¡Aye, Chihuahua!
¡Aye, Chihuahua!

A cold beer, a lit cigarette, a tiny dog hot on his heels... a musician walks over to Mariachi Plaza on a Saturday in Boyle Heights. Despite the growing concerns over gentrification and redevelopment felt throughout the neighborhood on this afternoon the musicians do what they have done since the 1930s. Dressed in the traditional charro suits they gather at the plaza hoping they'll be hired to play music. Change is coming, but not today.
