Musica Popular-Mariachi in 2-Channel Home Audio Posted January 23, 2015 I'm sure she made frequent trips to Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico City to listen to the many bands that played there. I spent many nights there and spent many pesos drinking cerveza and an occasional tequila during my winter trips to Cuernavaca and Mexico City. The charro tradition has been around for a long time. José Alfredo Jiménez is best known and most loved in ranchera music. Juan Gabriel has carried on the mariachi tradition and has influenced many Mexican and Spanish singers. Enjoy the music! I listen to it frequently.
