MARIACHI MEXICO ANTIGUO presented by The Oaks on The Square

Mariachi Mexico Antiguo symbolizes extraordinary musicianship and a renewed focus on the tradition of Mariachi. Established in 2010, Mariachi Mexico Antiguo is comprised of dedicated and talented musicians. As ambassadors of the mariachi genre, Mariachi Mexico Antiguo has performed by invitation throughout the Western United States as well as throughout the New England area. Mariachi Mexico Antiguo has also worked with renowned artists such as Beatriz Adriana, Graciela Beltran, Gildardo Alvarez, Jesus "Chuy" Guzman, Juan Valentin and, in 2015, Placido Domingo. Mexico Antiguo has been called "a group that captivates audiences with its distinct interpretation of mariachi music."

Mariachi Mexico Antiguo moved two and a half years ago from Las Vegas, NV to Connecticut. Since arriving they have had the opportunity to perform at the Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts, the Lowell Folk Festival, the Daffodil Festival, the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, the Autorino Center for the Arts and Humanities at University of Saint Joseph, and at various multicultural festivals throughout the New England area.

Mariachi Mexico Antiguo will be joined by Mariachi Nuevo Sol, a performing group from the Mendoza Academy of the Performing Arts, an organization named after the founder of the first Mariachi program in the State of Connecticut, Evangeline Mendoza. Mariachi Nuevo Sol will perform during the intermission of Mariachi Mexico Antiguo's performance.
