MEXICO TAKES MARIACHI CONTEST TO GLOBAL SCALE
Does performing sad mariachi music make you happy? Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through its Institute of Mexicans Abroad, is challenging musicians from around the world to enter a mariachi contest. It’s part of the country’s 2010 observance of the bicentennial of independence and centennial of the revolution. Winners get an expense-paid trip to Mexico, including round-trip airfare, two weeks’ lodging, meals, and performance opportunities and activities in five cities. The contest is part of a government effort to promote Mexican culture worldwide by building awareness of mariachi music, a national icon. Participants can submit a CD or DVD to a Mexican consulate or embassy. Entry deadline is April 30. Winners will be announced July 20 and will visit Mexico in the fall. Application forms are available at the Redes Mexico Web site, www.redesmexico.mx.
