Mariachi USA Festival Background
in Mexico in the 19th century, mariachi music is a type of folk music that was initially only popular among peasant farmers.
The energetic guitar riffs and beautiful vocals that were intrinsic to mariachi soon spread all around Mexico, becoming popular
among both the lower classes and the upper classes. It soon became so widely popular that it basically became the national
form of music in Mexico, gaining prominence at even the most monumental political events like presidential elections. Along
with sounds from indigenous Mexico, mariachi music also derives sounds from popular European music, like opera, salon music,
waltzes, and polka. The traditional mariachi musician will wear white pants and shirts while performing, a nod to the rural
peasants that first made the form of music popular.
For 23 years, the Mariachi USA Festival has taken over the Hollywood
Bowl to bring this authentic sound of Mexico to Southern California, sharing Mexican culture with thousands of fans each year.
The Festival was initially founded by Rodri J. Rodriguez, an artist and producer that wanted to bring the beautiful sounds
and vibrant colors of mariachi to a wider audience. Because mariachi music is so deeply ingrained in Mexican heritage, the
Mariachi USA Festival is one of the most important events that shares the culture of Mexico in the entire country.
Festival arrived at the Hollywood Bowl in 1990, and today thousands of people attend the Mariachi USA Festival every year
to celebrate and experience Mexican heritage. Both Mexicans and non-Mexicans love to absorb the exciting and eclectic sounds
of mariachi as it takes over the Hollywood Bowl this June, so make sure that you are there to experience this annual tradition

Today, experts believe that the word mariachi was derived from the
French word mariage, which translates to marriage. People think that because of mariachi's close ties to weddings, which were
initially the first stages and venues for mariachi music, the word mariage eventually morphed into mariachi. There are several
other theories about the origin of mariachi, but this one seems to be the most plausible.
