Nor-tec Rifa!

Alejandro L. Madrid

Oxford University Press

This chapter traces the history of electronic music in Tijuana in an attempt to understand the Nor-tec myth of origin as a historical contingency that gave meaning to a series of cultural manifestations and artistic pursuits in that city at the end of the 1990s. It shows the individual and collective aspirations implicit in the production and consumption of Nor-tec, and investigates how memory is performed and how imaginaries of tradition and modernity are articulated in Nor-tec's myth of origin.

Keywords:   history, electronic music, Tijuana, Nor-tec, origin, 1990s, myth of origin
