  Indigenous Traditions In Mexico - A Short Guide For Expats

Articles - Mexico

One of the largest and most diverse indigenous communities in Latin America exists in Mexico. The indigenous population in Mexico consists of 12.7 million people that make up 13 percent of the country’s population. There are 62 languages spoken by this population. Traditionally, the indigenous communities were defined using language-based criteria, which may have led to an underestimation of the indigenous population. This changed in the 2000 census when indigenous peoples’ organizations pressured the government to include a question based on self-identification. In this census it was found that only half of the population that identified themselves as indigenous spoke an indigenous language. 84 percent of those who spoke an indigenous language also spoke Spanish.   more ...

The benefit of enjoying high living standards at fairly low costs is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why many people are choosing to settle down in Mexico. This popular expat destination has a lot going for it, like its colorful history, rich culture, welcoming people, stable economy, tropical climate, and modern housing options. Its proximity to the United States and Canada is an additional benefit.

  The Traditional Folk Music Of Mexico: Artists You Should Know

Articles - Mexico

Although people across the world tend to view mariachi music as definitive of Mexican folk music, the country has a much richer and wider range of traditional musical styles. Even mariachi itself has a much wider range than the popular characterization of it, which tends to be a simplification and stereotyping of modern mariachi, ignoring the style’s rich history and its modern variations. (Early mariachi bands used only violins, guitars, and harps, and did not wear the iconic charro suits we know today. The suits, the adoption of instruments such as trumpets and accordions, and the incorporation of European styles such as polkas and waltzes happened only later, and modern mariachi bands continue to experiment and stretch the boundaries of the style.)   more ...
