Mariachis serenade couples in Mexico City

This is a popular tradition in the capital, with some couples even joining in on the group sing-along.

Garibaldi Square in the capital is the place for mariachis, but amid pandemic things are little more quiet.

These mariachi groups live off the money they get from song requests, but the pandemic has seen many couples celebrate at home this year.

Still, some couples could not resist the lure of the mariachi this Valentine's Day.
