The Borders of Tejano, Conjunto and Norteño

Conjunto music at one time in the Southwest was king. It was the next phase after Mariachi and dominated the airwaves, especially in Texas. Then from Conjunto, Tejano music broke out and Conjunto was pushed to the side as Tejano, with its exciting horns and, later, synthesizers, ruled the airwaves. And all was good. But then, Norteño came into the picture, pretty much burying Tejano, as Tejano did Conjunto. It didn’t kill Tejano, but at the very least, it dominates the airwaves now.

Everyone knows this story, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about.

Rancho Alegre News – New Additions to Rancho Alegre Radio – Now over 1000 songs!

Hello everyone,

Rancho Alegre hopes that you all had a great Thanksgiving filled with music, joy, laughter and love. With a turkey leg in one hand, and an eye on the new CD’s we picked up from Turntable Records and our already extensive collection, we continued selecting new tracks for Rancho Alegre Radio. Can’t think of a better way to spend the day!

So, what did we add?

More shows! Michael Salgado, Augustin Ramirez, Joe Bravo and Elvira Sanchez

So I’ve learned about a couple more shows since I wrote the last blog post on Tuesday…

Thursday night at Club Rodeo in Austin – Michael Salgado
According to Club Carnaval on Facebook, Michael Salgado will be performing at Club Rodeo, 9515 N. Lamar on Thanksgiving night. He’s a Tejano artist who has been pulled into the Norteño scene and is popular with the Mexican audience. But make no mistake, he is Tejano and it’s nice to see him in town on a holiday.

Rancho Alegre was at Little Joe, but if any of you made it to either of the other shows, we’re curious as to how they went. So, please comment, if you’re so inclined…
