The Sounds of Mariachi: Lessons in Mariachi Performance - Bolero with Nati Cano [Preview Video]
Description:
Mariachi los Camperos de Nati Cano demonstrate how to play bolero, an important song type in mariachi music. Cano discusses two types of bolero: romántico & más alegre. This video is from the instructional DVD "The Sounds of Mariachi: Lessons in Mariachi Performance" from Smithsonian Folkways. Purchase the DVD here: https://folkways.si.edu/nati-canos-mariachi-los-camperos-chula-vista-jesus-chuy-guzman-mark-fogelquist/sounds-lessons-performance-dvd/latin-music-instruction/video/smithsonian 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. Cano, his Grammy-endowed Mariachi Los Camperos, and its music director Jesús "Chuy" Guzmán join female mariachi pioneer Rebecca Gonzales, award-winning educator Mark Fogelquist, and talented students in this collection of mariachi performances and instruction. This master class for teachers and students of all levels offers pointers in ensemble playing, fundaments of mariachi trumpet, violin, vihuela, and guitarrón 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.
