  • Bill Monroe, born on this day in 1911, was one of the most important musicians in the history of bluegrass -- the genre even takes its name from his band, The Bluegrass Boys.  Ralph Rinzler once described Bill as a "holy terror" on the mandolin, and with good reason; Bill could play faster and better than anyone around, and invented mandolin techniques that are still in use today. In this clip from "The Mandolin of Bill Monroe", a co-production between Smithsonian Folkways and Homespun Video, Bill sits down with friend John Hartford to show off his skill and share some mandolin tips. The full series is available for purchase on our website

      

  • Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles's "El Pitayero", is played in the form of son jalisciense. With its signature syncopated rhythm, it is the cornerstone of mariachi musical tradition. Mariachi Reyna takes this generations old musical gem and fills it with high energy and musicality in its surging dynamics and driving rhythm.
