Subject: RE: Origins: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
On Wikipedia entry about Bulmaro López Fernández (1878-1960), it reads that "It was in this place that the doctor met Juan Arozamena, who presented his immortal song and he presented it in the lyrical theater, entitled as "Las Chiapanecas". The name of the song so well known to all Mexicans is called "La Chiapaneca". The popularity of Las Chiapanecas and time attributed to Juan Arozamena.
In 1947, he returned to his hometown, to be present at the traditional January Fair. At the time he arrived, he made a trip to the place where he had studied high school, he stayed in the same place where he lived when he was a student, there was a piano where Don Bulmaro executed with perfect skill the music of "La Chiapaneca". At that time he confessed that he was the true author of the melody and that he had composed it inspired by his beautiful girlfriend, the young lady Chiapaneca (a young native of Chiapa de Corzo) Dominga Cortés Montero, being in her last year of high school in 1897 and he premiered it in a serenade to her in the company of her brothers, cousins ??and friends, on August 4 of the same year. The original score of the melody was found by one of the chroniclers of the Heroica Chiapa de Corzo, Don Alberto Muñoa López, when making a repair on the wall, it was embedded inside a tin cylinder. The witnesses who were present in this confession were his brothers: Otilio and Gabriel, their relatives and friends Ángela M. López, Pascual López, Indalecia López R., Delina López, Melesio A. Hernández, Guadalupe Morales López, Margarita Batiz López and Alberto by J. Muñoa." (Thanks Google translate!)

Now... how it's legally set is another story.
