Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque attracts young, old to learn mariachi music

It’s a musical experience like no other. Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque works to promote New Mexico’s vibrant, artistic and cultural soul.

The event sets itself a part from others by bringing in top talent instructors called maestros who are often icons in the music industry. This gives people an unheard of instructional session between high profile musicians and every day music and dancer enthusiast.

Mariachi Spectacular has been an organization providing music conferences and concerts in our community for 29 years. They attract young and old students from around the country to learn mariachi music and ballet folklorico.

Albuquerque has been for some time the premier destination for mariachi groups from around the country to come here each year to both learn from the masters and compete with groups never encountered. Many elements make up their conference beyond the lessons in music and dance. They also have a mariachi hall of fame, showcase competition for both music and dance, a mariachi mass, an event entitled La Pasion de Mariachi which takes an in-depth look into the music in terms of instrumentation, music styles, traditional group composition as well as the history of mariachi.

Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque is July 10 through July 13.
