About Arsenal Efectivo

Arsenal Efectivo play straight-ahead, hardcore, modern narcocorridos, and along with Legado 7, are among the progenitors of the "Corridos Verde" movement. The two-guitars-and-bass trio — supplemented by an array of brass, reeds, and percussion — generates a music whose energy and performance style are raw and immediate. As is customary within the genre, Arsenal Efectivo's songs focus on the realities of leading the gangster and narco lifestyles. But what is unique is the U.S/California-tinged lens through which these narratives are refracted — this perspective has won them an enormous audience at digital streaming, and they have since dubbed their own style "trap corridos." Their debut full-length release, En La Fuga on Rancho Humilde, was issued in November of 2017 and peaked at number 12 on the Regional Mexican albums charts, while their videos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.
