with Victor Valdes and the Real Mexico Mariachi band
Get ready for an authentic Mexican experience Saturday 24 January Long Weekend at The Gov with Victor Valdes and The Real Mexico Mariachi Band (Mexico/Australia).
A virtuoso Mexican harpist, Victor Valdes is a walking-talking encyclopaedia of Mexican and Latin music past and present and has redefined the harp as a solo and lead instrument in a multitude of musical contexts and keys. As a solo harpist, Victor has performed in 25 countries worldwide. For 10 years he was a member of Tlen Huicani, the best known and multi-award-winning Mexican folk group which toured the world, playing 20 performances at Sydney Opera House.
Victor has performed with everyone from Angus and Julia Stone, Los Lobos to Jimmy Barnes, and appeared on folk, world music, rock and blues festival stages Australia-wide. He has appeared at Bluesfest (where he was named Director’s Choice), Bellingen Global Carnival, National Folk Festival Canberra, Woodford Folk Festival, Womadelaide, Adelaide Cabaret Festival and on many other major stages.
This maestro of the Mexican Jarocho folk harp has not only played and taught music with the very best, but also Mexican and Latin dance. Victor was the national Folkloric Dance Champion in Mexico for three years in a row and taught Latin dance at the Sydney Dance Company for four years after re-locating to Australia.
Victor Valdes and His Real Mexico Mariachi Band will be bringing a genuine Mexican fiesta and the colourful traditions and vibrance of Mexico to The Gov Saturday 24 Jan!
Show starts at 9:00pm and will be followed by local Colombian band Soul Macumbia and Adelaide’s best Latino DJs.
