Accordion ever gonna make a comeback?

Recommended Posts

I wish I knew piano accordion, I know it’s still popular in Mexico, Brazil, Central America, Argentina, and Malaysia.

here’s some Malay examples

For now, I use keyboard patches as an accordion sound, but it sounds static without volume control.

I am an accordion player' date=' and it is a beautiful instrument.  It really carries the stigma of being a "polka" instrument even though there are a lot of other styles of music that can be played.  I personally hate polka, so this is a bit discouraging.  Anybody else noticed this?

[/quote']Agree they are beautiful sounding instruments - very evocative and full of nostalgia.No need to come back. They are still here. Cajun dance music and esp., French / Italian music.Play that stuff and make beautiful music. To hell w/ what American market wants.

Zydeco, Tejano, Klezmer, all great sounds that use accordions.

I have been listening to a lot of BGKO lately, great stuff.
