This paper will examine my Mexican American cultural background and how it affects my way of communicating with others. The Mexican American society is rich with culture, traditions, folklore, and religion. These major influences are especially seen in the Los Angeles area. This area is rich in music, food, and customs of the Mexican culture. Here is where the majority of the Spanish language is spoken.
The country that I have chosen to write about is Mexico. Mexico is highly traditional and emphasizes family living. As I explored the Mexican culture I have determined that Mexico’s culture is made up most of collectivism. Mexican’s due value individualism.

Salsa music does integrate Cuban influences; however, it was founded in New York by the Puerto Rican community (“Costa Rican Music,” n.d.). Mexico, being one of the hot-spots for Latin American music, has its own influence on Costa Rican music. Genres like Ranchera, Corrido, and Norteno can be heard throughout Costa Rica. One of the most famous Ranchera singers, while not accepted for being homosexual, came from Costa Rica.

Interpreter: Roberto Junior y Su Bandeño Classification: Dance I think this genre has its ups and downs, because of its big influence in Mexico’s society. It has this huge impact that even our president, Enrique Peña Nieto, named Julión Álvarez “a big example for the Mexican youth” creating disturb and discussions because this singer sang “narco corridos” in his early years, and also, there are a lot of inspirations in Mexico that do not have their right recognition as Julión Álvarez. It is crucial to guide these musical authors to a good direction if we want our society to grow mentally and turn Mexican regional music a factor less for violence, homicides, drug traffic, misogyny, sexism and promiscuity. It is part of our culture and it says a lot of us. In my honest opinion, this genre it is not my favorite, however, I would give it a chance if the lyrics were not so bad.
From our customs to the way we dress, it is all part of our culture. I come from a town by the name of Leon Guanajuato, in Mexico. This country can be classified as a third world country because of the ridiculous amount of people who become substandard day by day. Needles to say, those who are wealthy become it through corrupt ways. Life in Mexico is hard enough because of all the blackmailing that goes on, and our culture is just another difficult hurdle that we must jump over.

She was called La reina Tejana del bolero; which was the genre she mostly recorded. Rosita Fernández was also a successful artist, offering something new: Songs both in English and Spanish. Women were the strongest pillar of Tejano music and their impact has left a clear footprint in music in general. Notwithstanding, Tejano music has not been the only genre developed in the Texas area by the Mexican Americans. Jazz, a music considered truly ‘American’; a mix of African-American rhythms such as ragtime, blues and gospel, has also been interpreted by the community, ingrained with their own style, their own sabor.
(2013), the values and virtues in Mexico include and are not limited to large families which values taking responsibilities as family members and making an extended family tie like friends and cousins. In Mexico, the culture is enmeshed in practices that tend to host parties and organizes for family occasions, picnics, and plays that enhance the tie and yoke of the Mexican families. Consequently, the vast pool of values and ways of life can be passed from one generation to another through aspects of ensuring that the societies and families maintain a secure connection that brings them together to embrace their culture and values. In Mexico, the family units are large and tend to allude to the traditional roles which overwhelmingly support gender roles and some forms of day-to-day family involvement. The Mexican cuisines vary by family and current affiliations of the community.
