Mexican music is not the only mariachi. It has different branches; it uses different instruments that differentiate one from the others, as well as in different countries, each of the regions in which it is divided has not only its typical food but also its regular music and dance. In many of the average contemporary dances of the Mexicans one can notice a significant influence of the Spanish culture, not only for the costumes that are used in them but also for the skirt movements in the women and changes in general that characterize them. The zapateo is one of the most evident factors, although if it has a touch like the Spanish Andalusian flamenco, it is not the same, it is used differently, and also the music is different, they are influences.
If you visit Mexico City Ballet Folklorico is one of the plans you must schedule, it is a show that is impossible to miss because of everything that it integrates into itself.
