Mariachi Los Amigos
Mariachi Los Amigos was founded in 1979 and has continued to evolve over the years. Los Amigos truly are what their name depicts: a group of friends who share a passion for the lively, extroverted sound of mariachi music. Mariachi music originated among the ranching and farming people of west Mexico in the 19th century and began to gain recognition in the US during the early 20th century. Traditionally found at weddings, birthdays, saint's day celebrations and rural dances, this upbeat style of music was used to inspire celebration at special occasions in Mexico.
