet and some height, complexion and li ght eyes, long hair, Chinese, light brown with a broad smile as he sees this mus ician. Meanwhile, the prospect of independent music begins his defense. A musici an must have a huge heart, an immense love of this, fight, fight, fight ... Curr ently I have about 20 years playing and it is difficult to survive. We had to pl ay in bands other music to try to get some money and buy musical instruments, bu t the important thing is not to lose faith. You blindly believe in what you do, defend it tooth and nail, that you like, you enjoy it, you do not have very larg e claims because I've known people who want to eat the world, spend four or five years are gone. Sometimes I put into question the issue of being a musician and try to do something else, but it breaks my heart, dammit, I spent the whole
life to music, why I quit,Âwhy! Then do not have no other way than continue fig hting to try to enlist the support of the people around you. If someone wants to follow the path of being a musician, you must have a huge heart, an immense lov e of this, fight, fight, fight, and I do I will continue fighting until the end of the final. The value of music in the Poplar Alejandro Hernandez now located i n front of over a hundred young people with a pedestal in front of him and the r est of the group make sense of Capricornus. Among distorted guitars and the fusi
on of progressive industrial metal give way to new sounds that cause excitement among the public, more than five and dance, others fly. The metal has been submi tted. "The times I come to Poplar, one or two times a month to move to greet my friends, buy music, DVDs and all that, I am a customer, I'm still a fan. After t he euphoric period, the CD sales table is covered by several youths. There are o nly four discs Capricornus on the surface and in less than two minutes had disap peared one by one for fifty dollars per hand. - You bring more than Capricornus? "Yes," replied the drummer for the band to sales manager. - Have you already fi nished? - Question concerned a young man who decides to wait more that a disc is placed on the table ... "I entered the world of music at age 14, a young man ca rrying equipment and tuning guitars. Then came the poplar and acquired scores, t apes and all that information is absorbed and learned to play the videos, I'm 10 0% self taught, I had no training, no musical education class. That truth we hav e no money, we do not support anything or anyone. We do what we can, but we are always looking to the future. You have to be very focused, very serious, take it easy, fun and down to earth. I am a person. I'm Just that, a rock musician who likes to play.
Because fashions imposed radio and television, there is a culture of rock, at le ast not in Mexico City. I have made trips to the interior of Mexico and found bl ack metal bands, punk hard and radicals. Once we went to play a Chihuahua and I saw a video channel of heavy metal and said Mexico does not exist! No metal chan nels, there is nothing. I'm a Chihuahua and an open TV channel, a lot of favorit e bands and I enjoy like crazy while everyone was asleep and I happy - oh, this video and this and this one! - As young child because the way I am, I am a child yet. What we want is to play Doing Capricornus said, gee, I'm going to continue recording music but nobody peel. I showed my brother that the music had somethi ng to say, without pretensions. It is not my first desire to be famous or have a lot of money, no. We only want to play, especially look for spaces. The scene o f the indie forums is a poor, but we are open to where we go to play call: south , north, west, east and I hope that happens because that's what we do. Capricorn us is: Alejandro Hernandez, guitar and vocals; Chema, Battery, and Ivan, Low. We have a large amount of material. In fact we are promoting a production called T he cosmic inner circle, is a double album. At the same time we are working on ne w songs for an album edit, independent, of course, possible resources. Thus Capr icornus represents the alternative scene, freely and autonomously. And as I said Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky: "Indeed, were it not for music, would have more reason to go crazy." Music is the language most sublime of human beings. And Nietzsche rethinking, without independent music life would be a mistake.
The Poplar and cultural resistance by Martha Jimena Lopez Villa's eleven in the morning and around is like a dream. The Tianguis Cultural Poplar is an area of t he city which brings together many cultural expressions and ways of life in a fr ee and unbiased. And is that Poplar has all kinds of people, from children who a re led by the hand by their parents or siblings, even the "veterans", those hard y men long tresses and a straight face that boast that "without our work , you w ould not be here. " Today is a Saturday together. Here are the regular visitors and those who begin to engage in this alternate world. In the distance are the v endors with their clothes, CDs and books in their hands talking with buyers and anyone who wishes to speak. So here, people want to talk and do it. Want to danc e and can do so, you can even leave the stage to the musician who has not met it s melodic instincts. In Poplar there is freedom but also demand, the reason is t hat space is achieved to zeal so hard. However,Âall who come here looking for a nswers can find them looking for trends that medium is diffusion and effective i n the goal. Today the question is the Rastafarians and its current in society. T he followers of this current of thought expressed as one of its fundamental prin ciples that says that "Not every dread is Rasta and not every Rasta is dread", i e that the fact of using dreadlocks (correct name of so-called "Rastas" ) does n ot identify a Rastafarian and vice versa. And it has been generally felt that al l who use it Rastafarian dreadlocks. However, the rate of use is, at present, an
