THE CHICANO WAVE. It is a history of Mexican Americans told through the evolution of Chicano music. It is the third hour of the four hour nationally broadcast PBS series LATIN MUSIC USA. The film features Ritchie Valens, Selena, Freddy Fender, Linda Ronstadt, Los Tigres del Norte and Los Lobos among others. It lays out a hard hitting social history through the lives of Chicano musicians, but in a package that is informative and enjoyable.
