Viva el Arte - Mariachi

The Marjorie Luke Theatre and UCSB Arts & Lectures present this FREE family performance as part of this seasons 2018-2019 Viva el Arte Santa Barbara series. Two-time Grammy winners, Mariachi Los Camperos, kick off 2019 with free family concerts including this extra 4 pm matinee and evening 7pm concerts at The Luke. Mariachi Los Camperos is one of the most renowned mariachi ensembles in the world and is widely recognized for its role in popularizing mariachi in the United States. Under the leadership of the ensemble’s late founder, Jose Natividad “Nati” Cano, Los Camperos became known for their world-class musicianship, artful interpretation of classic tunes, inventive arrangements, and tight vocal harmonies. Los Camperos are fantastic vocalists as well as accomplished musicians on traditional mariachi instruments: violin, trumpet, guitar, vihuela and guitarrón. Based at La Fonda in Los Angeles, Los Camperos tour internationally. Earlier this year, Los Camperos collaborated with the New York City Opera and Houston Grand Opera in productions of the mariachi opera Cruzar la Cara de la Luna.
