Mariachi Ghost

The Mariachi Ghost honor Mexican Independence day as well as the traditional music that originally inspired the band this September 13th at the West End Cultural Centre. There’ll be a full mariachi brass section, a piñata competition, a set of traditional Mariachi music and the debut of a new original Mariachi Ghost track!

“We have never celebrated Mexican independence day Like this.” Says Mariachi Ghost bandleader, Jorge Requena. “It is usually a Family day in México where you eat traditional food, sing some songs and do the traditional Mexican independence scream - VIVA MEXICO!!!”

The Mariachi Ghost have a night of mariachi music planned for September 13th which will include one set of traditional Mexican tunes backed by a full brass section, a piñata contest during the mid-concert break, closing with a final set of original Mariachi Ghost music including the debut of one brand new track.

“We felt like we needed to share a bit of Mexican culture so we can honor the music that inspired the band. We also wanted to share a bit about the festivity, break some piñatas and enjoy a bit of Mexican food, like we do in México” explains Jorge.

The piñata competition will feature designs submitted by different artists in the city. Anyone who is interested in submitting a design may do so. The piñatas will be showcased in the WECC lobby at the show. The best design will receive a $100 award as well as a batch of Mexican candy and a Mariachi Ghost pack. The piñata will then be broken at the celebration.
