Retroshot: Billboard Guide to regional Mexican/Tejano

Hard to believe it's been 10 years since the "Billboard Guide to Tejano and Regional Mexican Music" was published by New York's Billboard Books. It is a massive, thorough and exhausting reference work on the influence of regional Mexican and Tejano groups. Who mattered, and why, their contributions and legacy, all is covered in this ground-breaking book.

Billboard Releases a Guide To Tejano and Regional Mexican Music

Ritmo Latino
By Berenice Cisneros

Latin music in America has had many faces, most notably with Latin pop artists such as Gloria Estéfan, Julio Iglesias, Tito Puente and

 more. But who are all those other artists who are winning awards in the popular Tejano and Mexican/American music categories, selling millions of records each year, but remain on the fringes of mainstream popularity? Who are Grammy winning artists Little Joe, Flaco Jiménez, Selena and Los Super Seven, and how have they impacted American and Mexican music?

Reprinted from www.laprensa-sandiego.org

The Billboard Guide to Tejano and Regional Mexican Music by Ramiro Burr (Billboard Books, Paperback, $18.95, May 1999) is a first of its kind comprehensive behind the scenes look at the burgeoning Tejano music industry. For music spawned around the turn of the century, growing stronger and diversifying with each passing generation, the book is a detailing of Tejano music and its subgenres of Conjunto, Norteño, Mariachi/Ranchera and Trío/Bolero.

A resource for both the layman and most knowledgeable music industry insider, The Billboard Guide is a documentation of artists and bands who have shaped modern Tejano music. Illustrated with photos of artists who have made their mark on the Tejano music industry, the sourcebook covers more than 300 artists/bands, includes a glossary of music terms and Spanish words, a chronology of historical events, an insightful chapter on the history of Tejano music.

This music is, today, the choice of fans across the country and more notably, in its hometown territory of the American Southwest where its popularity has led to the succcess of the Tejano Music Awards, the South By Southwest Music Conference, The Tejano Music Hall of Fame, The Conjunto Music Hall of Fame and the annual Conjunto Festival in San Antonio, Texas, to name a few. In 1999, the Grammy Awards honored Tejano music artists with a Grammy in their own category for the first time, justifying the force and prominence of the genre.

The author Ramiro Burr is a 14 year veteran of music reporting in rock/pop/country and Latin music genres. A former staff writer at the San Antonio Express-News, Burr is also a correspondent for Billboard Magazine and a freelance writer for Latina, Cashbox, New Country Music, Texas Monthly, and many others. Burr is a contributing writer on World Music: The Rough Guide and also contributed a chapter on Latin music for the Hispanic Almanac. Ramiro Burr resides in San Antonio, Texas.

Originaly printed June 18, 1999
