about this event
The Soul of Mexico brings together Villalobos Brothers and Mariachi Reynas de Los Angeles® for an unforgettable performance.
The Villalobos Brothers have been called one of today’s leading contemporary Mexican ensembles. Their original compositions and arrangements masterfully blend and celebrate the richness of Mexican folk music with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music.
Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles® has blazed the trail for female mariachis. Established in 1994, the group had a strong beginning thanks to the mentorship of Lola Bertran, La Reina de La Música Ranchera. In those early days, Maestro Jóse Hernàndez saw the potential in this all-female ensemble and fostered the development of the group. Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles® has since gone on to record three albums and share the stage with world-renowned musicians like Vicki Carr, Guadalupe Pineda, and Lucha Villa. They have performed for some of the world’s highest profile celebrities, including Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey, and President Barack and Michelle Obama.
