Audio Flipbook: Old School Mariachis

At the music school where I study in Mexico City, many of my classmates dream of becoming professional mariachis. They’re part of a new generation of musicians who depend on institutions, sheet music, and instructors to learn traditional Mexican music and build up their repertoires.

To hear what their elders had to say about this, I talked with an established mariachi (the term mariachi applies to a single musician, the entire group, and the style of music that they play) in the colonial city of Puebla.
