Mexico has a great variety of music.

Every state and every region of Mexico make up a complete and original musical culture. Fads have come and gone, but what is good remains.  

For example, if you go to Mexico City as a tourist, you may have gone to Garibaldi Plaza to listen to the mariachi singers.

Obviously Mariachi music is one of the most popular in Mexico and one of the most representative of Latin music. Many of the most famous and traditional songs from Mexico are known throughout the world. “Cielito Lindo, “La Bamba”, “Solamente Una Vez” or “Besame Mucho” are some of the clearest examples.


In the musical culture, Mexico is influenced by the United States but also has a strong influence of the Latin side. Rhythms like salsa, merengue, and cumbia are common to listen to. Also on the northern part of the country we have corridos, norteno, grupero, and ranchera styles.

Also there is the pop, rock and commercial side.

During the past three decades, music in Mexico has had important developments in regard to classical music as the leading edge and a strong presence in the popular music and rock.

 Now the most representative artists of Mexico are: Alejandro Fernandez, Thalia, Paulina Rubio, Luis Miguel, Alaska, Timbiriche, Alejandra Guzman, Alex Sintek, Belanova, Moderatto, Belinda, Mana, Kalimba, Alexander Acha, Sin Bandera, Gloria Trevi, etc.

Mexico has a great diversity of music accompanied with dances and costumes typical of each style.
