The Soundtrack

Since the first episode of Children of the Revolución Alex McCumba has been passionately weaving original musical movements to fit the drama and emotion of the stories being recounted by the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of those who fled Mexico 100 years ago. McCumba has blended the tradition of Mexico’s massive contribution to music with an American cinematic sensitivity into music that tell stories of mayhem, exodus, the pursuit of justice, hope, glory and ultimate sacrifice. Ethnic strings, horns, the accordion and mystical piano interludes set the stage for one of the bloodiest plights for justice in modern history, The Mexican Revolution. Journey through the recuerdos of The Children of the Revolución through medium of this music that puts you on the edge of vida y muerte.

    Just discovered Children of the Revolucion! These are the stories of my family as well, want to see more in the future. Don’t forget those of us who moved on to harsh West Texas and still made it too, despite many hardships.

  2. I would like a copy of the soundtrack. Please let me know how I can get a copy.
