Zacatecus, Mexican March

Genaro Codina

Genaro Codina (1852-1901) was born in the city of Zacatecus, Mexico. Little is known of his early life, but it is known that he played several instruments and that the harp was his primary instrument. Codina’s Zacatecus, Mexican March is world famous and was composed while he was an accountant for the city of Zacatecus. The march was dedicated to Prefirio Diaz, the president of Mexico. Codina left his accountant’s position in 1887 and organized a group called Tipica Zacatecus, with which he traveled extensively, presenting concerts throughout Mexico and the United States.

Recorded 1994, William Toland conducting.
