Description
For more about the instructional DVD, The Sounds of Mariachi: Lessons in Mariachi Performance, please visit: http://www.folkways.si.edu/albumdetails.aspx?itemid=3272 Mariachi los Camperos de Nati Cano demonstrate how to play bolero in the mariachi style. ABOUT THIS DVD: The Sounds of Mariachi: Lessons in Mariachi Performance offers essential lessons in Mexican mariachi performance, given by accomplished, articulate, foremost musicians and educators. American national treasure Nati Cano, honored with the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage award, takes us to the core of the unique mariachi musical style, just as he has done for thousands of students in hundreds of mariachi school programs across America. This master class for teachers and students of all levels offers pointers in ensemble playing, fundaments of mariachi trumpet, violin, vihuela, and guitarrĂ³n technique, and insights to key musical genres including son, huapango, ranchera, and bolero. Bonus videos of a third-generation guitar maker, a family guitar string factory, a traje de charro suit tailor, and a mariachi specialty shop round out the world of the accomplished mariachi musician.
