Description

Conjunto — the traditional music of South Texas — dates back to the end of the 19th century. European settlers moved into the area with their button accordions and began ‘making music' with Mexican settlers who favored the bajo sexto (a lower sixth bass guitar traditionally used in Norteño music). The results were magical, and became the signature sound of South Texas — particularly San Antonio.

Conjunto is as ‘Texas as the two-step' and as ‘San Antonio as the Alamo'. Many of the genre's pioneers lived, worked, performed and recorded in San Antonio. Conjunto legends Flaco Jimenez, Bene Medina, and Mingo Saldivar continue to perform in and around San Antonio.
