Traditional Mariachi Music

Saturday, October 7 at 2:00 p.m. 

Did you know that the tradition of Mariachi music dates back as far back as the 18th century in parts of western Mexico? Mariachi (also called son style music) was recognized in 2011 by UNESCO as an aspect of Mexico’s intangible cultural heritage because of its connection to Mexico’s identity. In celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, the Library honors this tradition by presenting live mariachi music by local musician Sam Guerrero.
