Que Caramba es la Vida | 2013
Mariachi is an essential part of Mexican culture. It is more than just music -- it is a lifestyle that views the world from a macho perspective. The business is tough and women are seldom appreciated in this strictly male domain. Nevertheless, a handful of female musicians choose to be Mariachi. The first women mariachi band that formed in 1958 and is still performing, and a band of young female musicians who struggle with family issues and their vocation. Against the backdrop of the "Día de los Muertes" celebrations, we observe their performances on the streets of Mexico and throughout their daily lives.
