Corona II Flaco Jimenez Signature

It has been said that what B.B. King is to the blues or George Jones is to traditional country, Grammy-winning accordionist Flaco Jimenez is to the world of Tex-Mex Conjunto. While there are many masters of the accordion along the Texas-Mexican border, only Flaco have toured the world over and recorded with major pop, rock and country artists. By all accounts, he is an international icon for the accordion-driven Conjunto genre. The HOHNER accordion has been Flaco‘s signature sound, forming a part of his family‘s tradition; his Grandfather, Patricio Jimenez, and his legendary father, Don Santiago Jimenez Sr. also played HOHNER accordions.

Flaco‘s Conjunto style is derived from many cultural backgrounds, spanning its Tex-Mex roots to include Honky-Tonk, Country, Rock‘n‘roll and Tejano. His unique accordion playing has earned him five Grammy Awards. He continues to inspire accordionists around the world.
