In order to know the roots of the Mariachi, we have to go back hundred of years. This music was used to celebrate happiness, struggles, or even success of the people. The make up of the mariachi was vihuela, two violins and the guitarrón by the end of the nineteenth century.
Later the Mariachi made additions of the acoustic guitar and the trumpets; at this time, this ensemble could play different types of music besides the son.
Today Mariachi music is still a very important part in many celebrations like birthdays, weddings, baptisms, special holidays (Virgen of Guadalupe and 5 de mayo) and even funerals.
