There’s no better way to showcase a cultural bonanza than to feature it in a popular venue like the Hollywood Bowl. For 29 years, Mariachi USA has filled the Bowl with the best mariachi bands from Mexico and the United States. Back in 1990, founder-creator Rodri J. Rodriguez started Mariachi USA as a means to celebrate both the art form and the tradition, and the event is now considered the premier mariachi music festival in the world. This year’s showcase will feature performances by folkloric dancers Ballet Mi Tierra and bands Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlan, Mariachi Las Alteñas, Mariachi Los Arrieros and Mariachi Los Reyes. This year’s special guest performers will be the legendary Trio Los Panchos. Also, per tradition, the music and cultural festival will feature a fireworks extravaganza by Pyro Spectaculars.
