  • 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 four small regional record labels that specialize in this music. In addition to five 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
