We are proud to bring back Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán after an extremely popular UMS debut in November 2010. Mariachi Vargas is one of the most highly regarded ensembles in the history of mariachi, decisively shaping the art form. Founded in a small city near Jalisco by Don Gaspar Vargas in the 1890s, this band basically invented the modern mariachi, and five generations later, is still playing today. They have recorded over 100 CDs, with original songs and arrangements that set the standard for mariachi music. Masters at melding the old world style of mariachi music with new, innovative pieces, Mariachi Vargas is appealing to audiences across all generations.
