In this Episode we look back at how Conjunto Music evolved from Mexican ranchero music and German Polka Music in Texas. We examine the Jimenez family called the First Family of the Accordion as first Patricio, then his son Santiago, then his sons Flaco Jimenez and Santiago Jimenez Jr. helped create this style of music and have kept it alive for the last hundred years. Our interview is with drummer Ernie Durawa, who played with Flaco for many years in The Texas Tornados and other projects. The final segment is a music clip of Ernie and guitarist Murali Coryell playing a live rendition of his song "Tejanos" featuring a drum solo by Ernie Durawa.
