Magic of Mariachi / La Magia del Mariachi - Steven Schneider

This beautiful book sings with vibrant color and imagination the tradition of our mariachi music. The conjunction of poetry and art is presented in an elegant manner. The variety of poetic forms in this book is impressive. It is a masteful display of poetic virtuosity. The paintings are exquisitely rendered, and the poetry invokes the lyricism and magic of Mexico…. It will serve as a valuable resource in schools, libraries, and mariachi educational programs.

—from the Introduction by Professor Dahlia Guerra Founder of Mariachi Aztlan

The Magic of Mariachi / La Magia del Mariachi combines two disciplines to celebrate a third, thus creating an ekphrastic treasure trove of lyrical poetry and strikingly beautiful paintings, both inspired by mariachi musicians. The poems are written in a wide variety of poetic forms: sestina, haiku, villanelle, triolet, prose poems, dramatic monologues and free verse. In addition to works that express the romantic themes of mariachi music, these poems and paintings speak to the contemporary and historical social context of this magical musical tradition, including women who assert their voices and identities through their instruments and dreamers who live between two worlds.

This book is dedicated to all mariachi musicians, north and south of the border, whose music transcends all boundaries.

Este libro está dedicado a todos los músicos de mariachi, al norte y sur de la franja fronteriza, cuya música transciende todas las fronteras.
