Tejano and Conjunto Web Collection

Archived since: May, 2010

Description:

Websites, videos, blogs and other resources covering Tejano and Conjunto music. These popular music genres originated from south Texas, with similarities to the Mexican norteño, but is also influenced by several American musical genres and in particular features elements of polka. The basic duo of accordion and bajo sexto (12-string bass guitar) has grown to include other instruments (drum kit, bass guitar, etc.) but these two instruments still characterize the sound of the ensemble.

Subject:   Society & Culture Tejano music,  Conjunto music
