We’ve got your basic 2-hour-long mariachi music video right here


Why, we asked ourselves, would these RelaxMusic people upload scores of allegedly ethnic or national background music videos to YouTube?

Exploring the sound of the mariachi grito in ‘El Rey’ — solo (video)


Chicago artist Diana Delgado Pinada writes:

Listening to the quintessential charro song El Rey accompanied with occasional “gritos Mexicanos” or “mariachi howls” would not be an unusual event.
