Curator's Note:

In a part of America that rarely makes headlines, there is a small town with a group of teenagers who will captivate your ears and warm your heart.

 

Mariachi High presents a year in the life of the champion mariachi ensemble at Zapata High School on the Rio Grande in South Texas. As they compete and perform with musical virtuosity, these teens and the music they make will inspire, surprise, and

bring you to your feet. High school

never sounded so good.

 

For more information about future showtimes and screenings, please visit the official Mariachi High website.

Charlie Rodriguez: A Mariachi Freshman

Exhibition playlist 4 of 8 ‹ previous | next ›

For his first day of high school, Carlos “Charlie” Rodriguez irons his jeans and refreshes his cologne. Over the next several months, he’ll go from nervous “fishie” to school mascot, and the only vocalist to represent Zapata High School at a national mariachi competition.
