Other folks who might know more about Latin American music might have more extensive info to offer, but I'm pretty sure I have some idea what you're talking about...

Polka-like music from Mexico falls into the genre known as Norteno, meaning "Norththern," and referring, of course, to said region of Mexico. The polka element is evidently derived from the influence of Czech and Austrian soldiers who arrived during Mexico's brief period of Hapsburg rule. Of course, nowadays all Norteno songs are in Spanish, and the style has been thoroughly assimilated into Mexican culture. I actually hear the music quite a bit in my neighborhood in Chicago; usually it's accordion-oriented (button box stuff, I believe), but I have heard some pretty wild brass band variations as well, which might be on the lines of the music to which you refer.
