Album Notes
Bola Suriana has been together for over seventeen years, during which time they have developed an original style, taking as a foundation Mexican and Latin American folk music, placing special emphasis on the distinct styles of traditional music in their home state of Michoacán.

Their music has taken them on a journey of cultural forums through much of Mexico and internationally, representing Mexico during twenty tours in a variety of festivals and concerts in Europe, the United States of America, South America, and the Caribbean.

The Bola has recorded sixteen albums to date, a testimonial to their continuing work of sharing the rich musical heritage of their people.

The name of the group is taken from the army of General Emiliano Zapata, who, in the Mexican Revolution of 1910, rose up in arms against the dictator Porfirio Díaz. Zapata hoped to eradicate the precarious conditions under which farmers lived and to create a more just Mexico.

"Violines y todo imantan
quenas, guitarras, charangos
pirekuas, trova, huapangos
ésto y más tocan y cantan
¡Polvadera que levantan!
¡Y cuánto contentamiento!
Sus búsquedas, su talento
prueban una y otra vez
que La Bola es
tradición en movimiento."

- Guillermo Velázquez -

'Michoacán' is a recompilation of earlier Bola Suriana recordings of original songs and instrumental pieces, including rhythms such as pirekuas and sones from the P’urhepecha region as well as the traditional rhythms from the Tierra Caliente, or hot region of the state such as the son planeco and the valona.
