Mariachi music was not initially Acencion Inestroza’s strong suit. He grew up listening to traditional country music from Nicaragua, and played the piano in a salsa band. But it didn’t take him long before he was playing violin and trumpet, mariachi style. Today, he leads the Hendersonville-based Mariachi Fiesta Tapatia.
More than a dance party, this show was brainy disco: a dissertation on how to raise the roof. The two bands took the Orange Peel stage on Thursday, June 7. Photos by Rich Orris.
