About the Show

Banda El Recodo and Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlán, two of the most legendary bands in the history of Mexican music, which through their incomparable careers have represented Mexico worldwide, will join forces for a historic tour that celebrates their unquestionable cultural legacy.

The extensive tour titled “200 Años”, takes its name from the time that together the two groups have remained relevant, present, and successful. Banda El Recodo recently celebrated its 80th anniversary, while the famed and mythical Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlán was founded 120 years ago.

“We decided to bring together Banda El Recodo and Mariachi Vargas for a tour in which both groups will perform their greatest hits together on the same stage. This is completely different to what’s being done currently in the music industry. Often times, these types of projects are difficult to solidify, fortunately in this case we were able to make it happen and I think the results are going to be very positive. This show will make history.” – Iván Fernández, Viva Tu Música

Through this historic tour, ”La Madre de Todas las Bandas” (The Mother of all Bands), as El Recodo is colloquially known, and “El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo” (The Best Mariachi in the World), which is what the Mariachi Vargas is considered, will bring together multiple generations of music fans, who will be able to enjoy the best of these two musical genres. These ensembles have left their imprint in the history of music in Mexico and through their songs have transcended borders and remained relevant over the years.



Banda El Recodo y Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlán, dos de las agrupaciones más legendarias en la historia de la música mexicana, quienes a través de sus inigualables trayectorias han enaltecido el nombre de México a nivel mundial, unirán fuerzas para una gira histórica celebrando su incuestionable legado cultural.

La extensa gira titulada “200 Años Tour”, toma su nombre del tiempo que en conjunto las dos agrupaciones han estado vigentes en el gusto del público. Banda El Recodo recientemente celebró su 80 aniversario, mientras que el célebre y mítico Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlán fue fundado hace 120 años.

“Decidimos juntar a Banda El Recodo y El Mariachi Vargas para una gira en la cual ambas agrupaciones interpretarán sus mejores temas juntos en un solo escenario. Es algo completamente diferente a lo que se ha venido haciendo en el ámbito musical recientemente. Muchas veces estos proyectos son difíciles de concretar, afortunadamente en este caso se ha logrado realizar y pienso que los resultados van a ser muy positivos. Este será un show que va a hacer historia.” – Iván Fernández, Viva Tu Música

En este histórico recorrido, “La Madre de Todas las Bandas” y “El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo”, reunirán generaciones enteras, quienes podrán disfrutar de lo mejor de estos dos géneros musicales, que representan y han marcado pauta en la historia de la música en México y que a través de sus canciones han trascendido fronteras y se han mantenido vigentes a través de los años.
