Whether you’re festejando with family and friends at a house party, or enjoying an intimate dinner with your loved ones, we’ve got the perfect selections to set the ambiente, no matter what your mood is this 16 de septiembre!
From the classic rancheras of Mexico’s most revered composer, José Alfredo Jiménez, to the unparalleled bravado of Antonio Aguilar and Vicente ‘Chente’ Fernández, as well as the refined power of Lola Beltrán and Lucha Villa, you’ll be serenaded al estilo mariachi.

Or do you prefer el tamborazo? You’ll hear legendary bandas like Banda El Recodo, Banda El Limón, and Banda Machos. In a tropical mood? Fito Olivares, Rigo Tovar and Celso Piña will have you dancing cumbias hasta el amanecer!
