Mariachi Sol de México de Jóse Hernàndez performs Thursday, Dec. 18, 7:30 p.m. at the Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St. "To believe in mariachi means having a passion for life itself," says Jóse Hernàndez, musician, composer and educator. The expression of México's authentic musical heritage lives on through the voice of Sol de México. Founded in 1981 by Hernandez, the platinum selling mariachi band has broken countless barriers in mariachi music, including becoming the first mariachi ensemble to be nominated for a Grammy. Their original rhythms, fresh sounds and inspiring ideas have energized the world of mariachi for over 30 years. For ticket information, visit Foxtucsontheater.ticketforce.com.
