Learn How Jonathan Palomar joined Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán
On Wednesday, Dec. 4th, Jonathan Palomar, guitarist and vocalist of world-renowned Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán, will be at the Instituto Cultural de México sharing stories about his life, music, and his journey to becoming one of the most beloved and iconic members of Mariachi Vargas.
Jonathan will discuss why San Antonio and the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza are important to him in this special Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza Presentation that is free and open to the public.
The beloved guitarist’s greatness can be attributed in part to the fact that he descends from a legendary musical family. His father Rafael Palomar was a vocalist and guitarist with Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán for 23 years (1980–2003) and his grandfather Román Palomar is best known as author of the famous cumbia “El Mariachi Loco.”
Jonathan joined Mariachi Vargas in 2017 as a guitarist and vocalist. He is widely recognized for his spellbinding interpretation of “Llamarada” which premiered at the San Antonio Film Festival earlier this summer.
“UP-CLOSE WITH JONATHAN PALOMAR gives people the opportunity to get to know members of Mariachi Vargas and learn from their experiences as artists and musicians,” says Cynthia Muñoz, Producer of the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza. “The event, along with the National Mariachi Group and Vocal Competitions, will take place prior to the grand finale concert at the Lila Cockrell Theatre on Saturday, December 7,” she added.
Celebrate the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza’s 25th Anniversary from December 1-7 with numerous events scheduled to be held throughout the City. A detailed schedule of events can be found here.
