Description
Norteño music is named for its origin in northern Mexico. At the heart of this colorful style is the diatonic button accordion. Tomás Granado of Webster, Florida is recognized throughout the state as a master norteño accordionist, and serves as a tireless promoter of Mexican-American culture. He began to play the accordion when he was 11, and by 1970 had formed a band in Homestead to play for community dances, quinceañearas, Mother's Day serenades, and cultural celebrations throughout southern Florida. He taught button accordion through the Florida Folklife Apprenticeship Program in 1992, and continues to teach those who seek his expertise. Latin American musicians throughout the state rely upon Granado to keep their accordions functioning and in tune, as he is one of few in the state who can do so. He received the Florida Folk Heritage Award in 2007.
