Tucson musician Sergio Mendoza is known for his loud, high energy, sweaty live shows and for creating a sound that incorporates elements of music from both sides of the US-Mexico border.

His band, Orkesta Mendoza, is currently touring in Europe, and is releasing a new album called Vamos A Guarachar!, which comes out on Nov. 11 in the US.

Mendoza talks about his new record and how growing up on the border influenced his music.
