In both cantines and popular restaurants (and sometimes, even in some fancy places) not only waiters interact with the customers.
The variety of offerings that a customer can receive in Mexico during his visit a restaurant may be wide: boleros (shoe shiners), occasion photographers, lottery ticket vendors…
Sometimes one would think that digital jukeboxes that house huge stocks of mp3 could be the end of professional musicians in bars, but it’s not the case.
Live music at a cantine or at a fonda may be something as spectacular as a group of mariachis or something as modest as a man with a harmonica. But no matter how modest an interpretation is, if it’s good, customers usually appreciate it and thank them for it. With this post we thank all musicians who are good and who cheer up our mealtimes.
