about us

Native Winds Radio KWNZ-DB is the newest station in Taos, New Mexico, playing the best in Tejano, Conjunto, Regional Mexican, Native American, and Country music. From the old favorites to the new releases, Our goal is to showcase the best in all genres of music by eliminating musical borders and breaking genre barriers with a conscious effort to promote Unity, Community, and our fantastic Culture.

Native Winds Radio was created in late 2022 by Aaron “Tex” Gonzales (Owner of Tex Sound Music) and Daniel Cordova (Recording Artist).

After a discussion about Texas and New Mexican Culture and music, both agreed there was a lack of Unity between many bordering states regarding the Latin music genres. The lack of Unity has been hurting the advancement of the Latin genres for years. So the vision of Native Winds Radio was born. A station with an effort to embrace Native American Heritage, Mexican Culture, and our American Spirit.

Native Winds Radio, plays the best in New Mexico, Tejano, Conjunto, Regional Mexican, Native American, and Country music.
