Tejano refers to more than a dance style. It references everything about the unique culture that emerged among Spanish-speaking residents of Texas, some with ancesters who first settled here hundreds of years ago.
Similar in many ways to the Norteño culture of northern Mexico (Texas was, for a time, under Mexican rule), Tejano encompasses a full range of musical and dance styles, including Conjunto, Danzon, Mambo, Bolero, Polka, Waltz, Redova, and Ranchera.
With a diverse array of musical influences, not just from the various classes and regions of Mexico, but from Germans, Czechs, and other European Americans and also African Americans, Tejano and Conjunto music continue to evolve.
Some of the more recent influences on Tejano music and dance include Western Swing, South American imports like Cumbia, and American Rock ‘n Roll.
But the core and soul of Tejano music remains with traditional folk, with the ever-popular accordian as a musical centerpiece.
