Mariachi Estrella: Ad Astra Per Aspera

Produced by Justicia, Inc. and via Dolorosa Films, this documentary explores the first all-women Mariachi band of Kansas that rose to fame through their skill and uniqueness.  Although Mariachi Estrella did not deliberately develop an all-female mariachi band, the founding members saw it as an opportunity to have creative freedom in mariachi, which was dominated by men for generations. 

This local story is significant to the larger culture of Topeka and the state of Kansas. In this documentary you will learn more about these groundbreaking artists and the harrowing story of Topeka’s Mariachi Estrella
