Mariachi music is one of Mexico’s most recognizable symbols. For the past century, roving orchestras have played it in plazas, on streets and at restaurants. But there has never been a place to formally learn the art, until now.
A Mariachi school has opened in a former nightclub in Mexico City and it has an ambitious goal: to bring dignity to the music and take it from the streets and into concert halls.
