As someone who covered the mariachi and folklórico dance beats for better than 30 years in Tucson, I know a fair number of key sources for my upcoming documentary on the rise of the mariachi movement in Tucson. But there are many I don’t know about as well.

And it should be plainly stated that the folklórico side of this story is equally important.

I need the help of people in the community to help me find the sources who have important parts of the story to tell. No suggestion is a bad one.

Social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are ideal for spreading the word about this project and helping me get in contact with the sources I need to reach.

And for God’s sake, don’t hesitate to correct me if I get something wrong. The object of this documentary is to reveal as much of the truth as possible.

You can learn more about the project in general by clicking here, through my Facebook page on the project, or through the ongoing blog.
