"Highly Recommended. A rare look at the traditional music of Hispanic (Chicano/Chicana - Latino/Latina) people in America's Southwest, which continues to be played at state fairs and dance halls as it has been for generations." -National Media Review
This classic program is a musical time capsule, capturing the traditional music of Hispanic (Chicano/Chicana - Latino/Latina) people in America's Southwest; it features rare performances by Tiny Morrie, Al Hurricane, and Debbie Martinez. We discover the picturesque ballads and songs of everyday life, passed along through parents and grandparents, have teen blended with pulsing rhythms and melodies from contemporary Latin sounds. Here we are taken to the dimly lit dance halls, to state fairs bustling with hot dog stand stands and prize-winning livestock, and out across mesas covered with chamisa and cactus to experience small town, Friday night dances. 81/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
