Just dipped into the first two chapters of this book and they’re inspiring and eye opening - they immediately challenge my notions about copyright, copying and piracy.

With the development of new technologies, people started to record the Sonideros’ performances and then sell them again in Tepito. So the Sonideros realized they could sell their own live CDs. That’s why after an hour of live show, you can buy the “First hour live CD” and after two hours the “Second hour live CD,” etc., all in real-time. Sonideros not only play music, but also make live dedication messages like “Hey, hello to my mother and my brother living in Texas” that are also recorded on the CD. This community spirit and “close to the crowd” mentality is very important for them.
Some people buy those CDs to sell them again on the street – music is always in movement.
