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

Experience the sights and sounds of modern and ancient China with One World, One Dream, an Olympic spectacular featuring one hundred Chinese student performing artists. Combining music, dance, theater, martial arts and acrobatics, this high-energy production traces the history of the Olympics down through the centuries. Highlights include Chinese acrobats dating from the second century B.C.E.; Peking Opera techniques and costumes; and traditional musical instruments juxtaposed with up-to-the-minute modern musical instruments, staging and music.
Berkeley is one of only two U.S. cities to host this spectacular production which has been performed extensively in China, and is an invitation to all Americans to attend the Olympic Games in Beijing this summer.
