Per NPR: "How Mexico Learned to Polka" It is largely a story of immigration in the late 19th century. A perfect cultural match-up of Waltzes & Polkas from Germans and Czech immigrants that came and settled in Northern Mexico. They brought with them two cultural staples the "accordion" & "beer". The blend of music wasn't born from Mexican and Eastern European "jam sessions", Mexicans learned it from a distance and made it their own". LINK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wSSTuDWQo8
