Familia, amor and tradición-and breaking it-are at the heart of this "big-hearted musical tug at the heartstrings" (Denver Post). Lucha spends her days caring for her ailing mother, but longs to shake up her 1970s home life. When a forgotten record album sparks her mother's memory, Lucha and her cousin strike upon a radical idea: to create an all-female mariachi band. Infused with live mariachi music at each performance, American Mariachi reveals how music and love can make just about anything possible. Presented in English.
