María Barret de Lizárraga is the mother of eight children, but the births did not hurt more than that day when she saw her grandchildren, Carlos and Andrey, leave on her first working tour with La Original Banda El Limón.
“I entrusted them a lot to God, as I continue to do until now, I knew they were well cared for because my husband was with them, now there are five of my grandchildren who are dedicated to music. Although none of my children wanted to be a musician, my grandchildren did take their grandfather out, “
said the wife of Salvador Lizárraga, founder of La Original Banda El Limón.
María married Don Salvador 55 years ago, in Siqueiros, her hometown. When the first child arrived and seeing that the expenses of the house were increasing, she suggested to her husband that he become a musician.
What did esposa Maria say about her family struggle and her husband’s dream plan for the family?
“He became a musician next to me, before he worked in the fields, I told him to go study music. He wanted another life for us, he stayed to live in Mazatlán for a year and I was alone with my first two children in Siqueiros “, he relates.
Without electricity, water, and drainage service in Siqueiros, María raised her children. A year later she caught up with her husband in Mazatlán and they began to live in Colonia Montuosa.
“We also struggled a lot here, we went through a lot of poverty, then more children began to arrive, one every two years, many people asked me why I was raising them in that colony of vagrants, but none of them turned out badly son, I did not fight with any”, she says proudly.
“Thank God, I knew how to educate my children as they educated me, what hope that at 8:00 at night they were walking in the street, at that time I gave them dinner and put them to bed. Now they laugh and tell me: ‘Mom, you used to put us to bed as if we were chickens’, but I was alone and I had to do that to you “.
Her husband’s trips were constant, so María had to act as a mother and father many times, as there were times when Salvador lived up to two years in the United States.
“I have spent a lot of time alone, my husband came to see us when he could, he was doing very well in the United States and we wanted our children to study. We both managed to fight him, we have very good children and that is also because they have had a very good father.”
