Tracy: Mariachi Los Camperos
February 25 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Three-time Grammy® winner Mariachi Los Camperos presents “Viva Mexico!” Acclaimed by audiences at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, The Smithsonian Folklife Festival and other major venues throughout the U.S., their skillfully arranged versions of classic mariachi melodies and regional styles of traditional music feature full-throated harmonies and unforgettable festive pageantry. Mariachi Los Camperos was founded in 1961 by Natividad “Nati” Cano and has played a fundamental role in the development of mariachi music in the United States by mentoring new generations of musicians and expanding audiences. A visionary leader, Cano’s goal was to take mariachi beyond cantinas and onto the stages of the biggest and best concert halls. Today, under the leadership of longtime musical director Jesus “Chuy” Guzman, this groundbreaking mariachi ensemble continues to realize that vision and remains a beacon of artistic excellence and deep community engagement. Join us on a journey through the many states of Mexico and experience the array of colorful traditional songs with dances performed by Grupo Folclorico Chiquina Palafox.
