The Campesino Dj!! Jairo Mendez

jairo mendez
One of the best exponents of the New Venezuelan National Folklore began his artistic career in 1983 in the town of La Grita, Tachira.
As a real country person..or as we call it in spanish: a real campesino; he was in touch with tropical music while harvesting..

He wrote to me many times, but he never finished his emails..and i never checked his tunes.

the reason?
he was writing from a CAFE INTERNET!!! and he ran out of time in the middle of the email..

Later when he sent me his first song i was amazed!!
AND I TOLD HIM TO USE SOUNDCLOUD n POST HIS TUNES THERE!!
i asked him: how u make music in the middle of nowhere?
-I have a dj console and a computer i bought in a Pawn shop- he replied– i got it when the cops arrested a drunk disc jockey from Radio Perola in a bikini contest and it was used as the bail!!!!

Its recordings got heard by the prestigious company Super Tamarindo C.A. a Production Label recognized in venezuelan popular country music,
I want to introduce you this young popular music producer who has been in majestic “campesinos” events participating as Dj in both Colombia and Venezuela.
