My name is Alejandro, I'm Mexican and I'm a mariachi. To make this kind of music, I need instruments like the guitar, the guitarron, the violin and some trumpets. Sometimes, I also have to use flutes and harps. It is a very varied music and in Mexico it is very common to listen to mariachis at family gatherings, parties, serenades and on the anniversary of Independence on September 16.
