Google Doodle serenades us with a celebration of mariachi
Marichi is the quintessential folk music of Mexico and has become a symbol of the country’s culture. It is the musical accompaniment to the most important moments in life, celebrating joy and sorrow.

To celebrate the unmistakable ensemble of trumpets, guitars, and violins, Google on Tuesday dedicated a musical and animated doodle known as Sound of Mexico. The Doodle features the classic song Cielito Lindo’s Mariachi Serenade – an almost lovely translation of Sweet One.

Originated in western Mexico in the 18th century, a traditional mariachi band is composed of at least two violins, an acoustic guitar, an acoustic bass guitar called a guitar one, and a vihuela – a guitar with a round back that is of high-pitched tones. Produces. Modern mariachi bands have added trumpets, a singer, and even the occasional harp.

The musician wears Traje de Charo, a Mexican cowboy suit elaborately embellished with skirts, pants, a short jacket, and a wide-brimmed sombrero embroidery and gold or silver buttons.

 

In honor of Native American Heritage Month in the U.S., today’s video Doodle—created in partnership with Native American guest artists Lydia CheshewallaChris Pappan, and Yatika Starr Fields— celebrates Maria Tallchief, a member of the Osage Nation who was America’s first, major prima ballerina. Not only a trailblazer for Native American dancers, but Tallchief is also widely considered one of the country’s most influential ballerinas of all time. On this day in 2007, a bronze sculpture of Tallchief and four other Native American ballerinas was unveiled in Oklahoma at the Tulsa Historical Society in a piece titled “The Five Moons” by artist Gary Henson.

Maria Tallchief was born Elizabeth Marie Tall Chief on January 24, 1925, in the town of Fairfax on the Osage Indian Reservation in northern Oklahoma. She began her ballet training at the age of three and continued to do so upon the family’s relocation to Beverly Hills in 1933. Determined to become a dancer, she moved to New York after high school and joined the esteemed Russian troupe Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo that same year.

In 1944, Tallchief first worked with the now-legendary choreographer George Balanchine. Her virtuosic skill and electric energy proved a perfect match for Balanchine’s demanding works. After she became the first American to dance with the Paris Opera Ballet, Tallchief returned to New York and joined the Ballet Society, which was co-founded by Balanchine and soon renamed the New York City Ballet. Her prodigious talent was recognized when she was named the company’s first-ever prima ballerina.

Over the course of 18 years with the company, Tallchief starred in acclaimed productions such as “The Firebird” (1949), “Swan Lake” (1951), and “The Nutcracker” (1954)—all of which are depicted in today’s Doodle. In her iconic role as the Sugar Plum Fairy, she helped elevate “The Nutcracker” from relative obscurity into one of ballet’s most popular, long-running productions.

Following Tallchief’s retirement from dancing in 1965, she went on to serve as the artistic director of the Chicago Lyric Opera Ballet and the founder and artistic director of the Chicago City Ballet.

For her enduring impact on American ballet, Tallchief was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1996, received the National Medal for the Arts in 1999, and was posthumously inducted into the National Native American Hall of Fame in 2018.
