"nothing played on the accordion is really music."

Woah podnah!! Here in Texas the accordion as played by the Tejano and Norteno groups is a revered instrument. Ever hear of Ramon Ayala? He has millions of fans all over Mexico and the southwest US. Of course we in Texas have the world famous Flaco Jiminez here in San Antonio. Flaco, his brother and their father are renown accordionistas. Listen to the CD Los Super Seven, which won a Grammy last year. Its fantastic!

You need to expand your accordion-thinking beyond polkas. Ever listen to real Zydeco?
