200 Años Música de Mexicana will take the Boch Center Wang Theatre stage on Saturday, October 31!
Banda El Recodo and Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlán, two of the most legendary bands in the history of Mexican music, which through their incomparable careers have represented Mexico worldwide, will join forces for a historic tour that celebrates their unquestionable cultural legacy.
The extensive tour titled “200 Años”, takes its name from the time that together the two groups have remained relevant, present, and successful. Banda El Recodo recently celebrated its 80th anniversary, while the famed and mythical Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlán was founded 120 years ago.
“We decided to bring together Banda El Recodo and Mariachi Vargas for a tour in which both groups will perform their greatest hits together on the same stage. This is completely different to what’s being done currently in the music industry. Often times, these types of projects are difficult to solidify, fortunately in this case we were able to make it happen and I think the results are going to be very positive. This show will make history.” – Iván Fernández, Viva Tu Música
Through this historic tour, ”La Madre de Todas las Bandas” (The Mother of all Bands), as El Recodo is colloquially known, and “El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo” (The Best Mariachi in the World), which is what the Mariachi Vargas is considered, will bring together multiple generations of music fans, who will be able to enjoy the best of these two musical genres. These ensembles have left their imprint in the history of music in Mexico and through their songs have transcended borders and remained relevant over the years.
