Global Notes: Mexican Bicentennial Edition

To celebrate the Mexican bicentennial, on this week's edition of Global Notes, we've asked three Mexican-Americans here in Chicago to choose a song that makes them think of their ancestral home. Chuy Negrete, a Mexican-American balladeer, performed "Cancion Mixteca."
