Música mexicana de un vistazo

This date of Cinco de Mayo 2014 spawned a look at Mexican culture after landing on this music history lesson as told by the famed singer Selena.

To further this lesson, I took a tour on YouTube to check out the different Mexican music styles and came up with these mixes.


Tejano music seems to offer a strong emphasis on the accordion, at least that is what can be assumed from this sampling.


Norteno music seems to have a more country music influence.


Rancheras is mixed with more of a crooner style.


Salsa and Mambo is the ultimate party music.

There you have Mexican music in a nutshell -- from a new learner.

Entre dos velas Cinco de Mayo! :)
