Mariachi Master Jóse Hernàndez and his Sol de Mexico have a history as rich and colorful as Mariachi music itself. A proud fifth generation Mariachi musician, Maestro Hernàndez’ roots trace back to 1879, to the birthplace of Mariachi, the state of Jalisco, Mexico.
No one else on the Mariachi music scene navigates the warm waters of classical, pop, jazz, swing and Broadway tunes with such grace. Even to those weaned on traditional Mariachi, Jose’s organic, irreverent renditions have become instant classics.
Under the leadership of Hernàndez, Mariachi Sol de Mexico are the only Mariachi group in the world that performs in the classical music circuit (in addition to concerts at Performing Arts Centers, casinos, and festivals). They have performed with the New Mexico, Denver, Sacramento, San Francisco and Inland Empire Symphony Orchestras, as well as with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In 2007, the group toured worldwide with Luis Miguel. They also perform regularly at various Mariachi festivals throughout their home base of California and around the United States.
Their popular holiday show, “A MERRY-ACHI CHRISTMAS” includes holiday music of Europe, US, and Latin America, along with selections from the songbook of Mariachi classics.
