Singer AB Quintanilla performing at the Billboard Mexican Music Awards
at the Dolby Theater, October 9, 2013

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! :)
