The Mariachi community of Boyle Heights and the Greater Los Angeles area come together for a live-streamed music performance to raise funds for local musicians affected by the pandemic.
The safer at home orders and public health guidelines on social distancing took a severe toll on artists and performers across the city of Los Angeles. In response to these hardships, community members in Boyle Heights organized a live streamed mariachi concert to raise funds and financially support mariachis during the pandemic. The musicians featured in this event consisted of mariachis from Boyle Heights, as well as other neighboring cities and localities. In the video, a mariachi group sings a song about the immigrant experience and navigating xenophobia in the U.S.
