We are proud to bring back Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán after their extremely popular performances in 2010 and 2013. No other mariachi in history has had a trajectory or influence remotely comparable to theirs; they are widely considered the finest mariachi
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 their 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.
