“His 14-piece orchestra arguably is the country’s best mariachi, not only because of its solid mariachi foundation, but also because of its trend-setting fusion with contemporary pop.”—Daily Pilot
Mariachi master José Hernández and his Sol de México boast a history as rich and colorful as mariachi music itself. A proud fifth-generation mariachi musician, Maestro Hernández’s roots trace back to 1879 and the birthplace of mariachi in the La Sierra del Tigre region of Jalisco. He fully embraces the mariachi’s romantic world view that all things are possible, and his unique, irreverent renditions of classical, pop, jazz, swing, and Broadway tunes have become instant classics. We are pleased to welcome this Grammy-nominated ensemble to Hodgson Concert Hall for the first time as we gather to celebrate Día de los Muertos!
Join us for a free pre-performance talk by Jared Holton in Ramsey Concert Hall from 6:45-7:15 pm.
