It may not be a winter wonderland, but Christmastime in Texas still evokes fond holiday memories for native Texan and singer-songwriter Tish Hinojosa. As the youngest of 13 siblings, she remembers her family making tamales on warm but festive days in San Antonio.

Throughout her musical career, which spans more than 20 years, Hinojosa recorded a couple of bilingual Christmas albums including “From Texas to a Christmas Night.” The music highlights the uniquely bicultural holiday season that many Texans celebrate.

She didn’t always have a Tex-Mex Christmas, though. In 2005, Hinojosa moved to Germany, where she lived for nearly a decade before recently returning to the Lone Star State. Now, the veteran singer-songwriter has immersed herself back into Austin’s live music scene. Hinojosa’s upcoming shows are listed on her website mundotish.com.
