Ídolo: The Ballad of Chalino Sánchez

8. Life After Death

In the last episode of the season, we explore Chalino's legacy 30 years after his death. His music revolutionized the corrido genre and gave Mexican-Americans an icon of their own. But it also forever changed the relationship between the artists who perform narcocorridos and organized crime and, some argue, paved the way for the normalization of violence and the narco-cultura we see in Mexico today. Ultimately, we reflect on how a humble kid from Sinaloa became an international idol.
