The group I'm with now is starting to play more cumbias. We're kind of heading toward a more pop kind of group with the idea being that we will be playing in casinos. I haven't seen the "practice at home" concept used well with our group, so hopefully they are serious. I'm starting to feel like I should start my own group, but maybe it's just the frustration of being semi-mobile. The problem with your own group is getting people on board and then finding gigs.
People who are from the US and end up listening to Mexicano music don't understand Chicano acordeon, and then there is the deal between more traditional conjunto and modern. Lots of fun.
I'll hang out with this group for awhile and see how it goes.
