This needs a new title, I think. Tuf-Kat 01:45, Mar 18, 2005 (UTC)[edit]

Is there anyway can get a link in there? We're a Internet Stream that plays only Tejano Music, 24/7!

Ozzfest is a metal festival. When did a Tejano band ever play?

Need articles for some of the key figures etc.[edit]

No article for Narciso Martínez? Wow. Also, we're may need an article for Ideal Records down the line. I'm not qualified to write either one; I like Tejano, but I'm no musicologist. Someone here ready to "step up to the plate"? Lawikitejana 16:31, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Speaking in tongues[edit]

The article says, "in the Korean language of some parts of Spain, particularly Catalonia.". Huh? Somebody fix this? Trekphiler 14:37, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Kumbia Kings[edit]

The Kumbia Kings played cumbias hence there name, There name should be taken off the opening paragraph.--Redspork02 (talk) 18:33, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

All Tejano Radio station links should be valid for inclusion on the article. Please stop removing the Tejano Radio Links you are hindering the music growth... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:49, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Lantana Band of Corpus Christi[edit]

Not many people know of how the Lantana band helped Selena and the Dinos. In the early '8os Lantana would lend the Dinos microphones,    stands, monitors and other basic equipment needed for gigs.Who was the Lantana Band? They were one of the busiest bands in Corpus Christi. They held a Number 1 hit on many local stations for almost a month straight. Lantana Band also had several other Number 1 hits in their seven year run. Though the band was a local only type of band,their recordings were played through out the country. It's a shame that their name has gone unmentioned in any of Tejano Music who's who.Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).

Picture of Selena[edit]

Anybody here has a free from copyright picture of Selena we can use in this article? KarniFro( Talk to me) 15:44, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't think it is fair to use a copyrighted image only in one article. If they think it violated copyright, then why they don't just delete it? I think it's safe to add it back??? KarniFro( Talk to me) 20:09, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
If nobody officially opposes this I think it will be safe to add it back... KarniFro( Talk to me) 17:47, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

How sure are we that the polka comes from Germans? I mean, the polka type of music spread throughout Europe. Maybe the Basques brought this sort of sound to the region. And in reality it may have been the Trikiti that was used. If you look into the Basque Txaranga or charanga you might find further connections between Mexican culture and Basque culture. I'm just adding this because I fear that we are too quick to make things too definitive. The reality is that we don't know anything for sure. But the contribution of the Basques has been left out all too often in Mexican culture. Basuques have been all over the world; and it seems that many of them settled in the northern states of Mexico and in the U.S. midwest--like Nevada. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:11, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
