Mariachi Los Camperos
The group that brought mariachi music from the cantinas to the stagePrint This
IU Auditorium is proud to present Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Los Camperos as part of the Arts and Humanities Council’s Spring 2019 Mexico Remixed festival. This preeminent mariachi group was founded in 1961 by the late Natividad “Nati” Cano, who played an integral role in bringing mariachi performance out of the traditional venue, the cantinas, and into the concert hall.
In 2014, Jesús "Chuy" Guzmán succeeded Nati Cano as music director of Los Camperos and the group continues to thrive. With nine albums released since their inception and multiple Grammy Award wins and nominations, this performance will showcase to the Bloomington community the vibrancy and intensity that distinguishes this group as one of the finest mariachi bands in the world.
