Long considered one of the world’s great mariachi bands, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán returns to Cal Performances on Saturday, September 20 at 8:00 p.m. in Zellerbach Hall. The ensemble’s spirited and infectious music, the specialty of this 14-piece band, has been featured in more than 50 recordings and 200 movies since the group’s founding in 1898. The band includes sixth generation musicians and first received popular acclaim in the United States when it appeared on Linda Ronstadt’s 1987 Grammy-winning album, Canciones de mi Padre. The concert will include traditional and popular mariachi music, such as pasodobles, valses, bailables, polkas, and danzones. The program will be announced from the stage. Tickets are on sale now.
