Cricket Celebrates Family and Cinco de Mayo

~ Offers Multiple Latin Music Playlists on Muve Music

May 03, 2013, 07:00 ET from Cricket Communications, Inc.

SAN DIEGO, May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cricket Communications is proud to celebrate Latino heritage this Cinco de Mayo, the 5th of May. This holiday represents a historical struggle for freedom and marks the victory of Mexican patriots over the ruling French army at The Battle of Puebla in 1862. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has become a popular celebration of Latin culture, including the food, music, beverages and customs unique to Latinos. What better way to celebrate this Cinco de Mayo than with Latin music and by reaching out to call family and friends.


With Cricket's recently announced "Plan Familiar" or Family Plan, the more lines you add, the more you save. Two no-contract smartphone lines are $40 each when you sign up for automatic bill pay, and each line has its own full speed data allowance so everyone in the family gets their own plan. Now, there is no need to worry about sharing minutes or data, just more time and money to enjoy the things that matter most, like family, friends, and good music.

In recognition of Cinco de Mayo, Cricket's Muve Music developed a special two week focus on Latin music and playlists that capture the pride of Mexico or "Orgullo." These playlists reflect the depth and diversity of La Musica Mexicana. The "Cinco De Mayo – Orgullo Mexicano" celebration will take over Muve Music's Latin Regional genre with banners featuring key artists, songs and albums in its Muve Featured category, and offer a complementary Cinco de Mayo playlist in My DJ.  Week one focuses on the roots of Mexican music and the timeless Rancheras, Son Huasteco, Son Jarocho and Mariachi music from classic artists.  Week two will feature the international rise of Mexican music from Gruperas to Tribal Guarachero. Two sample playlists are shown below.
