The historic tradition of mariachi music has roots incities like Guadalajara and Mexico City, places where the festive folk style lived its past glory days in the mid-1900s. Today, the future of the evolving genre may rest in the hands of a young dynamic ensemble from the capital of the American Midwest: Chicago’s Mariachi Herencia de México.
“‘Amor Eterno’ is the first single and music video from our new album Escencia , Vol. 2. To record this beautiful song during these difficult times was very inspirational for us. We’re excited to be able to present our new, duet version of this timeless classic by the legendary Juan Gabriel,” remarks the members of Mariachi Herencia.
This fresh version of a classic mariachi song comes from an unlikely source: a four-year-old ensemble that started as a student group in Chicago public schools and is still composed of teenagers, mostly between 14 and this album shows how far they’ve come since their debut CD four years ago, which gained them a Latin GRAMMY® nomination.
