Ten-year-old Carmencita dreams of being in her father’s Mariachi band, but he insists that mariachi groups can only include men. When Carmencita reads a book about a famous female mariachi, it expands her world and her notion of what is possible. As an uplifting bilingual family performance full of vibrant original mariachi music, Mariachi Girl explores how one girl can challenge her identity in a modern society while embracing her rich heritage.
