A Texas-Mexican Cancionero: Folksongs of the Lower Border

Front Cover
University of Texas Press, 1976 - Music - 194 pages
0 Reviews

The folksongs of Texas's Mexican population pulsate with the lives of folk heroes, gringos, smugglers, generals, jailbirds, and beautiful women. In his cancionero, or songbook, Américo Paredes presents sixty-six of these songs in bilingual text—along with their music, notes on tempo and performance, and discography. Manuel Peña's new foreword situates these songs within the main currents of Mexican American music.
