Sundays, Sept. 25, Oct. 23 & Nov. 27, 5 – 7 pm 

Discover a special Houston musical heritage with Tejas Got Soul at Discovery Green: three free concerts made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.

From the 1960s, when Houston’s Chicano musicians, inspired by the soul, blues and zydeco traditions of Bayou City, crafted a “brown-eyed soul” sound that influenced the Conjunto and Tejano groups that followed, Houston’s Chicano music legacy is distinctive. Enjoy free concerts from bands that exemplify the history and promise of Tejas Got Soul.
