Mariachi is a music genre from the regional areas of Mexico. It has been around since the 18th century and lives on mixing with other music genres propagated by Mexican musicians. Usually played by a group, violinists, trumpeters, a guitarist playing vihuela (Mexican guitar-like string instrument), and a guitarron (bass guitar) comprise the whole team. All of them will also alternate when singing, both lead and backing vocals. In the 20th century, the genre became popularized to become an urban phenomenon. Since then, many groups outcropped in the cities.
Among the most popular mariachi groups in modern times is Sol de Mexico. The group is run by Jose Hernandez, who is an expert in the genre and is considered to be among today's most famous leaders of mariachi groups. Since the 60s, the music group pioneers the mainstream visibility of the genre to listeners all over the world. Their rise to the top was not an easy one, but as they broke out, they became unstoppable. This led to international performances and collaborations with the biggest names in the music scene. They have performed in the Hollywood Bowl and the national treasure Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City. They have performed with Jose Feliciano, Bryan Adams, Rocio Durcal, Lindda Ronstadt, Lola Beltran, and Selena. Also, their songs are heard in movies like Sea Biscuit, Don Juan de Marco, and American Me.
During the 90s, Hernandez established Mariachi Sol de Mexico Symphony Orchestra. The ensemble performs among important venues in Mexico and around the world.
Sprouting from the successes of the music group is their Holiday special, the Merry-Achi Christmas Concert tours around Mexico and North America. Twenty-five years after the concert was made, it has never stopped wowing audiences by giving vibrant performances. The whole show is spreading Mexico's Christmas tradition through musical tribute.
