Following the success of the top-selling album Contigo Por Siempre, released in 2001, Latin Grammy-winning group Banda El Recodo returned in July 2002 with their lauded "sinaloense" style (aka, "música tambora," in reference to the legendary music performed by brass bands from the northern state of Sinaloa). No Me Se Rajar features the ranchera-inflected "No Me Sé Rajar," a mariachi-flavored song called "Aca Entre Nos," two medleys, and contemporary dance mixes of "Las Vias del Amor" and "No Me Sé Rajar." With an impeccable instrumental performance, the well-arranged "La Muerte de un Gallo" emerges as one of the most captivating tracks.
