Synopsis

In the highly populated boroughs of Mexico City, panting and sweaty bodies meet, clad in fitted spandex and Aventurera heels to dance to the rhythm of the cumbia played under multicolored lights. Called sonideros, these parties began in neighborhood patios, later to become a tradition that, as of 2014, has been threatened by the ban of local government.
