Wow, he plays a "Panther". You see, if one knows what one does and does it well, truly doesn't matter which accordion you play.  My thoughts only...Chuco

ANTONIO TANGUMA GUAJARDO (q.e.p.d.)

Nació en 1903 en China, N.L., Fueron sus padres, Teófilo Tanguma, originario de General Bravo y Victoria Guajardo de China N.L.

Plática del Maestro Tanguma
Un día de 1927, me ofrecieron un acordeoncito de dos hileras de botones; me lo vendian en veinte pesos, muy barato. Le pedí a don Guillermo García Welsh, mi patrón, el dinero y me dijo: "Pá que los quieres pela'o?, mejor ponte a trabajar, después ahí te echas a perder con la música". Como quiera me los prestó y compré el acordeón que se veía bonito, pero como yo no conocía, resulta que el acordeón era un chasco. De todos modos, empecé a darle de día y de noche. Como ensayaba también en la casa, los dueños me decían: "Mira, agarra tu tequila y vete al monte a tocarle a los pájaros". El acordeón no me duró mucho y así me di cuenta que me engañaron con la venta, de cualquier forma le enganchaba alambritos y lo hacía cantar.

Yo segía trabajando en la labor, nomás soñando en juntar unos centavitos para irme a Estados Unidos y comprar un instrumento a mi gusto. Un día que me levanto, me agarro unas tortillas y una botella con agua y me voy para Terán, a pie. Hice tres días hasta los Ramones y en la estación del tren la pregunté al boletero, hasta dónde me alcanza con dos pesos?, voy rumbo a Reynosa. El boletero me dijo; "son uno ochenta y cinco hasta Anzaldúas". Pues sí, ahí me bajaron y me fuí directo a la frontera que ya estaba muy cerca. Llegué a Corrales y corrí a un estanquillo para comprar galletas, el hombre que despachaba me vió y me dijo "Para dónde vas?", ya le expliqué que quería pasar el río y tuve tanta suerte que el señor al verme hambriento y en huaraches me dió de cenar, me permitió bañarme y hasta zapatos me regaló. Total que él mismo me recomendó con unos muchachos que me pasaron al otro lado y me llevaron a un rancho, donde el dueño me contrató para desenralzar y tumbar mezquitez. Así junté doce dólares, hasta que supe que en la feria de Laredo vendían un acordeón, fui y lo compré. Me costó diez dólares, regresé al rancho cantando y tocando. Los muchachos nomás oyeron el acordeón y se arrimaron unas botellas de vino y ahí mismo si hizo la tocada. Estamos hablando de 1917 que fue el año de mi primer acordeón bueno, porque luego compré do más en Corpus Christi; andaba que me volvía loco de gusto.
 
En 1932 me fuí a China, Nuevo León, y en 1938 para Monterrey. Tenía 35 años de edad.
 
En realidad mis primeras composiciones las traje siempre en la mente, porque cuando trabajaba en la labor, me inventaba tonadas y las repetía silbando. En 1938 terminé la primera pieza; De China a Bravo. Ese nombre you no se lo puse, pero como la pasaba viajando de China a Bravo, así se le fue quedando, fueron unos músicos que me acompañaban los que la titularon. Hasta la fecha, he compuesto más de cincuenta composiciones y las que han pegado más son; El cerro de la Silla, Evangelina, Naranjo, Blanca Nelly, María de Lourdes y otras. Mucha gente me pregunta por qué tanto nombre de mujer. Será porque los nombres de las mujeres me gustan tanto.

En 1945 me fuí a México, pero, de todas las cantinas y restaurantes me sacaban, pues el acordeón no gustaba todavía. Un día unos amigos policías de Los Herreras, Nuevo León, se metieron conmigo a un restaurante, ahí en la ciudad de México, y me pidieron que tocara. Apenas me estaba calentando cuando el mesero nos dijo: "Oiga, aquí no se puede tocar". El más grandote de los policías le contestó: "Nosotros somos de Nuevo León y este hombre del acordeón es Tanguma y su música es tan buena que donde quiera se le debe escuchar": y como mientras contestaba le enseño las pistolas... tuvieron que escucharnos toda la tarde.

Lo que pasaba era que la música norteña apenas estaba naciendo, y en la mayoría de los estados del centro y sur, no se conocía. Por eso a mí me gusta Nuevo León, porque en cualquier rancho adoran el acordeón y el contrabajo.

No se necesitaban muchos músicos para amenizan un buen baile.

Desde 1938 que me dedique de lleno al oficio de la tocada empezó a irme bien, aunque no pagaban lo suficiente, podía mantener a mi familia. Ya nomás con juntar para los frijolitos, lo demás era ganancia. Al principio me acostumbré a tocar sólo porque había muy pocos guitarreros que me acompañaran, pero de 1940 para acá, empecé a organizar mi grupo, casi siempre tocábamos a dueto: acordeón y contrabajo.

De tódas mis composiciones, el shotís del Cerro de la Silla es la que más me gusta. Esta composición nació como un chipazo, en un rancho en las faldas del Cerro de la Silla. En la mañana quedaron unos amigos de pasar por mí para tocar en una tardeada; no llegaban y se hacía tarde; yo estaba muy desveladoy tenía mucha hambre, bueno, pues me recosté a esperar, como no queriendo, agarré el acordeón, y ya de rato me gustó lo que estaba tocando, repetí las notas y las memoricé; cuando llega el guitarrero y me dice: "Oye esa pieza es muy buena, no te la había escuchado", no hombre, dije yo, es la cruda y la sed que me están haciendo ver visiones. Tiempo depués llegaron a mi casa unos gringos de una casa disquera que me querían escuchar y les toqué el shotís que hice acerca del Cerro de la Silla; les gusto mucho, y como no tenia título, pues así se le quedó, El Cerro de la Silla. Todavía dicen muchas gentes que nomás la escuchan, y se les mueven la piernas solas, que esa piesa hace bailar a cualquiera, auque no sepan. Me gusta ese shotís, me gusta ver a los niños que lo bailan en las escuelas, en las asambleas y en los concursos escolares.

Mi vida ha sido el acordeón y mi familia. Me casé cuando tenía como treinta años: a mi esposa la conocí en un baile, muy bonita, se llama María de Jusús, me gustó desde que la ví, y me dije, yo me quedo con esa chiquilla porque ella es mucho más chica que yo; me casé con ella en 1933 y tenemos once hijos.

Ahora tengo casi los ochenta y cuando escucho un acordeón, no sé por qué, a veces me dan ganas de llorar, me da como cierto coraje que allá por los treinta, mucha gente no quería el acordeón y ahora sí. La música norteña termino imponiendo su fuerza... bendito sea Dios que el acordeón ya tiene su historia.

Antonio Tanguma Guajardo, murió el 5 de diciembre de 1989.

Es el artista de música norteña de más reconocimiento nacional e internacional. Sus polkas, redovas, shotises y huapangos, los han bailado generaciones enteras de niños, en miles de escuelas de todo el Norte del país.

In search of "Lars Ek Nostalgic Piano Accordion"
Feb., 17, 2008
Hello Everybody:
I am new to this UKAO forum. I live in the USA and I have been playing the accordion for a while. I will post a few links below.
I am looking for a specific accordion, the "Lars Ek Nostalgic" Piano Accordion, which was manufactured by Borsini a while back. I believe most were made in chromatic button style; however a few were made in the piano accordion style. If you know of someone who would be interested in selling such an accordion, please pass it along.
Meanwhile, feel free to peruse my CD and other info below.
All the best,
Zevy

Rocket-Fuelled - The Gary Blair Ceilidh Band - Hogmanay @ Stirling Castle
Feb., 17, 2008
Gary Blair @ Stirling Castle - Photo courtesy of David PalmerIt was a dreich night at the top of the town and what might well have been the best post-midnight fireworks show yet for Stirling's Hogmanay was semi-obscured by low cloud, but the big yellow Sold Out signs on the road up to the castle told their own story. A capacity 7000 crowd had recognised that Craig and Charlie's best 12-month since there was Sunshine on Leith guaranteed a rousing party at the bells. Certainly, supporting trio the Gary Blair Ceilidh Band were prepared to give their all in the cause. Invited back after last year's cancellation, they are a rocket-fuelled take on tradition: strict-time snare drumming, and fiddle and box operating at maximum velocity. Not joining in the massed bad waltzing would have been churlish and other telling contributions from the punters included a sweetly sung, non-belligerent, Flower of Scotland, and a massed jaw-drop at Blair's lightning-fingered version of Simon Jeffes's Music for a Found Harmonium. The Proclaimers are the only band in the world who can spice up Hogmanay with a song - In Recognition - condemning those named in the New Year's Honours List. Shame Hanif Kureishi wasn't there to hear it, say I. If that nice irony was lost on some, that was true of much of the early part of the set, drawn from their latest Life With You album. It was, predictably, more familiar fare like On My Way, Cap in Hand, the still-hackle-raising Letter From America, and I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) that lifted the occasion (although a few chaps could be seen looking at their shoes during Let's Get Married). Before an unusually low-pitched, if up-tempo Auld Lang Syne, however, the surprise climax was provided by the Reids' big brash cover of Wreckless Eric's Whole Wide World. Now why was that single not the international hit it deserved to be?The Herald -http://www.theherald.co.uk/

The Cumberland Hotel in Beautiful Eastbourne
Review: CD - Bits and Pieces (Tom Alexander)
Jan., 11, 2008
Tom Alexander is best known as the accordion playing half of the long established Scottish vocal/instrumental duo, The Alexander Brothers. His new, self-produced solo CD Bits and Pieces is a worthy exposition of his talents as a musician, arranger and recording engineer.  The CD presents a variety of accordion specialities and Scottish melodies – all performed and recorded to a high standard on a Hohner Gola.  The warm and rounded tones produced by Tom’s classy playing and intonation are a real pleasure to listen to, making this CD most definitely a cut above the average.In addition to being a very fine accordionist, Tom has become a master of MIDI sequencing, and the arrangements on this CD offers an array of many very convincing sounds in support of the accordion lead.  The CD opens in bright style with El Relicario, a number beloved of accordionists everywhere.  Catchy tunes abound on this recording, such as the Petite Waltz, Lady of Spain, The Dark Island and Jealousy.  Although not a Scottish dance music CD, two of the most memorable melodies are dance tunes, the Piper’s Waltz, written by Blair Douglas, and The Furrow’s End, a beautiful waltz composed by Gordon Pattullo.  On Dance of the Hours and Tristesse, Tom diverts convincingly into the classics, with the former being an orchestral treatment/arrangement whilst the latter delves into the works of Chopin.  My favourite track is the imaginatively arranged Whistling Rufus, which begins as the usual ragtime two-step, then moves into an Art Van Damme ‘lounge jazz’ mood, next into a Dixieland style, and finishes with a Jack Emblow-like freewheeling jazzy flourish – all in the space of about three minutes!All in all, this CD is a highly satisfying listening experience, thoroughly recommended for anyone who enjoys quality accordion playing.     The 20 tracks include El Relicario, Isle of My Heart, The Flowers of Edinburgh, Petite Waltz, Skye At Last, Lady of Spain, The Dark Island, Whistling Rufus, Eilean Gorm Mhuile, Dance of the Hours, Tom's Medley, Tristesse, March, Strathspey & Reel, Piper's Waltz, Jealousy, Farewell to Kintail, The Furrow's End, The Oil Rigger, Highland Cathedral and Under the Double Eagle.Available from Concorde Music, Perth – tel 01738 621 818 or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it Rob Howard
Book Review: Sights by Susanna Vance
Jan., 11, 2008
There aren’t many young adult novels involving accordions, but Bruce Triggs found one. Bruce — co-host of the excellent Accordion Noir radio show in Vancouver — penned this book review for Let’s Polka:I picked up Susanna Vance’s book Sights, because the (hardback) cover is of a girl playing accordion. I was literally on my way to the Vancouver (BC) Accordion Circle, where I was quick to show it off.Sights tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who’s had what’s euphemistically called a “tough” childhood, moving to a new school and making friends with some other outcasts and forming a band. She plays accordion… they rock… cool! I wanted her to be a big Johnny Grande fan (accordionist with Bill Haley and the Comets), but he isn’t mentioned.I was really impressed with the “sound” of the narrator (who’s name is Baby Doll). Without telling where she is from, she gives a really consistent rural USA sound to the book. I’ve lived a lot of places in America, and she sounded kind of Okie/Appalachian. I’m not sure where she’s from, but it’s really nice.It has grimmer aspects than Victoria Miles’ Magnifico, the other teen book I know with accordion content. People should be aware that it deals matter-of-factly with subjects like child abuse and adolescent sexuality, but I do recommend it. (I similarly have to remember to tell people that Annie Proulx’s Accordion Crimes is kinda violent, which I overlook in the richness of it all.)There are elements of fantasy in the story’s vision of 1950’s USA. I wouldn’t call it realistic; even the violence is rather odd. But if you’re prepared (by reading this), you should be in for a swell time.You can listen to Accordion Noir, co-hosted by Bruce Triggs and Rowan Lipkovitz, every Friday night on CFRO CO-OP Radio, 102.7 FM in Vancouver, or download episodes online at accordionnoir.org.
