in mexico | the other morelia fest


Following Saturday's Morelia film fest awards ceremony, I found myself intrigued by a billboard for the 10th annual mariachi festival here in Morelia. After a twenty minute cab ride out of the central historic district I was at Morelia's other festival happening this week. The evening featured a whopping five hours of Mariachi music by a host of acts (including the Mariachi Feminil from Jalisco, pictured here), capped by a memorable climax featuring two full mariachi bands backed by a baritone singer and a 50-piece orchestra. More to come on this, but right now I'm off to the airport for a flight to Mexico City and then a flight home...
