Video Title:
Smithsonian Folkways recording artists Los Texmaniacs play Marina from their new album
Description:
Los Texmaniacs newest album is Borders y Bailes featuring Marina. Click here to hear samples and purchase from Smithsonian Folkways: http://www.folkways.si.edu/albumdetails.aspx?itemid=3226 Los Texmaniacs have fun with their conjunto tejano music on audio engineer Joe Treviño's back porch in San Antonio, Texas. Max Baca (right), on the bajo sexto guitar, says conjunto began with its early pioneers "listening to the German oompa music on the radio in the late 1920s. They would imitate, but in doing so they created their own sound." To appeal to the younger generation, the Texmaniacs "put it up in high gear while preserving the natural beauty of the traditional music."
