Mariachi Sol de Mexico: A Merri-Achi Christmas

Mariachi King José Hernández and his platinum-selling Sol de Mexico have a biography and history as rich and colorful as mariachi music itself. A proud fifth generation mariachi musician, Maestro Hernandez’ roots trace back to 1879 to the birthplace of mariachi, the State of Jalisco, Mexico. Ever since he founded his troupe in 1981, Hernandez has gone on to break countless barriers in the world of mariachi music and is recognized as having turned the genre into the international sensation it is today. The band's original rhythms, fresh sounds and inspiring ideas have energized the world of mariachi for more than 30 years. For this seasonal concert, enjoy a fusion of the traditional holiday spirit with the color, and the traditions of Mexican and American Christmas songs and carols.
