Mariachis and jazz in Guadalajara
The muse of Guadalajara
The University has become the hub of cultural life in the city. It is home to the Museum of the Arts, better known as MUSA. The museum is on the ground floor of the building that formerly housed the Rector’s Offices, and is home to the Auditorium murals of José Clemente Orozco. Entry is free.
Ay Jalisco, no te rajes (don’t chicken out)
The International Mariachi and Charrería Conference is in its 23rd year. Beyond galas and processions, it has another tradition: breaking Guinness World Records. On 26 August, they will try to beat the one for building a mosaic out of Mexican sombreros. To do this, they will have to beat Germany, the current champion, with 1,900.
