From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Regional Mexican is a Latin music radio format, typically including Banda, Conjunto, Corridos, Duranguense, Grupero, Huapango, Mariachi, New Mexico music, Norteña, Ranchera, and Tejano music.[1] It is the most popular radio format targeting Hispanic Americans in the United States.[2]

The large number of immigrants from Northern Mexico can lead to an emphasis upon Norteña on Regional Mexican radio stations,[1] though markets with larger Hispanic audiences can have multiple stations. Regional Mexican music includes a number of subgenres, with each one varying in what region it originated and also varying in what regions each one is popular.

Festival RegiMex is a festival that was launched in 2012 to celebrate the Regional Mexican Music genre of music.
