The beginnings of the Mexico Cenzontle duo date back to 2015 when Liliana Gama invites a musician to play music for her play: "Xantolo, or the man who did not make an offering" that deals with the tradition of the Day of the Dead in Mexico. Among other traditional Mexican pieces, the play includes "El Querreque", huapango for which Liliana had composed some allusive couplets. In order to have the music ready for the presentation, this musician began to play the violin parts on the piano, resulting in an eclectic and fresh sound. This was the beginning of an adventure.

As in the rancherías and rural and urban populations of Mexico, the duet makes music "with what I have”. So you should not be surprised if you listen to a son jarocho played by piano and jarana or another from Jalisco whom the keyboard partner is a blow guitar (guitarra de golpe); that the second voice of a Michoacan Pirékua is a baroque flute and that the danzón orchestra itself is reduced to a vocal game.

And since then there is no stopping her. Throughout this time they have given more than 30 concerts in the main venues for Mexican popular culture such as the National Museum of Popular Cultures (Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares), the José Luis Cuevas Museum (Museo José Luis Cuevas) where they participated in the celebration of the 15 years of the museum, in the National Watercolor Museum, which they consider their second home (Museo Nacional de la Acuarela “Alfredo Guati Rojo”), they have accompanied musicalized guided tours in the traditional Museum’s Envennings and have accompanied the inaugurations of renowned watercolourists inside and outside its galleries. Furthermore, the National Museum of Interventions (Museo Nacional de las Intervenciones) has heard the chirping of this Cenzontle (Mockingbirth), delighting its audience twice; In the same way, the House of the First Printing in America (La Casa de la Primera Imprenta en América) has danced and sung to the sound of the duo, a testimony was printed in the magazine of the Autonomous Metropolitan University (Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana) .

Their first album "Agua de Todos los Ríos" evoques the musical wealth of Mexico that comes from all its latitudes and genres becoming a sound reference that connects the new generations with their heritage and comes alive again in the memories that once were accompanied by these colorful themes. Recently, this material was presented at the Art Museum of the SHCP (Museo de Arte de la SHCP), being widely accepted by the public.
