In response to my wondering about whether Mariachi play at funerals a Mexican friend confirms that they do and tells me that THE funeral song is Las Golondrinas The Swallows. Wikipedia tells me that the song was written in by a Mexican doctor, Narciso Serradell Sevilla, while exiled in France. It has become the song of exiled Mexicans longing for their homeland—just like the migrating swallow. Many people, including Nat King Cole and Placido Domingo, have covered the song, and the Nat King Cole version, which has full Mariachi backing, is wonderfully evocative—and high on the list for my funeral. How interesting that English speakers should create a love song from a Mexican song of exile and loss. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
