Just as fish need water, birds their wings, for the Mariachis the state Jalisco in Mexico is the oxygen to survive. It is a great experience for a Mariachi band of a non-Mexican origin to come to Jalisco and to take part in the best Mariachi festival. Authentic atmosphere, high-quality music interpretation and human warmth motivates the further learning process of every participating group.
The famous international festival called “Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi” annually hosts mariachi groups coming from different countries of Americas, Europe and Asia. Our group’s best moments came in September 2006 when we were invited to take part in this event.
While we were performing for an audience like the one of Guadalajara, a special emotional feeling got into our musical soul : WE WERE THERE in the very root place of the Mariachi music! We were amazed by the role of mariachi music in the Mexican identity while many people started singing together with us and other Mariachis.
We were also surprised by the interest of Mexican press in our Mariachi. Well, we were a bunch of people who came from far and who seemed to be so enthusiastic about playing Mexican traditional music!
