Banda

Popular in Northern Mexico since the late 1960s, Banda music exploded in popularity in the late 1990s all over Mexico and in particular in the Southwest United States, primarily in Texas and California but not excluding other states like Iowa, Kansas, and Illinois. Thanks to the rapidly rising popularity of La Banda Sinaloense, the genre of Banda music has taken on a different role.

Bandas are made up of a number of brass instruments, its most notable being la tambora and trompeta.
