Reviews - What do customers think about El Mariachi. Simbolo musical de Mexico/ The Mariachi. Mexico's Musical Symbol (Spanish Edition)?
A beautiful book Feb 22, 2008
I bought this on my last trip to Mexico and it's that rare mix of solid content and "coffee table" book that I love. Lots of vintage and contemporary graphics and the story of how this great music came to be. I think I paid a lot more than 44 dollars in Mexico.
El Mariachi by Dr. Jesús Jauregui Dec 27, 2007
There is not a book which explains and describes the history, myths and evolution as El Mariachi writen by Dr. Jauregui. In this book we can find a wide explanation about how the mariachi (the gruop of musicians and the popular party) have evolved during more than a century.
After 25 year of research Dr. Jauregui show in this magnificent book, not only writen history and analisys but a valuable colection of photographies (most of them never published) which give us an interesting way to learn about one of the most representative musical groups in Mexico.
