Fiesta del Norte
Fiesta del Norte is CT's first Mariachi band serenading New England audiences for over 25 years. Dressed in traditional charro outfits, the exciting and beautiful sounds of Mexico are heard with many familiar sing-along and danceable rhythms. Dressed in traditional sombreros and "charro" outfits, our repertoire spans from the Mariachis of Jalisco to the Nortenas of Chihuahua, down to the Marimba music of Chiapas. All this played on authentic instruments such as guitar, vihuela, guitarron, violin, trumpet and with beautiful singing throughout. Song translations, storytelling and cultural insights are interwoven between musical numbers. A member of the CT Commission of Culture and Tourism since 1986, this Hartford based group has serenaded New England audiences at major festivals, First Nights, colleges, schools, libraries, town greens, senior centers and many other venues.
