Chulas Fronteras & Del Mero Corazón
Opens September 13, 2019
Chulas Fronteras is a zesty introduction to Norteña music and culture that exists along the Texas-Mexican border. The music is a fusion of traditional Mexican harmonies, German dancehall rhythms and a little something extra.
Chulas Fronteras will be followed by the short Del Mero Corazón
