"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

"While Tex-Mex music is commonly thought of as the folk music thats popular along the Texas-Mexico border, ironically, it knows no borders when it comes to musical influences. Several selections on this album reach back to Germany and Poland for their roots, while a rhythm like cumbia goes back to Africa by way of Colombia. Still another tune, like the huapango, will have its background firmly planted in Mexico..."
