Thursday, January 31, 2019, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Part academic lecture, part musical journey, this fascinating night of sight and sound will explore the birth of Mariachi during the 19th century, as it developed throughout the Mexican states of Jalisco, Colima, Nayarit, and Michoacán, who all claim its origin.

José R. Torres-Ramos of the University of North Texas, will delve into the history and the evolution of Mariachi tradition, alongside curated audio selections and thrilling live performances from Javier Aguilar and Mariachi Mexicanisimo.

A celebration of life in baptisms, weddings, holidays, and funerals, Mariachi enriches Fort Worth’s cultural landscape, and continues to be an essential form of entertainment and ceremony for all.
