Celebrate the culture and traditions of Mexíco with us!

Leon Picazo starts us out with lively songs from his Mariachi band, which then provides the music for colorful swirling and stamping Folklorico dancers, and Ana Hurtado-Aldana describes the importance of Folklorico dance as part of her heritage. Aritist Francisco Franco tells us how he was drawn into creating his own variations on traditional Chicano art. Luis Hernandez, the son of Los Tigres del Norte's Luis Hernandez, presents his own Sureño music, and explains how it is related to the Norteño music of Los Tigres. The musicians of Suenatron present their own fusion of Norteño music with rock elements, as homage to the two worlds - dos mundos - they inhabit as Mexican-Americans. And finally, Mauricio Mejia describes his entrepreneurial journey and how it contributes to keeping vibrant Mexican heritage alive.
