A brief history…
Before the Spanish arrived Mexico, the indigenous Peoples created music for their religious events using rattles, drums, reed and clay flutes, and conch-shell horn. When the Spanish introduced Christianity to Mexico, the indigenous mestizos and Indians were also introduced to musical instruments imported from Europe: violins, guitars and harps, brass horns, and woodwinds. Over time the natives began to merge their own unique creativity with these musical instruments and modified it to suit their taste.
The Spanish introduced the concept of musical groups usually consisting of two violins, one harp, and guitars. The indigenes immediately adopted it and this gave rise to Mexican folk music. One of the popular musical styles was the son. Son musical style featured strings instruments and had varieties. The variety popular in the Jalisco area of Mexico was son jaliscence. This son jaliscence is what is now known as Mariachi.
Mariachi are street musicians that perform with violins, trumpets, and guitars. These musicians normally dress in traditional outfits that consist of smart suits. They can play a huge variety of music, both traditional and modern, in their own special style.
