Michael Salgado


Tejano star and accordionist Michael Salgado gained prominence in the mid-1990s by looking back to the norteño sound and by subsequently introducing the style to the younger generation.

In November 2016, Salgado won the Latin Grammy for best Tejano album for “Por Cielo Y Tierra.” The award marked the second time Salgado has won in the category; the last time came 10 years ago. Also in November 2016, he won male vocalist of the year and norteño album of the year at the Tejano Music Awards.
