Great Hall Concert Series – Veronica Robles Mariachi
April 27 @ 8:00 pm
Discover the vibrant world of Mariachi with Veronica Robles! Veronica Robles is a Mariachi singer, musician and dancer from Mexico City, who has become a cultural icon in the New England area. She and her band will perform not only traditional mariachi songs, but music from other Latin American countries, as well as her own compositions.
Originating in the rural areas of western Mexico, mariachi is a traditional musical genre deeply rooted in the cultural fabric of Mexico. It embodies the heart, soul, and history of this proud nation – incorporating strains from indigenous music, the classical music of Spain, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. With its distinctive blend of brass, strings, and vocals, this unifying art form has become synonymous with both celebration and poignant moments. From lively fiestas to intimate serenades under moonlit skies, mariachi is an integral part of life’s most cherished moments.
As a singer, Veronica has released eight albums and has performed at venues such as The Memorial Hatch Shell and Fenway Park, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, Providence Performing Arts Center in Rhode Island, The Dallas Convention Center, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, among others. She is a Neighborhood Salon Luminary at the Gardner Museum, and she is a Celebrity Series of Boston Neighborhood Arts program artist.
