¡Viva el Mariachi! Latin Grammy-nominated Mariachi Herencia de México presents one night of vibrant mariachi music in HEREDEROS. Simultaneously honoring the past, celebrating the present, and creating the future of regional Mexican music, Mariachi Herencia de México is paving the way for a new generation of mariachi performers. Mariachi Herencia de México honors the legacy of mariachi music with a colorful and unforgettable experience of Mexican music and culture.

The historic tradition of mariachi music has roots in cities like Guadalajara and Mexico City. Today, the future of the evolving genre rests in the hands of a dynamic ensemble from the capital of the American Midwest: Chicago’s Mariachi Herencia de México. The Latin GRAMMY-nominated group of young musicians have released four highly acclaimed studio albums with chart-topping debuts on both the Billboard and the iTunes Latin Albums charts, defying a music industry trend and pointing to a revival in recorded mariachi music.

Mariachi Herencia de México is set to release the band’s fifth studio album titled HEREDEROS, which includes eleven stunning tracks with arrangements by the band’s legendary musical director Rigoberto Alfaro. “It’s a masterpiece,” says Jonathan Clark, a mariachi expert and historian. “This is mariachi music at its most sophisticated and most modernistic."

In 2017, Mariachi Herencia de México received a Latin GRAMMY nomination in the “Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album” category for the group’s debut album titled Nuestra Herencia. The band has toured throughout the U.S., México and Canada performing in some of the most prestigious venues across the continent, including The Kennedy Center, Millennium Park and Guadalajara’s Teatro Degollado.
