Best Tejano Bands/Artists

The roots of Tejano music are as widespread and diverse as the traditions of the people that invented it. The main root of Tejano or Tex-Mex music is Mexico, where most Tejano artists originated from - but that is only half of the story. Tejano bands are also heavily influenced by the culture of their adopted homeland of South and Central Texas. While most Tejano singers hail from Mexico, it is in the United States where Tejano singers like Carlos Santana, Los Lonely Boys, and female Tejano singers like Selena, "The Queen of Tejano" developed their songs and became internationally known.
