MARIACHI SOL DE MEXICO DE JOSE HERNANDEZ WITH VIKKI CARR
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10 AT 7:30PM
Los Angeles based Mariachi Sol de Mexico will perform in Austin, Texas at the Long Center for the Performing Arts next month. Sol de Mexico offers traditional mariachi sounds embellished with fresh contemporary passion and powerful new rhythms. The deep love and passion the ensemble members share for mariachi perfectly captures the spirit and artistry of their culture.
Sharing the stage will be special guest Vikki Carr, the Grammy Award-winning, Texas-born singer whose five-decade career spans 60 best-selling recordings and at least two continents. Her music embraces both English and Spanish, and she is among the first artists to have bridged the cultures of the United States and Latin America. The event is sure to be a very special musical evening made possible by community partners like Univision TV and the Hispanic Alliance for the Arts.
Members of Mariachi Sol de Mexico include Director: Jose Hernandez, Violins: Erick Hernandez, Fernando Moreno, Guadalupe Gonzalez, Gustavo Peña, Joaquin Rodriguez and Roberto Lopez; Trumpets: Jorge Contreras, Roberto Diazs; Vihuela: Antonio Zuniga, Guitar: Jesus Hernandez; Guitarron: Jorge Flores, Arpa: Guillermo Acuña.
