Interview: Camilo Lara of the Mexican Institute of Sound

It was a treat to visit at the LAMC with the prodigious and uber-talented Camilo Lara, whose many lives as a vinyl collector, DJ/producer, radio host, music industry exec, movie soundtrack composer (just to mention a few) come together in wry, flavorful and slightly quirky mixes that blend traditional and regional Mexican styles with electronica and dance-club beats. His take on politics, music and Mexicanidad are truly fascinating!

M.I.S. will perform at Unísono Festival Saturday, August 17.
