What’s a Mariachi? No, it’s not a Mexican dish

Their songs will make you sing

And their rhythm will make you dance


Without them the Mexican fiesta is not the same, they can light up the night with one song and make you dance until the sun rises. There’s no need to come to Mexico to hear them, in fact, there are Mariachi Schools in countries like the United States, where people can learn what it takes to be a good mariachi.
