What does the image of the band have in common with the gorgeous portrait below?

And what do they have to do with a celebration?

This post, a celebration of corpulent women, is inspired by Lola Lyndon’s post, Fat.

The group. Los Razos de Sacramento, celebrate big beautiful women in their Banda music video, Mi Gordis.

A little background info may be useful. Banda is the familiar Mexican oom-pa brass band music inspired by German immigrants who settled in south Texas and northern Mexico.

Mi Gordis” is a Mexican term of endearment meaning roughly “My Fatty“. Except for the fact that “Mi Gordis” could apply affectionately to either a male or a female, the term might be more accurately translated as “My Plushie.”

Personally, I am overweight my self. However, I prefer my significant other to refer to me as “Pleasantly Obese“.
