GUEST,livingandlearning Mexican Music - German Origins? (41) RE: Mexican Music - German Origins? 16 Dec 11


Pflugerville Texas is named after the famous Pfluger family that stole..uhm...murdered...uh...settled the land after the native indians were uhm...slaughtered...uh...gracefully removed from the area with care and compassion (not really) slightly north of Austin Texas. Each year at the end of May they celebrate their German heritage. The real question is where did Germans get the accordian?

Seems the accordian began development in China. As trade routes opened the accordian developed more as adjustments were made to it until the accordian we have today appeared. I am not taking away the German influence--only suggestion that Mexicans somehow stole the accordian from Germans and now Germans are making a claim on Mexican music. If that is the case, then the Chinese should make their claim on the German accordian.
