New Guinness World Record. Largest Number of Mariachis Playing Simultaneously. Congratulations! Art is everywhere, Yareah friends!
A total of 700 mariachis have played together for five minutes in Guadalajara (Mexico). The group has managed to beat the Guinness record for largest number of mariachis playing simultaneously. Until now, the Guinness World Record was 566 mariachis (134 mariachis less) and was achieved in Pasadena USA.
See this video about the moment. Guadalajara rocks!
Interesting quote. What do you think?
“To a mariachi, once a musician plays all of the notes in a song, he has only played half of the music. Style and musicality are truly just as important as notes, and so these are taught in conjunction with, at the same time as the notes — and this is what I believe perpetuates the style. When one learns from listening, the way that something is played seems just as important as the notes.” Virtuoso Mariachi Book.
