Mexican folk music heats up in the hands of Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán, an ensemble of world-class musicians presenting a festive repertoire of rhythms, dance and vocals. With a history of showmanship going back more than 100 years, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán performs popular regional styles such as the waltz, polka and huapango with an interactive flair, engaging the crowd with sing-alongs and spontaneous "gritos" -- the Mexican version of "yahoo!" But above all, their music takes center stage, as the boisterous band thrills with heart-wrenching vocals, virtuosic instrumentation and tight-knit ensemble work. Learn More
