San Antonio, Laredo, El Paso, Corpus Christi, Seguín, and other Texas towns inspired this second Smithsonian Folkways recording of “hardcore conjunto” music by the spunky and spirited GRAMMY-winning group Los Texmaniacs.
Their signature sound comes from deep within the heart of Texan tradition, while Max Baca’s bajo sexto and David Farías’s accordion playfully break new creative ground. Multi-instrumentalists Óscar García and Lorenzo Martínez complete the quartet, with guest cameos by Western Swing singer Ray Benson, Jason Roberts, and Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame fiddler Bobby Flores.
