Las Hermanas Guerrero - Corrido de Juan Meneses

These are Maria Luisa and Felipa, collectively known as Las Hermanas Guerrero, a popular South Texas duet. This ballad was performed with Jimmy Morgan's Conjunto in 1946. The Guerrero sisters recorded songs for the Ideal label in San Benito, although I'm not sure where this particular narcocorrido was recorded. This song tells the story of Juan Meneses, a chief that was brutally killed in Mexicali on June 23, 1946. I wish I had more information about this duet but they are an obscure subject. But I hope you enjoy this classic narcocorrido!
