From the west to the east... From Mexico to Japan!
Mexican music in Japan!
Music is considered an international language that can over any frontier… And maybe, this is true! Besides the distance and the language, Mexican music has shown a big development into the Japanese culture… or at least, that’s what the numbers say!
Mexican music legends that have awed the world through time such as Agustin Lara, Jose Alfredo Jimenez, the Zaizar brothers or Lola Beltran;have also amazed Asia, especially Japan. Statistics show that Mexico has exported music across the world, and the top 6 consumers are: United States, Spain, Central America, England, Italy and surprisingly Japan.
Right now there is a boom of Mexican music in this Asian country; this is because Japanese have heard them through movies and covers of new singers, who have given fame to these classic songs with their remake versions.
Some of the favorites Mexican songs in Japan are: Si nos dejan, Amanecí en tus brazos, El Rey, Granada and Solamente una vez; melodies that very popular at karaoke’s. In fact the song, Cielo Rojo, has been recorded in Japanese, Serbian and even in Dutch.
This uproar of Mexican music in Japan, has led to the creation of the very first Japanese mariachi group called Mariachi Samurai (but some may refer to it as Mariachi Fujiyama). This group made by Sam Moreno (his artistic name) and his wife Lumi Hasegawa has spread Mexican music in Asia; they sing in Spanish but before getting up on stage and performing, they explain the lyrics to the audience.
However, music isn’t the only Mexican delight that has gained great popularity in Japan… Food also! There are many Mexican food restaurants that have opened in Japan during the next few years; places where locals can enjoy the culture, sounds and flavors of Mexico.
