Mariachi De Mi Tierra is a mariachi first organized in 2009 with the original name “Mariachi Juvenil De Mi Tierra” and is composed of local area youth varying between 13-19 years of age. The goal of Mariachi De Mi Tierra is to provide youth interested in learning to play mariachi music, which is a rare opportunity in our community. If your interested in being a part of Mariachi De Mi Tierra please contact Martin Lopez. It also provides an opportunity to learn more about the cultural history behind the music, improve self esteem, presentation skills, and communication skills of participating youth. Mariachi De Mi Tierra is growing in the number of participants and improving their musical talents to enrich our community. Mariachi De Mi Tierra has participated in many community functions such as the Boise Holiday Parade, where we were awarded 1st place ” Best Musical Adaptation of the Theme”, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, local area churches, Cinco De Mayo celebrations, Taco Feed Parades, festivals, and special performances at local schools.
