Mariachis!


The third event I attended last Saturday was the annual Heard Museum's Mercado de las Artes.  The event features artists from the southwest and Mexico displaying and selling their artistic creations.  It also features music and food.  This large Mariachi group entertained us for quite a while.



They played lively songs and sang along on many of them.

































They even posed for photos after their set was done.  They were certainly a cheerful bunch and were beautifully costumed with wonderfully large sombreros.

Tomorrow I'll show you some of the arts and crafts on display.

Love the sombreros. Not sure I could get away with wearing one in London, though.

It's a nice and happy looking group, like the sombreros too.

This is one of the largest mariachi bands that I've seen. I was in Guaymas, Mexico some years back and I remember almost every place where we ate had a small mariachi group to serenade us. Truly enjoyable!

Mariachi musicians always look so happy. Must be something about the music.
