  • Official video for "Mexico Americano" performed by @Los Texmaniacs! This polka-beat song rose in visibility through the now classic Arhoolie Records album 'Corridos de la Frontera' (now found in the Smithsonian Folkways catalog) by Los Pingüinos del Norte and its subsequent performance by Los Lobos. Josh Baca explains, "It's a beautiful song because it identifies who we are. My grandparents on my mother's side were born and raised in Mexico and moved over here to America to better their lives...that side of my family taught me that there's more to life than just playing the accordion...values in life, morals. And the record represents that."

  • Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles's "El Pitayero", is played in the form of son jalisciense. With its signature syncopated rhythm, it is the cornerstone of mariachi musical tradition. Mariachi Reyna takes this generations old musical gem and fills it with high energy and musicality in its surging dynamics and driving rhythm.
