Say you have a scene set on a South Texas ranch and you need the right music.

Should you use Norteno or Tejano music—and what’s the difference?


If it takes place in a traditional, rural, or even period Mexican setting,

a Norteño song will be the way to go.

While Norteño, Tejano or Tex-Mex styles are all driven by accordion and vocals,

the Norteño sound will express a more raw, grassroots feel.


On the other hand, the Tejano or Tex-Mex style, with its fusion Pop sound, will feel more contemporary. This is due to its up-to-date instrumentation, like electric guitars, full drum set, sax, synthesizer sounds, and today’s Pop chord progressions—a clear choice but each flowing from a rich, northern Mexican creative heritage.
