Diario La Estrella, Posted: Aug 18, 2008

DALLASSince Tejano music queen Selena was killed 15 years ago, Tejano radio stations in major markets have been shut down, reports Diario La Estrella. But at this weekends National Convention of Texas Music, Aug. 15 to 17, Tejano fans converged in Dallas to celebrate and promote the style of music that continues to influence generations of Latinos. Because Tejano music has disappeared from the airwaves, fans say they are turning to Internet sites like TexMexFm.com to hear the latest artists. Tejano music, a genre particular to southern Texas and northern Mexico, is very popular among Mexican Americans and remains a symbol of identity for many Latinos, reports Diario La Estrella.
