Why do we call it Norteno? Does the music in Northern Mexico sound more different than the music in Southern Mexico? I'm just asking for a friend, lol

I'm no expert but living in Mexico City for a couple of years in the late 80's I noticed that oddly enough the music of choice was tropical in nature.  Salsa was HUGE in Mexico City, you didn't hear much accordion and bajo over there.  I know it changed a bit after i left.  I think the Mexicna accordion and bajo music (Norteño) was originally most popular in the northern region of Mexico (Monterrey to the border?).  And of course, we can also get into the whole norteño/conjunto, we didn't cross the border/the border crossed us and who used the accordion and bajo first debate lol. 
Hope it helped!

I read some where that the Europeans, Germans, Czechs, etc... that migrated to Mexico in the 1800's settled mainly in what is now Texas and Northern Mexico. They brought with them their Polka driven music  and the Tejanos amd Mejicanos from that region adopted the music and gave it their own flavor., thus Tejano/Conjunto/Norteno.[biggrin] Many of them left during the revolution but some stayed. I believe there is a community near Mexico City where approximately 40,000 German Mexicans reside.

It's because that was the dominant form of music in that region. That's why the genre "Regional Mexicano" exists. For example, On the west coast of Mexico banda, tamborazo and mariachi are dominant. Not to say that norteño doesn't exist or that no one listens to it, but it falls second to any of those depending on the region you're in. On the east coast it'll fall second to marimba or arpa jaorcha, depending on where you go.

Just like here in the USA. We have Rock, Country, Blue Grass. Heavy Metal, Cajun, Classical etc... Just depends on what part of the country one is referring to that makes it  the dominant genre![biggrin]

I agree with everything everyone has said - It is like food. The enchiladas from Texas to California are really different than the ones you get in Southern mexico, in fact cooking in general seems really different to me south to north.

I cant help it friends I am always thinking about food
