A Most Awesome Mother’s Day Gift!

A Most Awesome Mother’s Day Gift!

LatinaLista — It is said that the only thing more Mexican than tequila is mariachi.


The rise of all-female mariachi groups is becoming more popular.

Yet, regardless of where our Latina cultural roots lay, one aspect of the Latina culture that transcends all of them is music and serenades.

Como ya sabe, (As you alredy know,) Mariachis are known for their serenades. From love-struck boys, or borracho men, serenading their novias or mujeres with the help of mariachis to the early morning birthday greetings of Las Mañanitas, a mariachi serenade brings a smile to anyone's face.

And since Mother's Day is just around the corner, who wouldn't want to send their mother a serenata?

That's why when I discovered the following site, I was so excited to share it with Latina Lista readers.

In this wonderful age of technology, we can now send all of our mothers a mariachi serenata — via cyberspace!

At the official Mariachi USA web site, you can actually send a mariachi serenata to your mom for Mother's Day — and it's free.

It is called an E-serenata and for anyone who wants to bring an extra smile to their Mom's face this Sunday, you can't go wrong with this site.

I could describe it, but why spoil the surprise.

I will say that the people behind the site are organizers of the National Mariachi USA Festival held at the Hollywood Bowl in June. They have information, pictures and CDs available of different mariachi groups.

It is a worthwhile to take a few minutes to browse the site, especially if you want to add to the serenata and purchase a CD or even tickets to the June event.
