Think Mexican Music Is All Mariachi? This Duo Will Prove Just How Wrong You Are

When you think of Mexican music, you might not think of violin and jazz. But that is exactly what Villalobos Brothers deliver with their unique mix of older and more contemporary forms of Mexican music. Sound intriguing? If so, check them out when they perform live at the Peace Center on Tuesday, April 23rd!

Born and raised in Veracruz, Mexico, the Villalobos Brothers use their violins and voices to blend Mexican folk music with elements of classical, jazz, and rock. Their performances are notable for their own unique style of playing called “Fast-Chatting Violin,” as well as their powerful message of love, brotherhood, and social justice.

In addition to their virtuosic playing, the brothers — Ernest, Alberto, and Luis – also compose their own original music featuring closely mingled harmonies and intricate patterns. Through multidisciplinary acts that include masks, poems, and theatrical sketches interwoven with powerful lyrics and high-energy compositions, the Villalobos Brothers use their unique style to redefine contemporary Mexican music.

Masterfully blending the indigenous rhythms and melodies of their native Veracruz, Mexico, with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music, the three Villalobos Brothers deliver an intoxicating brew of musical brilliance, cadence and virtuosity that awakens the senses as it redefines the notions behind Latin music.
