La Reina Santa Selena (amen) made an old-school educational video about Mexican-American music. Seriously, why wasn’t this shown in all schools across the USA?
In it, she shows kids the history of Tejano & Mexican American music in Texas and California.
No lie. She digs really deep into how the Mexican Revolution, immigration, Mexican-American War, and the Texas Revolution all shaped music as we know it today…well in the 90s.
Here are a few nuggets:
Her classroom transforms into a dance floor!
Preach Selena. PREACH!
Norteño = Northern Mexico
Mueve las caderas, girl!
She even pretends to be in a California earthquake!
RIP, Selena. 🙁
