Tejano: A Genre in Transition

To me, Tejano is a genre in transition, struggling to reconcile its storied past with an uncertain future. And there are two young artists in particular who symbolize the dilemma the music is facing: AJ Castillo and Chente Barrera. I'm not trying to create an artificial rivalry or anything, because I know these guys have recorded together and they probably get along really well, but the difference between the two is rather striking, in my view.

Look, I'm a guera. I don't speak a lot of Spanish (although I did pretty good when I got my haircut a few weeks ago...) And it's only been a couple of years since I started listening to Tejano. But in that short amount of time, I have fallen completely in love with it.
