Mariachi Sol de Mexicode Jse HernndezAmericas Premier MariachiPart of the romance of Mariachi songs is that all things are possible.The humor, the spirit, and even the bittersweet, inspire us to a worldwhere we live out our dreams.In that same way, much of the excitement of Jse HernndezMariachi Sol de Mexico is that all things mariachi are possible.While his family tree is rooted in five generations of Mariachimusicians that hail from La Sierra del Tigre region of Jalisco, Jose built on that foundation to grow mariachi music in new lands, innew musical genres, and in the hearts of new audiences.Unprecedented, unrivaled and uninhibited, the impact of Jose Hernandez and his Sol de Mexico on mariachi and all music isundeniable. After forming Mariachi Sol de Mexico in 1981, Joses charismatic arrangements and signature trumpet playing made thegroup an instant and lasting success: Sol de Mexico has played to sold out halls from New Yorks Lincoln Center to Via del Mar inSantiago, Chile. Not only were they the first Mariachi group to play concerts in Beijing, China and Pyongyang, North Korea; theshows were sold out! They have also played for four U.S. Presidents (Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and GeorgeW. Bush) including performances at the White House!Right from the start. Jose has been an innovator, as evidenced by creating a cohesive collaboration with symphonies throughout theUnited States. The marriage of the styles is so seamless that it seems natural now. Everybody in Latin America serenades theirgirlfriend or their wife with mariachi music - because they see it in the movies. But it has evolved so much over the last 20 years itsalmost like a classical art form. Jose says.Indeed, the theatrical aspect of Sol de Mexicos performances has been an attraction to Hollywood for soundtracks, where he hasprovided music since the 1980s. In fact, Sol de Mexicos music recently was featured in the movie Glory Road and in AcademyAward nominated Seabiscuit.Also under Joses guiding hands, the art form has taken on many other successful, fun and creative styles bringing more generationsinto the mariachi family. He created Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, Americas first all-female mariachi ensemble. In 1991 heformed a childrens music foundation, the Mariachi Heritage Society, because the importance of maintaining the spirit of culture isonly equaled by the importance of giving children the tools for success in any endeavor.The versatility of Sol de Mexico to expand to new audiences has led to fabulous, unexpected collaborations, such as with the BeachBoys and Willie Nelson. Within the world of Latin music, Sol de Mexico has played alongside stars such as Vicente Fernandez.Selena, Jose Feliciano and a record-breaking concert tour with the one and only Luis Miguel. Joses records have been nominated formultiple Grammy awards and it is a tribute to the impact of Jose that Sol de Mexico was invited to play at the inaugural LatinGrammy Awards.But more than awards and credits, it is the passion and love of the mariachi tradition that courses through Joses veins into audienceshearts. Although he has played for heads of state, it is not surprising to see Jose perform at his famous mariachi restaurant, CielitoLindo. Arranging and writing mariachi music is a legacy that Jose respects and loves.I am a fifth-generation mariachi musician - my dad came here in the 1940s when there was one place in Los Angeles that hadmariachi music and the band had to pay the restaurant owner 2S cents per song to make up for the lost jukebox quarter. But my fatheralways said that the day mariachi music is work is the day you die.Que Viva Mariachi indeed!www.soldemexicomusic.comfacebook.com/mariachisoldemexicodejosehernandeztwitter.com/JoseSoldeMexico
