The Texas Tornados

The Texas Tornados brought together four musicians who crossed musical and ethnic boundaries: Freddy Fender (from San Benito), Flaco Jiménez, Augie Meyers, and Doug Sahm (all from San Antonio). Fusing rock, country, and various Mexican styles, their music demonstrated this diversity and won them a Grammy for “Best Mexican/American Performance” in 1990.
