Along the way, we hope that we can broaden your knowledge of Mariachi music and the history of Mariachi bands. Did you know that some say the beginning of Mariachi could be linked to the introduction of musical instruments to New Spain, which now, of course is Mexico? Spanish explorer Hernan Cortes, in 1519, brought the harp and the vihuela, along with other instruments, during his travels. The vihuela was like a guitar, having six double strings and tuned almost like the modern guitar. These instruments were played by plucking the strings, with a bow, or with a plectrum, or, as we call it today, a “pick”. The addition of these musical instruments to what was already being used to make music, rattles, sticks, drums, flutes, made way for a more diverse and layered musical capability.
Here’s a bit of music trivia. When these new instruments were introduced to “New Spain”, where was it played? The music, at first was played in churches during mass.
Thank you for your interest in our music. Just give us a call and we will reserve the date of your choice to the magic of Mariachi to your special event.
