Cancion Mixteca is a Mexican folk song written by Oaxacan composer José López Alavez. Lopez Alavez wrote the melody of the song in 1912. He later added the composed the lyrics in 1915. Lopez Alavez composed it originally about Lopez Alavez's feelings of homesickness for his home region of Oaxaca after moving to Mexico City. In modern times, the song has become an anthem both for the region of Oaxaca and Mexican citizens living abroad who miss their homeland.
