Mariachi has become deeply rooted in the United States and is an integral element of the Mexican American Culture!
Created by Rafael Lopez and Derry Noyes as Art Director, 5 Mariachi Stamps playing each of the instruments! Bravo!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
We feel extremely honored to be part of a mariachi and represent our culture in the USA!
From the USPS:
Filled with passion, rhythm and stories of life, love and loss, mariachi music is an integral element of Mexican American culture that has become deeply rooted in the United States and has fans around the world.
Each of the five vibrant stamps in this pane of 20 features a musician dressed in a traje de charro, the traditional outfit of mariachi performers, playing one of five iconic mariachi instruments: guitar, guitarrón, vihuela, violin and trumpet.
Rafael López designed the stamps and created the art. Derry Noyes was the art director.
