Is there any music other than mariachi that is such a perfect vehicle for high intensity emotion, passion, and over-the-top charm? This week’s Beat Latino celebrates International Mariachi Day, (January 21) with mostly mariachi from the diaspora. From all women mariachis, to rock and punk-tinged bands, to even a touch of jazz, here’s a selection of Mexico‘s iconic music as it emerges and touches hearts on both sides of the border.
