| 0 comments

Here’s a description of this video:

Mariachi Herencia de México, an ensemble of students from Chicago’s immigrant barrios, has scored a surprise hit with their debut album of traditional Mexican music. Nuestra Herencia (Our Heritage) ranked No. 2 in its first week on iTunes’ Latin chart, defying a music industry trend and pointing to a revival in recorded mariachi music.

You can read more about them at the NBC News story, ‘Nuestra Herencia’: How a Chicago Schools Mariachi Group Landed a Latin Grammy Nomination.

You might also be interested in my NY Times post for ELLs and their teachers where students Learn about mariachis and use them to kick-off an exploration of the different aspects of students’ home cultures.
