SAN DIEGO, May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — 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.
