But I've already posted that YouTube here in The Tides, so I went looking for something different this time. And lo! and behold I found this great version of El Picador, from the DVD World Drifts In: Live at the Barbican, London. 2004.
Once upon a time, when I first began to live in Mexico, I occasionaly paid wandering mariachi bands to go play somewhere else, far away from me. I'm embarrassed by that today and confess it all red-faced and repentant. I LOVE mariachi. I hope you do, too, and I hope you enjoy this video. Turn it up really loud and enjoy yourself!
Wouldn't it be great if we could get them to perform in little ol' Puerto Penasco???
