Mariachi Agave Azul

Mariana Hererra and brothers German and Francisco Badillo created Mariachi Agave Azul, the only official Mariachi band in Alaska. The 15-member group of teens and young adults performs cultural music from Mexico at special events around Anchorage. Despite their cultural differences, all members of the band are passionate about their music and understand the deep connection of those who hear them play.
