Mariachi

Some Mexican restaurants have a mariachi band that roams about visiting individual tables playing music and singing songs for customers. The main instruments are violin, trumpet, guitar and a guitarrón (a bass guitar). We enjoyed versions of "Happy Birthday", "Guantanamera", and "La Bamba".
