Toronto Mariachi 3

In 1987, this Toronto Mariachi was invited to participate in the recording of Linda Ronstadt's Las Canciones de mi Padre. In working with the greatest Mariachi band of all time, Mariachi Vargas, the leader of this band had the idea of forming his own Mariachi Band, due to the lack of authentic representation of Mariachi music in Canada at the time. In 1998, the leader of this band began training musicians in traditional Mexican folk music. This gave birth to this Mariachi Band. Since then, they have evolved into a professional working ensemble, eager to bring Mexico's native music to the public.

During the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement, this Toronto Mariachi played for the President of Mexico on behalf of Canada. This performance prompted an invitation to the annual Mariachi conference in Mexico, The Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi. Since that time, this band has represented Canada at this annual event.

Toronto Mariachi venues

This group has performed at such venues as the Royal Ontario Museum, the Canadian National and Harbourfront. They have also performed at the WOMAD Festival, the International Hispanic Festival, the annual Mexican Independence Celebration at Nathan Phillips Square and Kempenfest. This Toronto Mariachi was named Toronto's Best Mariachi by Toronto Life Magazine in 1999.

This Toronto Mariachi, like the great City of Toronto, consists of a diverse mix of international cultures. Although the band members come from all over the world, they respect and do their best to preserve the traditional style and sound of Mexico's great Mariachi music.
