Just like the tastiness of Tex-Mex food indie rock band Calexico (named after a border town) has constructed a musical sound that has a lot of flavour. A little bit mariachi, a little bit conjunto, a little bit of cumbia, and a sprinkling of Tejano music. All this adds up to Calexico.
A long and colourful history is behind this band. They formed in the early 90s and then recorded their first album for a German based label. At that time they were called Spoke and then they evolved into Calexico. Eight album releases have happened over the course of the next 17 years.
