  1. That’s cool. I’d heard of Harvard’s mariachi and wondered if you’d be getting involved (or if you needed a break).

  2. No cheating. We want video of you in full gear and singing that song (which by the way, is one of my favorite mariachi songs).

  3. LIG,

    Video of my audition? I didn’t wear a mariachi traje; instead, I wore my Stanford shirt (first clean shirt I saw that morning) and was sitting down. But if someone records me at a concert singing that song, I will make sure to post it for y’all to enjoy.

    “Te solte la rienda” was one of my last choices for the audition. My top choice for my audition was Juan Gabriel’s “La diferencia” but at the last moment I panicked and sang “Te solte la rienda”.
