"Anoche Estuve Ilorando" by Hermanos Herrera
Watch Hermanos Herrera perform "Anoche Estuve Ilorando"
The gut-wrenching, cry-provoking canción ranchera is omnipresent in Mexican culture on both sides of the US–Mexico border. The Hermanos Herrera take their jarocho sound to parties and social occasions of all sorts, and this classic ranchera, written by the late, famed singer/songwriter Cuco Sánchez, takes you there. When the three voices come in at the refrain, audiences erupt with heartfelt "gritos" (yells).
