San Jose’s Hammer Theatre Center presents Mariachi Sol de Mexico with the blazing sounds of its 13-piece ensemble in a joyous holiday celebration. The show, “A Merry-Achi Christmas,” offers a fusion of traditional holiday spirit with the colors and traditions of Mexican and American Christmas songs and carols. This four times Grammy Award nominated ensemble’s original rhythms, fresh sounds, and inspiring new arrangements have energized the world of mariachi for over thirty years. “Merry-Achi Christmas” will be performed 3:00pm & 7:30pm, Saturday, December 11 at the Hammer Theatre Center (101 Paseo De San Antonio) in San José, CA.

Mariachi Sol De Mexico was founded by fifth-generation mariachi José Hernández in 1981, with the goal of introducing mariachi music to audiences all over the world. Their repertoire of music includes classical, pop, jazz, swing, and even Broadway tunes. A testament to their versatility, Mariachi Sol De Mexico has collaborated with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and shared the stage with popular Mexican artists Selena and Vicente Fernandez, as well as music greats Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Jose Feliciano, The Beach Boys, and many more.
