Synopsis

Album Description
Simple and beautiful, melodic and provocative -- everything that authentic South Texas conjunto music can be. For over three decades, accordionist and vocalist Mingo Saldivar has been an endearing figure in the world of conjunto music. Here are 45 minutes of pounding percussive rhythms, accordion-fueled melodies, and aching, emotion-packed lyrics. Thirteen selections that showcase the varied repertoire that Tejano conjunto represents, from poignant rancheras to free-wheeling polkas and cumbias.

CD Reviews

Genuine Texas hero
Tony Ramon | 02/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mingo Saldivar is one of those legendary accordion players from South Texas who made a big name for himself. He fused country and conjunto for a new spirit that stands alone. This is one of his finest CDs ever. According to writer Ramiro Burr in his definitive "Billboard Guide to Tejano and regional Mexican Music," Saldivar "became known for his energetic stage show, where he would hang his accordion at waist level, while swinging, dancing and singing." Indeed, he is still a dynamo on stage, outperforming many young artists half his age."
Some of the best conjunto

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mingo's live performances remind me of a west San Antonio butcher channeling Flaco Jimenez, Waylon Jennings, and James Brown simultaneously."
Super dance c.d.

"I saw Mingo in San Antonio at the Tejano/Conjunto Festival, which if you are a fan of this music you have to go to this five day event.Its in May and now I go every year. Mingo is the bomb."
