Mariachi Sol de mi Tierra
Mariachi Sol De Mi Tierra was formed with the idea to show people something fresh and unique from the already existing musical groups in Denver, CO. On Aug 6, 1999, four young music enthusiasts, Oscar Vaca, Jesus Ramirez, Raul Romero, and Vicente Romero, gave complete trust and hope to the leader of the group, Juventino Romero. With a lot of determination, practice and hard work, they decided to plan an exciting musical adventure. Throughout the years, more musicians joined, which lead to the eight musicians who are a part of the group today.
Mariachi Sol De Mi Tierra enjoys a prestige that they have gained over the years. In the past 12 years, they have been a part of various events associated with the National Western Stock Show. For the past 9 years, they have shared the stage with the Colorado Symphony in the festivities for Cinco de Mayo at Boettcher Concert Hall. The group has also performed with some great Mexican singers in Denver. With a firm belief to keep demonstrating a beautiful part of the Mexican culture, Mariachi Sol De Mi Tierra is now more and better than ever, offering to their audience dedication, love, and passion for their music.
