Mariachi NYC

Mariachi is folk music from the region of Jalisco in central-western Mexico. It absorbed waltz and polka rhythms from German immigrants, and trumpets from Latin Jazz. After the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) the new government promoted Mariachi as a symbol of Mexican identity. Colombians also love Mariachi.
