La avanzada regia

Monterrey's Alternative Music Scene and the Aesthetics of Transnationalism

Transnational Encounters

Ignacio Corona

Oxford University Press

This chapter about contemporary youngsters from Monterrey, Mexico, and the development of an avant-garde, cutting edge music scene labeled La Avanzada Regia, shows how cultural production can effectively turn around traditional center-periphery dichotomies that privilege Mexico City in the national imagination. In this chapter, the author explores how the combination of a complex transnational production process with a deeply territorialized sense of identification, one centered around the notion of regio [from Monterrey] culture, intersect in La Avanzada Regia. Through a detailed exploration of what he calls a transnational aesthetic in the music and lyrics of Monterrey bands like Control Machete, Plastilina Mosh, and Kinky, the author shows the importance of regional sites of enunciation in the imagination of postnational and globalized scenarios.
