Los Pinkys

Profile:
A Texas-style dance band from Austin, Texas that plays down-home conjunto music.

Dubbed by many as the Buena Vista Social Club of Austin's conjunto music scene, Conjunto Los Pinkys, like the music they create, are a multi-generational, cosmic hybrid of American, European, Mexican, Texan and Tejano musical cultures. The music includes a variety of traditional influences from the Texas-German brass melodies, Czech polka, Polish mazurka and oberek, Spanish pasodobles and poetic verses, plus the flavors of Northern Mexico norteno music, Colombian cumbia and popular American music. With a heavy mix of danceable, polka-beat rancheras, the older musical forms, like classic redovas, valses, shotis (shottische) are also played along side romantic boleros, tropical cumbias and whirling, 6/8 time huapangos.
