Andrés Salguero has released his first video from his upcoming album, ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! “If I Had a Mariachi” was filmed at La Plaza Garibaldi (Mexico City’s traditional home of mariachi) and other Mexico City locations which gives it a nice authentic feel. Anyone who has been serenaded by a Mariachi band should know how much energy goes into one performance, whether it’s tableside at an amazing restaurant or out in a plaza. The video for “If I Had a Mariachi” definitely exemplifies the spirit of Salguero’s music while introducing kids to an important piece of Mexican culture.
In truth, I was sold simply based on the title of the song. Now, after watching the video, I want a mariachi! I love the introduction of the instruments, included with the spanish spelling of the words across the screen, and the kids’ faces as they are wowed by the beautiful display of mariachi instruments.
¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! will be released in April to honor El Día de los Niños so tay “tuned,” i.e. polish up your trompeta and tune your guitarras boys and girls./p>
