Listen to the sounds made by local Conjunto musicians that play in formal and informal venues wherever anyone will listen. What you will discover is the joined strains of the traditional Mexican Bajo sexton, a 12-string bass guitar, and the button accordion – brought to Texas by early German settlers- that makes up this lively genre of ethnic folk music most often associated with Tejano migrant workers.
