Mariachi Del Sol
Sounds of Mexico, from the Soft Romantic Ballads to Lively Ranchero Songs
Mariachi means one of the most exciting and enchanting musical ensembles found anywhere in the world.  Treat your self to an exciting blend of stunning vocals, Latin guitars, shimmering strings and sparkling brass. The Mariachi Del Sol is one of Canada's outstanding Mexican Music ensembles.

Formed by Octavio Carrillo in 1987 the band blends the traditional sounds of Mexico, from the soft romantic ballads to lively ranchero songs.   Mariachi Del Sol delivers the authentic flavour of Mexico. The players wear traditional Gala Charro costumes, complete with over one hundred real silver ornaments; costumes that identify them as professional Mariachi musicians of very serious repute. Since its formation Mariachi Del Sol has performed an impressive number of private and public functions in Canada and the United States, including engagements for the Mexican government and its tourism board.Normally performing as a small group (three to six people), the full size Mariachi Del Sol can be ten musicians or more.

Mariachi Del Sol has represented Canada on a number of occasions, the 11th International Mariachi Festival in Guadalajara City, Mexico and Mariachi - The Spirit of Mexico Tour were two of the most influential.  Along with representing Canada Mariachi Del Sol has also played some career boosting shows here in the country and have shared the stage with many renowned musicians, some examples include: being the main performer at the Mexican Independence Day Celebration in Vancouver, playing with Mariachi of the Americas, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver and playing with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and Mariachi of the Americas, at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA.
