Mexican mariachis celebrated their national day with a festival of music and serenades.

Hundreds of musicians gathered in one of the capital' s main plazas where they gave a concert and heard mass in honour of Saint Cecilia.

For the last 31 years, Mexico City's mariachis have organised themselves on November 22 to honour their patron saint.
