Graciela Hinojosa Holguín & Jorge Holguín (Part 2, English)

A dancer and a musician, this couple has been a part of the history of Mexican traditional musics in the LA area for more than half a century! We interview them in a double episode.

SUMMARY OF RESEARCH SOURCES

The great majority of sources about twentieth-century Mexican music in Los Angeles are in English. In order not to present two very different-sized bibliographies, we have combined them here into a single document.

El Mestizaje

A great deal has been written (and debated) around this theme; even a representative bibliography is not within the scope of this document. We offer here just a couple of classic sources, in which the idea of Mexican national identity as a “mixture” was developed.
