Pepe Aguilar, his Family, along with Christian Nodal recover the Jaripeo tradition.
The saga continues and is re-invented. Having one of the most solid careers in Latin music, winner of nine GRAMMY Awards, together with the most important accolades in the Latin music industry and undoubtedly one of the best Latin voices, Pepe Aguilar returns to arenas on horseback with a very ambitious concept: JARIPEO SIN FRONTERAS (JARIPEO WITHOUT BORDERS)
More than 30 years ago, Antonio Aguilar toured the entire American continent accompanied by his family with the first equestrian show in the history of Latin show business, turning it into one of the most successful shows of the time. Don Antonio, Señora Flor Silvestre along with little Toño and Pepe Aguilar changed the direction of Mexican music become references of the genre in the process.
Now, the “new” Aguilar Family will not only revive the Jaripeo tradition, but just like the musical fusion that Pepe Aguilar has created and that makes him immediately recognizable, Jaripeo Sin Fronteras will be an update of those great shows, combining today’s technology with traditional Jaripeo creating a new concept that will be identified again with the Aguilar Family as of 2018.
“With this Jaripeo format we are combining different nationalities as well as evolved modalities of Jaripeo and the current rodeo”, comments Pepe Aguilar.
This show goes beyond music and technology, rescues the lost traditions and results in a mega show that includes everything from the established successes of Pepe Aguilar, to the new and successful proposal of Mariachi by Christian Nodal, as well as two time Latin Grammy nominee, Leonardo Aguilar; the incomparable charisma and talent of Angela Aguilar; highly trained horses; Champion bulls from the American rodeo; charros and cowboys in fierce competition; “Ratilla” the Spanish bullfighter, American clowns taking their life into their own hands with bulls, the elegance of the Charro tradition with Tomás Garcilazo, animal comedy with “Whiplash” the monkey cowboy all this framed by the music of Mariachi “El Zacatecano” and Banda Azul Tequila.
It will be a privilege to see Pepe Aguilar singing on horseback as the head of a show in which nostalgia and modernity will dance to the sound of Banda and Mariachi, as the Aguilars of the 3rd millennium will again offer an equestrian show like the one that put Mexico’s name in its highest standing throughout the world. Jaripeo Sin Fronteras mixes tradition and modern technology creating an unprecedented show.

Pepe Aguilar is the son of Mexican icons Antonio Aguilar and Flor Silvestre. “Being born during a tour and having studied my craft on the road has given a particular philosophy to my career,” says Pepe with the same feeling of elegance and honesty that characterize his songs.
Pepe Aguilar’s career has progressed in parallel with the absolute transformation of the music industry over the past 25 years. Considered by critics as “a real star of Latin music,” Pepe has garnered an impressive amount of awards, and to paraphrase the legendary Rubén Fuentes: “Pepe Aguilar is a before and after in Mexican music.”
