‘Reconcito En El Cielo’ Performed by Texas H.S Conjunto Group at Pep Rally
Here is a story that makes us all proud as Tejano's and Tejanita's! Many schools in South Texas have added our Tejano culture into their classroom culture and here is an awesome example. The Edinburg North High School Conjunto Group performed 'Reconcito En El Cielo' this past Friday's pep rally. It must have worked because the Edinburg North Cougars won big time, 28-0, and also won the district as well. Congratulations. I would love to see this happen in the Victoria school district, wouldn't you?
This is not the only time, that we have seen our youth celebrate by representing our culture! Back in June the Sinton Pirates also went viral for celebrating by singing along to some Ramon Ayala. The No. 1 ranked Pirates showcased the firepower they became known for this season in a 9-0 rout of Argyle in a Class 4A state championship victory at Disch-Falk Field.
As reported by the Caller-Times. This was also the first Championship in the school's baseball history. So they had a lot to celebrate! How did they celebrate? By signing the legendary Ramon Ayala hit 'Tragos Amargos' on the bus ride home. The video is absolutely incredible to see a bunch of high school boys singing this song. . Congratulations to the State Champion, Sinton Pirates!
Earlier this year, I also wrote about an Elementary school in the valley that has a Conjunto music program. Another amazing example of how La Onda has made it to the next generation. One elementary school in Edinburg, Texas is actually offering a class that teaches about Conjunto music. It was actually a student's idea. Read more by clicking here.
