Definitions for tololoche

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word tololoche.


  1. Tololoche

    The tololoche is a traditional musical instrument from northern Mexico. It is similar to but smaller than the European double bass, and still large enough to produce low-pitched sounds. It has three or four strings, and is plucked with the fingers (pizzicato). It is purely a folk instrument, and not used in classical music. In northern Mexico it is used in Fara fara and norteño music. These styles include the accordion, snare drum, tololoche, saxophone, guitar or bajo sexto. It is also used by musicians playing in bars and taverns in northern cities. The tololoche became established in the north of Mexico as indispensable to the interpretation of regional music and less awkward than the classical double-bass to transport. The instrument is purely acoustic, and its role is endangered by electric instruments such as the electric bass. In the 1950s, modern instruments such as the drum set and the electric bass began to take the place of the tambor de rancho and tololoche, respectively. However, musicians and composers have returned to the tololoche for consistency within the field of traditional music.
