Mariachi New Zealand is an authentic Mexican Mariachi band.
Frontman Fidel Pimentel hails from Veracruz Mexico and has been in a Mariachi band since he was 15 years old.
From there he studied many Mexican rhythms such as guapangos, rancheras, corridos, boleros, son jarocho to name a few.
Mariachi wants to show this style of music live in New Zealand and promote authentic flavour. With this they can perform as a solo to a 5-piece full band.
