Traditional dance, Mexico
“Mexican Hat Dance”, known in Mexico as “Jarabe Tapatio”, is a mix of famous Mexican dance forms, fact that perhaps justifies the word jarabe which means a mixture of herbs. Tapatío is the nickname given to people from Guadalajara. Jarabes have been the dance and music symbols of most central and southern Mexican states. Guadalajara music professor Jesús González Rubio (died in 1874) composed a standard melody for it as a symbol of national unity, leading the dance to become the “national dance” of Mexico.
