Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán

 

No other mariachi in history has had a trajectory or influence remotely comparable to theirs; they are widely considered the finest in the world.

Founded in a small city near Jalisco by Don Gaspar Vargas in the 1890s, this band basically invented the modern mariachi. With world-class vocalists and instrumentalists, flawless ensemble work, impeccable taste in repertoire, and spellbinding showmanship, the group never fails to engage its audience, eliciting spontaneous gritos, sing-alongs, and one ovation after another with heart-wrenching vocals and virtuosic instrumentals. Masters at melding the old world style of mariachi music with new, innovative pieces, Mariachi Vargas is appealing to audiences across all generations.

Opening act features Ballet Folklórico de Detroit and Mariachi Nuevo Santander from Roma, TX — the 2019 National Mariachi Group Competition High School Division winner.
