Mariachi Mystery Tour
"Mariachi Mystery Tour doesn't just make classic songs fresh, the group makes them new. ...makes you wonder what would have happened if John, Paul, George and Ringo had spent some time with Pedro Infante." - Dan May?eld, Albuquerque Journal 'The freshest new sound to hit my ears since I don't remember when. I have fallen in love with the Beatles again through the Mariachi Mystery Tour interpretation of these classic cuts. Thank you. Thank You. THANK YOU!' - Leigh Ann Hahn, Director of Programming, Grand Performances, Los Angeles ¡Si, Si, Si! Mariachi Mystery Tour founder and musical director Lorenzo Martinez is an accomplished composer, arranger, Mariachi and traditional New Mexican folk musician. He is also a tie-dye- in-the-wool fan of four lads from Liverpool who made an unprecedented impact on not only Anglo music and culture, but whose in?uence was - and is still - felt in every corner of the globe. In 2009, Lorenzo had a wild (far out?) idea. What if he re-imagined the music of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr through the lenses of Mariachi? After arranging the material - and his selection of songs and styles is as wide ranging as the catalogue from which it comes - he recruited his brother Roberto Martinez, Jr. and some of the ?nest young Mariachis from his native New Mexico to record what would become Mariachi Mystery Tour, a tour-de-force artistic and cultural collision that ?ows together seamlessly while remaining true to both sides music and unique stylistic contributions. The group has already appeared at many world-class stages including recently at ¡Globalquerque!, Grand Performances Los Angeles, Musical Instrument Museum (Phoenix), Santa Clarita (CA) Performing Arts Center. The CD and their live show - a visual as well as aural adventure - takes a trip up the Mersey and down the Thames, all the while staying close to the banks of the Rio Grande. !Rodemos¡ (Roll Up!). Mariachi Mystery Tour is coming to take you away!
