Los Fronterizos de Matamoros and Grupo Sensacion recording session.

Los Fronterizos de Matamoros and Grupo Sensacion recording session.

Date
1995-04-09
Description
One DAT tape. The recording session took place at the home of Emilo Hernandez (a Chicano band leader), and was set up by Tomas Granado. The first band, Los Fronterizos (The Bordermen), played conjunto music and were comprised of Felix Cortez (bajo sexto), Felix Cortez, Jr. (accordion), Eduardo Cortinas (drums), Eleazar Cortez (drums), and Jesus Cortez Jr. (bass). They were a popular local band. Jesus, Sr., the band leader and accoridonist, worked as a bartender. The other band was Grupo Sensacion, a five-member Tejano/pop band led by Jose Luis Velasquez (singer/keyboard player). His daughter, Julissa Lissette also sang for the band. The Mexican American Music Survey was created to document the musical traditions of Florida's various Mexican-American communities: Apopka, South Dade County, Immokalee, the St. Johns River Basin, and Central Florida. Funded by a grant from the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Community Folklife Program, the survey was conducted between 1994 and 1996 by folklorist Robert Stone. Among the musical traditions were serenatas, conjunto, quinceanara ritual music, ranchera Michoacana, mariachi, norteno, Tejano, and pop music. At the end of the project, a sampler music tape was created by the Florida Folklife Program for distribution to various libraries.

Description
Three reel to reel tapes (also on C86-121, C86-122 and C86-123) Recordings of music performances at the El Grito, the performance kick-off for Mexican Independence Day. Familia Mora Arriaga plays ranchera and mariachi music. Quinto Poder plays cumbias, polkas, and corridos. While the event celebrated actually occurred on 16 September 1810, most Mexican American communties begin observations on the 15 September with an El Grito -- a celebration featuring parades, music, and dancing. The Metro-Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
