Los Texmaniacs Borders y Bailes CD

  • $1499

"Hip music that everybody in the world can relate to, with the traditional conjunto elements," says Texmaniacs leader Max Baca of their Texas Mexican sound. Four masterful instrumentalistsâGrammy-anointed bajo sexto player Max Baca, accordionist and Tropa F alumnus David Farias, conjunto tejano veteran bassist Oscar Garcia, and multi-instrumentalist Lorenzo Martinez on drumsâbreathe new life into the century-old music of the Texas Rio Grande Valley. Their mentor and friend, Tejano accordion great Flaco Jimenez, makes a special appearance.

Los Texmaniacs are two-time Smithsonian Folklife Festival participants, performing on the National Mall in Washington D.C., in 2008 as part of the Texas program and again in 2009 as part of Las Americas: Un Mundo Musical.

Borders y Bailes is part of the Smithsonian Folkways Tradiciones/Traditions series of Latino music albums, produced with support by the Smithsonian Latino Center.
