Yeah, we’re even having a mariachi band! Thank us later...
Mariachi Los Romanticos is a Melbourne-based ensemble band that play an authentic range of Mexico’s finest Mariachi songs, from toe-tapping rancheras to tender moving boleros, led by the director William Martinez.
He and his family left El Salvador in 1987, searching for a better life. On arrival to our shores, brothers Willíam and Julio with their father José, began to recreate their musical identity and play the Mariachi music of their homeland. Mariachi Los Románticos play Mexican folk and pop music with a line-up of Spanish vocals, guitar, Mexican bass, trumpet, violin, Latin Percussion in stunningly embroidered traditional Mexican suits which creates the essence of Mariachi music. Their songs embody the heart of México, telling stories of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
