    What is Grupera

    The first wave of Mexican rock bands started mainly with Spanish versions of popular English rock songs. After this initial phase, they began to include traditional songs of the locals in their repertoire, as well as drums and ballads. Consequently, the 1970s saw the birth of a series of musical groups specializing in romantic ballads and songs that were previously sung with mariachis.

    The music of the group is known to be a piece of music based on wind, bronze and wooden instruments and where the musical acts are composed of 10 to 20 groups of musicians. In addition to the longhorn section, the percussion and drums elements were used to make low. Some groups have a lead singer; others have three. The songs are original compositions, versions of stanchions and corridors, or folk music.

    The metal section of the Grupera includes trumpets, clarinets, trombones, valves, and sticks grafted saxophones, known as cococha in specific re-gions and tuba, a symbolic genre of the instrument. In a kind of percussion known as drums, bells, and whistles, they are present, but the star is the drum, this huge drum with a plate on the upper deck with which it is sung.
