Mariachi Music Mariachi music is a widely admired genre in the world now, but just recently it has risen in popularity. The word “mariachi” either means “marriage” in French or is an indigenous word for a wooden stage used by musical group performances. Before European conquest, natives used rattles, drums, flutes, and conch horns for religious occasions. When the Spanish arrived, they brought along violins, guitars, harps, brass horns, woodwind instruments, and colonial dancing, which eventually blended with the music of the natives.

This specific approach to art usually consists of mysterious, dark elements: supernatural conflict and ominous setting, typically an abandoned castle. In the aged version of gothic romanticism, the gloomy aspects are still found; however, they are depicted in different manners. An example of modified gothic romanticism is seen in Washington Irving’s “The Devil and Tom Walker” by its supernatural conflict, and setting in the mysterious, abandoned Native American Fort.

There they created their first album, Take This to Your Grave. Next, they produced From Under the Cork Tree, Infinity on High, and the flop of Folie a Deux, before they went on hiatus just to come back three years later and create Save Rock and Roll.
