VIDEO: Sinton Pirates Celebrate 4A Championship by Singing ‘Tragos Amargos’
Recently, I have started to see a lot of stories about how our youth is a generation that is proud of their Tejano and Proud roots and it is so awesome to see. Here is another fine example. The Sinton Pirates had a lot to celebrate. 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!
Last month, 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.
