so The Book of Life has a Mexican mariachi version of “I Will Wait” by fucking Mumford and Sons
this movie is a cinematic masterpiece
I agreed about the masterpice thing, but ammm, that’s not mariachi pal, it’s a genere of mexican music called ”norteño” or ” musica norteña” . As you can imagine it was ”invented” in the north of the country ;)
Reblogging for the added info! Very neat and informative!
As soon as I heard this I was thinking “This straight up sounds like polka” and, when looking it up on Wikipedia, it appears this musical style was a result of cultural fusion between Mexican people and Germanic/Central European immigrants. Neat!
