There is not a book which explains and describes the history, myths and evolution as El Mariachi writen by Dr. Jauregui. In this book we can find a wide explanation about how the mariachi (the gruop of musicians and the popular party) have evolved during more than a century.

After 25 year of research Dr. Jauregui show in this magnificent book, not only writen history and analisys but a valuable colection of photographies (most of them never published) which give us an interesting way to learn about one of the most representative musical groups in Mexico.

By Addison Dewit VINE VOICE on February 22, 2008
I bought this on my last trip to Mexico and it's that rare mix of solid content and "coffee table" book that I love. Lots of vintage and contemporary graphics and the story of how this great music came to be. I think I paid a lot more than 44 dollars in Mexico.
