Duranguense Sub-culture in El Paso Part 1

This weekend me and my family were invited to two quinceaneras.Both my old friends of the family and I was excited to see kids all grown up. One of them was at a Church hall on the Lower Valley which was very much like any quince I had seen. The second one I went to was so different to what I was used to that i was freaking out. it was a quince... Duranguense Style! You might be wondering, what is that? So here's the scoop on the Duranguense culture!

As you can see by the pictures below the style has the pointy boots and the belt plus the matching hat. The girls that feel risque wear their button down shirt to show their bellies.I have seen hats autographed hats buy famous Duranguense hats like Alacranes Musical and K-Paz de la Sierra.The men shave their sideburns with musical treble clefs to signify "musical". I also included a video of the dance! Sice I will investigate deeply into the culture this will be part 1. Enjoy!!v=SbDnO9tLVB8&feature=related
