Mariachi ensembles provide some of the most distinctive, dynamic music of Mexico. A quick glance at the current popular music scene in the United States reveals the increasing influence and vitality of the Mexican and Mexican-American Mariachi tradition. Linda Ronstadt has recorded (and toured throughout the USA) with some of the best Mariachi musicians. Movies such as Mi Familia highlight this vibrant music. Los Mariachis! looks at the history, instruments and sounds of the Mariachi traditionna sound which is being heard more and more outside of Mexico. States throughout the southwestern US, including Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and California, and other urban areas, such as Chicago and in Washington state are home to numerous mariachi ensembles. This enjoyable unit is perfect for one to three classroom sessions. It is equally useful for music, social studies or Spanish language classes, or music lovers who would like to know more about contemporary Mexican culture. (A complete Spanish translation for the narration and study questions is included as an appendix.)
