Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Cornelio Reyna Tribute

NorteƱo legend Cornelio Reyna's friends get together every year to pay tribute to the man the paved the way for so many. I'm not exactly sure how many years ago he died, but people loved him. He was part of "Los Relampagos" with Ramon Ayala. My dad tells me that at the time they were playing very different music than anyone else. Yesterday, thousands of fans and peers came together for an all day celebration near a Cantina where these men used to play. They do this every year.

Apparently it's a huge thing. I've heard Cornelio Reyna's music and I like it - so even if I don't know to much about them, I thought I'd mention it.

I am such a huge fan of Cornelio Reyna. I have nearly every compact disc he recorded. Cornelio Reyna died on January 23, 1997. He died of a heart attack at a hospital in Mexico City, Mexico. I have been listening to his music for 7 years.

Adios dear friend,
Yours truly,
Adrian Cavazos
