Mexican music was popularised in the United States in the late 1970s as part of a revival of mariachi music led by performers like Linda Ronstadt.
Other famous mariachi performers include Pedro Infante, Vicente Fernández, Pepe Aguilar, Pedro Fernández, Alejandro Fernández, Antonio Aguilar and Miguel Aceves Mejía. Some of the best-known examples of Mexican music in the United States is “La Cucaracha” and the Jarabe Tapatío (called the Mexican Hat Dance in the United States).
In Mexico City, the centre of mariachi music remains Garibaldi Plaza. The plaza fills with mariachi musicians to solicit gigs from individual songs for passers-by to being hired for events such as weddings and baptisms. They even stand on Eje Central in front of the plaza to flag down passing cars.
Mariachi is an ensemble that consists of guitarrón, vihuela, guitar, violins and trumpets. This folk ensemble performs ranchera, son de mariachi, huapango de mariachi, polka, corrido and other musical forms. It originated in the southern part of the state of Jalisco during the 19th century.
The city of Guadalajara in Jalisco is known as the “Capital of Mariachi”. The style is now popular throughout Mexico and the Southwestern United States and is considered representative of Mexican music and culture.
This style of music is played by a group consisting of five or more musicians who wear charro suits. The golden age of mariachi was in the 1950s, when the ranchera style was common in movies. (Wikipedia)
