The Roots of Mariachi
The authentic instruments of Mariachi are the cocula (named after a town in Jalisco state), the vihuela (a small guitar tuned like a lute), two violins and a guitarrón (a deep, acoustic bass guitar). This set-up is common in Jalisco – the purported birthplace of Mariachi – but other Mexican states have different claims to the music, with Mariachi bands arranging themselves in different ways across the country.
The clothing of the Mariachi groups (known as traje de charro) resembles a horseman or rich hacienda owner, which became the preferred clothing of Mariachi groups after the 1910 revolution. Their role in society was functional – Mariachi bands were message bearers, sending songs of love to young girls on behalf of their courters who were forbidden to see them; they were singers of holy songs on saint days, and they were the entertainment at the village fandango, a fiesta in the countryside with a wooden platform for couples to dance.
Modern Mariachi Groups
The Mariachi that we know today became popular upon the advent of radio and cinema in the 1930s. It was around this same time that many famous Mariachi groups moved from rural states like Jalisco into Mexico City in the post-revolutionary period. Cantinas such as Salón Tenampa became buzzing hubs of Mariachi activity, laying the groundwork for the urban mariachi which predominates today.
Since then, Mariachi groups have spread to London, LA and New York, bringing with them the unique Mexican rhythms and styles born from the village fiesta. If you’re looking for a Mexican twist to your private party or special occasion, then get the tequila ready and look no further than the London Mariachi Band!
