Omaha Mariachi 1

This Omaha Mariachi group began as a student group, which started from a mariachi class funded by a grant from the Nebraska Arts Council and offered through the Hispanic Ministries project: Cuicacalli Centro de Arte. Classes were offered to learn and appreciate traditional mariachi music for interested teachers and especially at-risk youth in Omaha.

The first class had 21 students ranging in age from 6 to 50 years old. With much interest and progress from students and teachers, a "group" was born.
