Fiesta Navidad

“A festival of sound and color.” (Capital Times) This Grammy Award-winning ensemble brings a festive and joyful holiday performance that celebrates and honors the unique cultural traditions of Mexico. Born into a family of mariachi musicians in Jalisco, Mexico, Natividad “Nati” Cano formed Mariachi Los Camperos nearly 50 years ago and they have since emerged as a major driving force of the mariachi musical tradition worldwide. This talented group has recorded nine critically acclaimed albums, including four in the past 10 years with DC-based Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. Their 2008 album “Amor, Dolor y Lagrimas” earned a Grammy award and last year Smithsonian Folkways released their first instructional DVD “The Sounds of Mariachi: Lessons in Mariachi Performance” Mariachi Los Comperos has made appearances on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson, the Grammy Awards Show, and in the “Sex and the City” movie, and has frequently collaborated with Linda Ronstadt. Titled Fiesta Navidad this dynamic program mixes traditional Mexican and American holiday songs with energetic dancing, authentic and vibrantly-hued costumes, and an audience sing-along.
