This popular festive and joyous holiday performance, celebrates and honors the unique cultural traditions of Mexico. Mariachi Los Camperos is led by Jesus “Chuy” Guzman and the ensemble is considered one of the finest in the world. The ensemble will bring the pageantry and excitement of Mexican holiday customs to life, beginning with a re-enactment of La Posada. An abundance of music and dance with traditional ballads, as well as, sing-along holiday favorites, makes this a perfect holiday show for the whole family.

Los Angeles–based Mariachi Los Camperos’ abundant accolades, including multiple Grammy® awards and nominations and highly praised performances on premier concert stages such as Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Getty Center, can easily obscure the fact that its leaders come from humble roots, deep within a mariachi tradition shaped by family and community. The group’s founder, Nati Cano, was a third-generation mariachi musician from the small town of Ahuisculco in the west Mexican state of Jalisco. From 1961 to his death in 2014, he lived his dream, forging his own group from his artistic vision and determination. Over his musical career, he challenged the attitudes that, during his youth in Mexico, led formally trained musical peers to look down on his beloved rural and working-class music. In the United States, he worked against class and racial prejudice that relegated Mexicans and their music to second-class status. In the end, he succeeded both socially and artistically, as borne out by the group’s and his own many honors and performances in prestigious venues across the United States and Mexico.
