Energetic, virtuosic Latin Grammy-nominated group Mariachi Herencia de México will return to Capitol Theater at the Overture Center for the Arts on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. to showcase songs from their latest album, “Herederos.”
“Nuestra Herencia,” their 2017 debut album, topped the Latin streaming charts, according to a press release from the Overture Center, while 2018’s “Herencia de la Tierra Mía” was produced by celebrated industry veteran Javier Limón and charted atop all major streaming services. 2019’s “Esencia” topped industry charts, while a second volume issued in 2020 performed similarly. In 2022, the group released “Herederos” while performing a wildly successful North American tour.
The Overture Center is encouraging everyone to join in this celebration by offering tickets as “Pay What You Wish” for this performance (minimum $5 each for tickets valued at $25-45). Tickets are available here.
