The 73rd annual Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival in Indio ends Sunday with a live mariachi performance from a Grammy-nominated troupe.
Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez has been playing, and breaking countless barriers, since their debut in 1981, the festival website said.
The group earned a Grammy nomination in the Best Mexican/Mexican American album in 2006, and has played all around world, including China and North Korea. “Mariachi Sol de Mexico embraces the romanticism of Mexico’s land, people, and beauty, sharing the culture wherever they go.”
The Mariachi band will play in the Fantasy Springs Concert Pavilion beginning at 3:30 p.m.
