The Chicago-based mariachi group has released four studio albums and is set to release Herederos, which features 11 tracks with arrangements by the band’s musical director Rigoberto Alfaro. The band’s sophisticated and modern approach to mariachi music landed them a Latin GRAMMY nomination for Best Mariachi/Ranchero Album in 2017. Their soar to the top of the Billboard and iTunes Latin charts defies a music industry trend and points to a revival of recorded mariachi music. Mariachi Herencia de México has toured throughout the U.S., México and Canada performing in some of the most prestigious venues across the continent, including The John F. Kennedy Center, Millennium Park, and Guadalajara’s Teatro Degollado.
Mariachi Herencia de México will be joined by Lupita Infante, the granddaughter of Mexican icon Pedro Infante. The singer-songwriter who has received two Latin GRAMMY nominations for Best Regional Mexican Song and Best Regional Mexican Album. Together, Infante and Mariachi Herencia de México honor the legacy they inherited with a colorful celebration of Mexican music and culture.
