The ideal band includes six violins, two trumpets, and three rhythm instruments, the guitar, the viheula, and the guitarron. These bands are very entertaining. Men and women both can wear Charro suits, but for women the the suit is usually paired with a long skirt instead of pants. Mexico is where mariachi bands originated from.
