Jaraberos de Nochistlán (Traditional Musicians)

Nochistlán de Mejía

Music has been a fundamental part of the history of Nochistlán de Mejía. A great part of this wealth is in charge of los jaraberos, recognized as part of the inventory of the State's Cultural Heritage.

These musicians have been playing sones, polkas, corridos, and tambora music since the mid-19th century. Their most notable appearance occurred between 1850 and 1950 when they began to interpret the jarabes that were divided into three parts, to accompany them with a “diana”, musical applause given to comic phrases of daily life that rhyme with the song.

The instruments that must accompany a jarabero band are violins, 13-string guitars, tambora, and, sometimes, harp. The jaraberos perform daily in El Jardín Morelos, but they cannot be absent from the patron saint festivities either.
