On The Popularity Of Mariachi Music In Japan
I was dimly aware that, in recent years, a teenage Japanese girl became so enamored of Mariachi music that she moved to Mexico and became a popular Mariachi singer there. I haven't tracked down her history yet, but this video shows that it's really not so surprising. Mariachi music is popular in Japan, and in this video it's a bit surreal seeing Mariachi singers getting the full rock star treatment by excited Japanese fans.
