Implacable Explodes with Acrobatic Accordion and Vocal Fireworks

Sunny Sauceda was one of Rancho Alegre Radio’s very first interviews back in 2011. He and his über-talented band, Todo Eso, made time for us after a gig at Cuauhtemoc Hall in San Marcos, and we were taken by his charisma, knowledge, and openness. Among other things, we talked about his career, the benefit of being punctual, and winning the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album for Polkas, Gritos y Acordeones, his collaboration with accordion legends David Lee Garza and Joel Guzman.

Fans and fellow musicians remember Conjunto legend, El Si Señor Ruben Naranjo. Featuring the voices of 75 different Conjunto and Tejano artists, collected through interviews from 2011 to 2013.

smart-phone friendly.
