When I see things like this I wonder what effect the German culture has had on the music and food of the areas as well.
We were just in Mazatlan where "Banda Music" is very popular. When I asked where it comes from I was told it's a mix of Marching band and traditional Mexican musics.
I don't know if that's accurate but it sounds like it.
Anyway didn't mean to hijack the thread, but the mix of cultures is something I love.
