Welcome to Mr Chris' Blog. Here you'll find the words, thoughts, observations and news from Chris Strachwitz, founder and President of Arhoolie Records and President of the Arhoolie Foundation.


  1. Hey Chris!!
    Can't wait for you to share your insights!

  2. OK, Chris . . . Dick Waterman is on board . . .

  3. Great blog, and I'll check it often.

    My heart is still in El Cerrito and the Bay Area music of my day there (1943-1960), and thanks to Arhoolie Records, I can enjoy the conjunto music I remember from Yolo County and our annual trips to villages in Sinaloa/Jalisco.

    All your records, so far, are great.

    Keep up the good work.
