    i´M Lourdes Landeros from Mexico City.
    Here in my country, people from different states like Veracruz do something similar to rapping, It´s called “sones”, and the singers improvise rhymes called “décimas”, telling the local news, or saying something about a specific topic. They play little guitars called “jaranas”.
    To do these improvisations you need to have a lot of vocabulary and to have a fast brain to go putting the words that will have the same ending letters.
