Part of the Clinton Parks and Recreation’s Annual Summer Concert Series.
This concert highlights Mexican culture through the living tradition of mariachi with Fiesta del Norte, Connecticut’s first mariachi band. Their repertoire of traditional Mexican folk and popular music spans the mariachis of Jalisco to the harp music of Vera Cruz, to the marimbas of Chiapas, all interpreted on authentic instruments such as the guitar, guitarrón, violin, and trumpet. Translations, storytelling, and cultural insights are interwoven between songs.
This program is supported by a grant from the Mass Cultural Council.
