Introduction: Taking “mariachi to whole new heights.” (Chicago Sun-Times).
¡Viva el mariachi! A new generation takes mariachi to whole new heights—Mariachi Herencia de México presents an unforgettable night of Mexican music and culture in Herederos (the “Heirs”).
Simultaneously honoring the past, celebrating the present, and creating the future of mariachi music, Latin GRAMMY®-nominee, Mariachi Herencia de México, has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States.
The historic tradition of mariachi music has its roots of origin in cities such as Guadalajara and Mexico City. As the ever-evolving genre’s influence spread, it reached Chicago and birthed the Mariachi Herencia de México.
The energetic, virtuosic Latin GRAMMY-nominated group has issued chart-topping albums and performed across the North American continent. Nuestra Herencia, their 2017 debut album, topped the Latin streaming charts. 2018’s Herencia de la Tierra Mía was produced by celebrated industry veteran Javier Limón and charted atop all major streaming services. 2019’s Esencia topped industry charts, while a second volume, issued in 2020 performed similarly.
In 2022, Herederos appeared as the group were performing a wildly successful North American tour.
