In 1884, Payen's Eighth Cavalry Mexican Band performed to great acclaim at the New Orleans World Cotton Centennial Exposition, setting off a popular craze for Mexican and Cuban music in the city. This collection contains forty-eight pieces of sheet music performed at the Exposition or written by Mexican composers who worked in Louisiana in the late 19th century.
