Orquestas de cuerdas were small string ensembles (usually trios or quartets) that played dance music at social functions in venues ranging from saloons to ballrooms. The ensembles were usually composed of one or two violins, with a mandolin or guitar often serving as the lead instrument. The bands were most popular in northern Mexico and along the Texas-Mexico border. This collection is the companion album to Orquestas Típicas (1926–1938): Pioneer Mexican-American Dance Orchestras (ARH07017).
