Led by Juan Zaragoza, Mariachi Las Olas de SB will present a program featuring music that celebrates the flora and fauna found in songs from Latin American cultures. For example, the moon, especially full moons, is a key protagonist in popular songs in Mexican, Mexican-American, and some Latin American cultures. Sones and corridos about cows, bulls, and horses are also an important part of the canon or collection of mariachi songs. The group will also present boleros and other mariachi favorites. Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 12 pm in the UCSB Music Bowl. Copresented by the Ethnomusicology Program in the Department of Music and the UCSB MultiCultural Center.
