Huichol Musical's 2008 release, DESDE MEXICO... CUMBIA CUSINELA, sticks to the ensemble's well-established tradition of mixing contemporary sounds with their own highly indigenous roots. The songs are fast-paced dance tracks and, at first listen, the fact that they sing in their native Huichol language from time to time may not even be noticed. Songs like "El Centenario," "Soledad," and even the bonus track, "Cumbia Cusinela Disco Version," all speak to Huichol Musical's universal appeal despite the specific regional nature of their sound.
