Read about Mariachi in the Harvard Crimson:
"A performance of a well-known Ranchera, "Tú, Solo Tú," by Mariachi Veritas, a student band, led the audience to break out into song. .."
(from Crimson article on Presencia Latina)
A follow-up editorial on the same historical event began with:
"The rendition of "Tu, Solo, Tu" performed by Harvard's own Mariachi Veritas that could be heard wafting out of Lowell Lecture Hall
last weekend was not the only beautiful sound emanating from Presencia Latina..."
