[ARCHIVED] CONJUNTO IN MY BACKYARD

Conjunto in my Backyard

This exhibition celebrates Conjunto Music and explores its origins, its impact on the region, and how this beloved musical genre continues to inspire generations to come.

The San Benito Cultural Heritage Museum is collaborating with the Texas Conjunto Hall of Fame & Museum by showcasing part of their permanent collection. A selection of their Hall of Fame Inductees, recording equipment, and musical instruments will be on display.

Items on loan from the Narciso Martinez Family will also be on display. Narciso Martínez, known as the “father” of the Texas-Mexican Conjunto, began recording in the 1930s and continued performing into the 1990s. His powerful and fast playing earned him the nickname “El Huracan Del Valle” or the “Hurricane of the Valley.” Along with the historical items on display, artwork by Cande Aguilar, Roel Flores, Gina Palacios, Adrian “Serkit” Rodriguez, Julian Rodriguez, Anna Marie Varela and Benjamin Varela. The work is inspired by Conjunto music and is also included in this multifaceted exhibition.
