Virgin of Guadalupe Videos 9: Mi Morenita

A singer-songwriter from Cancun, Jorge "El Pelón" Correa is also the author of Niños de Guerra "Un Grito a la Libertad". His first CD, De Pura Suerte (La Chicharra Music, 2008) includes a special song devoted to firefighters, "Casta de Valientes". El Pelón's song, "Mi Morenita", speaks to a Mary who makes no distinctions of social class, but who is the ultimate recourse of the poor against the violence that plagues their lives. The video has a technical flaw, a slight pause in it. Wait through it; it's worth it.
