Caracas Pop Festival goes Mexican and political

November 19, 2005

The show was good. Backed by a good group of Mariachis, the star
of the main event sang some of his top hits, including “El Rey”,
“Mexico Lindo” and “No soy monedita de oro”. The small audience asked
for crowd favorites such as singing “La Bamba” or dancing “La Raspa”
and insults for Vicente Fox, but it was not to be. The star refused to
repeat his perforamnce, despite his success with it last week. Below
some pictures of the star during his performance, wearing his
traditional revolutionary and colorful red costume, combined with a
beautiful Mexican sombrero, making him look like a very different charro. The Caracas Pop
Festival will continue tonight with Ricky Martin as the main event, Black Eyed Peas to follow tomorrow.
