Formed in 1981 by Maestro Hernandez, Grammy nominated and worldly renowned Mariachi Sol De Mexico releases their 14th album. Sol de Mexico is recognized as one of the world's greatest mariachi groups and continues to justify their popularity through impeccable recordings which they offer to the world of Mariachi music.
Unprecedented, unrivaled and uninhibited, the impact of Jose Hernandez and his Sol de Mexico on Mariachi and all music is undeniable. Jose's charismatic arrangements and signature trumpet playing made the group an instant lasting success: Sol de Mexico has collaborated and played alongside a variety of major Mainstream and Latin artists as well as sold out halls from New York's Lincoln Center to Vi??a del Mar in Santiago, Chile. Not only were they the first Mariachi group to play concerts in Beijing, China and Pyongyang, North Korea but the shows were also sold out. They have also played for four U.S. Presidents including performances at the White House.
More than awards and credits, it is the passion and love of the Mariachi tradition that courses through Jose' veins into audiences' hearts and you can experience it in this new highly anticipated album, Mariachi Pride and Passion. This impeccable production created by Mariachi King Jose Hernandez with Sol de Mexico's diverse and growing fan base in mind is a compilation of traditional Mexican classics that includes "Cuando Calienta el Sol", "Volver Volver" and more.
This record establishes the true Mariachi sound that has been passed down six generations by the Hernandez Family. 129 years of Mariachi music since 1879, thus the title Mariachi Pride and Passion, con Jose Hernandez y Su Mariachi Sol De Mexico.
The album is available at all participating retail outlets nationwide as well as on iTunes.
"Mariachi Pride and Passion is what I feel for music!"
