Fiesta Mexicana

Episode 1 of 1

Fiesta Mexicana is a performance special - hosted by Hispanic singing icon Vikki Carr - that celebrates the music and dance of the different regions of Mexico. This performance spectacular is anchored by a gala concert at the historic Teatro Juarez in the ancient mining city of Guanajuato. In addition to the gala, Fiesta Mexicana showcases Mariachi and Jarocho (the music of the Vera Cruz region) performances at locations around the city and state of Guanajuato. Joining Vikki Carr at the gala and on location are Mexican singing legends Eugenia Leon and Alberto Angel "El Cuervo," Vera Cruz jarocho group Tlen Huicani and the world-famous Los Angeles-based mariachi group Los Camperos de Nati Cano. Joining all these artists on stage at the Teatro Juarez in Guanajuato is the Orquesta Sinfonica of the University of Guanajuato, one of Mexico's leading regional orchestras, and the full company of the Ballet Folklorico of the University of Guanajuato, fresh from their triumphant 2007 European tour. Mexican music is positive, energetic, emotional, and full of stories and history. Each of the four acts of Fiesta Mexicana weaves location and gala performance into an overall theme.
