ASU Mariachi

April 14, 2010

The ASU Mariachi programs boasts two groups: Mariachi ASU, which is for students, and Mariachi Diablos del Sol for both ASU students and community members. The two ensembles recently gathered for a festive concert, along with three other mariachi groups from the community, to celebrate its 25th anniversary of mariachi.

In this video, J. Richard Haefer, associate professor of ethnomusicology in the School of Music and director of the ASU Mariachi program, talks about the different sounds of mariachi and the history and joy of being part of the ASU Mariachi program.
