Los Amigos

Artists, Artists - Music

Mariachi songs are sung throughout Mexico and beyond, and have become a key part of the country’s national identity  Immigrants, descendants of Mexicans living abroad, as well as Latin Americans, have made the modern mariachi a symbol of community identity.

Learning by ear is the main means of transmission of traditional Mariachi, and the skill is usually passed down through families and through performance at festive, religious and civil events.

Los Amigos  are Nelson Luis Martinez Arnold, Hugo Nuevo and Emilce Maidana  – a group of Paraguayan friends who are keeping Mexican Mariachi music.  Coming from a long tradition of Latin American folk and popular music, the band enjoy bringing the Mexican party vibe to a wide variety of events in the UK and Europe.
