Brass bands have been a staple of Mexican life, particularly at village parties and weddings, for over 100 years. But it wasn't until the end of the 20th century that these groups made the transition from fiesta to arena. Banda's primary sound is bright and underscored by a booming tuba. Make no mistake: you'll hear horns and lots of them.
