Welcome to the twenty-fourth installment of the MACT Project. We have had requests for more polkas to be added so we thought we would present De Torreon A Lerdo, as performed by Mariachi Mexico de Pepe Villa. Mariachi Mexico was considered, and still may be currently considered, the preeminent torch-holders of the Mariachi Polka.
Personally, I remember getting scolded by my father, also a mariachi musician, when I would go over polkas that weren't by Mariachi Mexico. At that time, I never really understood why he was so adamant that I study ONLY Mariachi Mexico polkas. But now I understand slightly: by default, in some form or another, Mariachi groups perform there polkas--if they are not entirely new arranges--under the framework laid down by Mariachi Mexico.
Well, here it is:
