A Mariachi tries to lure customers at Mariachi Plaza, Los Angeles.

Mariachi Plaza is unique in this country, and a gem for Los Angeles. All day, men in the traditional clothes wait for customers in need of a band for any event that calls for a Mariachi. They arrive in the square early with their instruments and wait to earn their living, with impromptu concerts taking place when business is slow.
