The group moved to Connecticut from Las Vegas in 2016 to lead an established mariachi academy for young people in Wallingford. Since then the group has become well known for its joyous and authentic performances in festival, concert, church, and community settings, and they have established three additional academies – in Hartford, Bridgeport, and West Haven. Rodbel Virula is teaching guitarron (bass guitar) to a young musician under the CHS Southern New England Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program. Mariachi Mexico Antiguo has produced two CDs of their music.
