Mariachi Tradicion Mexicana: Oakland, California-based Maraichi band. Read this:
There is nothing more Mexican than Mariachi music. Mariachi has the power to stir the soul and ignite an uncontrollable passion inside the very depths of the heart. From the sound of the very first note one automatically conjures up images of folklore and tradition. The ear has no choice but to bathe itself with the brassy and bold sounds of the trumpet; the soft and romantic pitch of the violin; the ever-present guitarron and its partner, the pearly vihuela. All of these sights and sounds are what make up Mariachi Tradicion Mexicana.
Mariachi Tradicion Mexicana is proud to be the cultural ambassador of a tradition that is more than one hundred years old. We have made it our purpose to carry the folklore of our country forward: a musical style that has come to symbolize Mexico and its culture. Every day we strive to be better musicians as well as better Mariachis. Such fervor for this musical genre has not only inspired us to form Mariachi Tradicion Mexicana, it also motivates us into bringing you genuine and authentic Mariachi music.
Since it's beginnings in the summer of 2001, Mariachi Tradicion Mexicana drew talent from other local bay area bands. Since then the versatility and the professionalism of the group has only grown stronger due to the great talent that exists within the group. All of our members are reliable, skillful, young individuals who have dedicated their lives to the exposure and preservation of this beautiful music. It is through this discipline that we are able to make Mariachi Tradicion Mexicana a one of a kind band.
