Description
Three DAT tapes. (#21 was a dupe of #20). This is a recording of Xochitl Moreno's quinceanara (a celebration of young woman's 15th birthday). She was the daughter of Tirso and Blanca Moreno. Music performers included a flutist, a mariachi performer, violinist, and a singer. Grupo Elegancia performed during the reception. 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.
