Celebrating San Antonio’s Conjunto Tradition
Saturday, October 13, 2018
Conjunto 300 was an official Tricentennial event held in place of our annual Tardeada at Maverick Plaza in La Villita. The event featured live music by Flaco Jimenez and other prominent conjunto bands, and a special presentation of “Conjunto Blues”, written and performed by Nicolas Valdez, chronicling the story of conjunto music in our region. The broader project also identified and paid homage to 300 individuals, venues, institutions, and events that have contributed to Conjunto music history and culture.
Thank you to Lupito Acuna, Mariaelena Arocha, Rolando Medina, and Hector Garza for documenting this special evening!
