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

This was some of the best live jazz I've seen in a long, long time.
Quotes & Highlights
“The group was roaring with the kind of chemistry that could truly be deemed collective.” —San Francisco Chronicle
Winner of the “Rising Star Jazz Group of the Year” honors in the 2006 DownBeat Critics Poll, the SFJAZZ Collective is a powerhouse ensemble featuring some of the finest jazz performer/composers at work today—including DownBeat Critics Poll “Artist of the Year” honorees Dave Douglas (2006) and Joe Lovano (2001). Launched in 2004 by SFJAZZ—the presenter of the annual San Francisco Jazz Festival—the Collective has quickly become one of the most scintillating combos on the American and international jazz scenes.
