Conjunto, Tejano Conjunto, and Other Musical Influences

The word "conjunto" is a Spanish word that refers to a musical style or genre of music, and it can also refer to a group, like one of my favorite conjuntos, Eva Ybarra y Su Conjunto. The core instruments in a Tejano Conjunto band or group include the accordion, bajo sexto, bass, and drums. Tejano music involves more instrumentation and modern influences from other genres, such as latin pop, rock, rhythm and blues, and hip hop.  What type of other genres or modern popular music do you think will influence Conjunto or Tejano music in the next decade?
