Synopsis

Amazon.com
Like his famous father, Santiago Sr., a noted conjunto patriarch, Santiago Jr. plays in the old style of traditional conjunto. The music is simple but still evokes a sense of graceful beauty. The CD offers the happy-go-lucky dance polkas "Antonia Antonia," on discovering a new love, and "El Pescador," on finding happiness in simple tasks, and also includes corridos, a Mexican story-song form that first was used to convey major historical events such as the Mexican Revolution. Here the corrido "Inundacion de Piedras Negras" deals with a major flood. Most of these songs were written by Santiago Sr., and the son pays tribute by recording these classics. Also memorable is the love-unlimited ode "Todo por Ti" and the robust prayers-are-answered tune "Eres un Encanto." --Ramiro Burr
