Having celebrated their 45th anniversary season in 2011, Mexico’s “Los Folkloristas” continue their mission set in 1966 “to preserve and record the traditional music of Mexico and Latin America.” Carrying more than 100 instruments in their collection, and performing music from up to 15 different countries and pre-Columbian Mexico, a performance with this seven-member ensemble is like taking a musical journey through Latin America. As ambassadors of traditional Latin folk music, “Los Folkloristas” successes include the release of more than 30 albums world-wide, acclaim from the National Association of Independent Record Distributors (NAIRD) and contributions to musical scores for the award-winning film El Norte and more recent release Mi Familia (My Family).

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 am-1 pm. If tickets remain at 1 pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.

Presented by Miller Outdoor Theatre in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico in Houston
