One of the most popular acts in early-2000s regional Mexican music, Beto y Sus Canarios, like their peers Grupo Montez De Durango and Patrulla 81, excel at playing exuberant tunes that are ideal for festive occasions. On 2005's ARDIENTES, Beto and his group sail through a charming set that begins with the mid-tempo "No Puedo Olvidarte," a tune that pulls listeners in with upfront accordion lines and crooning vocals. Other highlights include "Atole De Elote," a number that deftly combines the cumbia and merengue styles, and "Donde Estes Y Con Quien Estes," a vibrant ranchera track. Beto y Sus Canarios are so dedicated to a good-time, dance-friendly vibe that even songs with sad titles such as "Amor Imposible" ("Impossible Love") will get listeners on their feet and ready to careen around the room. For a fine example of traditional Mexican music with a contemporary twist, look no further than this album.
