Tejano Lippz is an Internet Radio Station founded through our non-profit A-Team sponsorship with the collaboration of Sylvia Harrelson, Sidalia Mendoza, and Gabriel Rios, in memory of Arnie Almaguer. Arnie Almaguer was very instrumental in bringing Tejano to Northern Cali and was an amazing accordionist who lost his life to early. Tejano Lippz believes that by keeping Arnies memory alive, we are keeping Tejano music alive.
The desire of every one directly connected to both A-Team and Tejano Lippz is to support and promote Tejano artists, while spreading unity among our people. Along the way, we do our part to ensure that our culture is alive and kicking so that our younger generations do not lose touch with the beauty of our music and our culture. The support that has been felt within the Tejano community, our friends, and family in this endeavor is truly humbling and we are blessed to be in the middle of this circle that is much bigger than us because it’s not about us.
Tejano Lippz is broadcasting right from the comfortable surroundings of our home and will play our favorite music for friends and family and be a promoter of Tejano music. We will be a significant informant and entertainer for our local community, starting in our town ending at the other side of the world.
The decision to become nonprofit comes from the fact that our first principle is to educate our community about our Tejano culture. With education comes knowledge to teach our young children about our culture. We also will strive to help up and coming artist to succeed, so they can carry the torch of our legends who have carried torch of the ones who passed it to them.
