Synopsis

Album Description
A unique musical culture flourishes in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and southern Arizona: Yaqui Pascola dance, Tohono O'odham fiddle band music, and the more contemporary Native American Chicken Scratch sound with traditional conjunto polkas and corridos, Latino-influenced big bands, northern Mexican and German-rooted norteno, modern conjunto and orquestra Tejana. Licensed from 4 small regional record labels that specialize in this music. In addition to 5 American Indian tracks, this album also includes 13 Hispanic and Southwestern American songs. 56 minutes "The party album of the year...the best accompaniment to tequila since the taco chip" - Rolling Stone En el valle del Río Grande [Río Bravo] florece una cultura musical única, en esa zona ubicada entre Texas y el sur de Arizona: desde la danza Pascola de los indios Yaqui y la música para banda de violines Tohono O?odham, hasta las sonoridades más contemporáneas del Chicken Scratch de los indígenas norteamericanos, las tradicionales polcas y corridos de conjunto, las big bands con influencia latina, la música norteña con influencias tanto mexicanas como alemanas, el conjunto moderno y la orquesta tejana. Esta compilación ha sido autorizada por 4 compañías disqueras regionales especializadas en este tipo de música. Además de los 5 cortes de música indígena, este álbum incluye también 13 canciones de origen hispánico y del sureste americano. 56 minutos
