A proud fifth-generation mariachi musician, Maestro Jose Hernandez and his platinum-selling Sol de Mexico have broken countless barriers in mariachi music, becoming the first mariachi ensemble to be nominated for a Grammy Award. Their original rhythms, fresh sounds and inspiring ideas have energized the world of mariachi for more than 30 years. A graceful blend of classical, pop, jazz, swing and Broadway tunes, Hernandez’s organic, irreverent renditions have become instant classics. This special performance includes treasured holiday favorites and selections from the mariachi songbook.
“Mariachi Sol de Mexico stands out from the crowd by creating near-perfect mariachi music. … They play with their heart, with their traditions and with their passion. It is an authentic cultural experience that should not be missed.” – Source Weekly
