Jarabe Mexicano, a five-piece group from San Diego and Tijuana, offers up just what their name promises, metaphorically that is. Their "Mexican syrup" refers to the mixture of genres that encompass both the music of Mexico and the high-energy music that Jarabe Mexicano performs. Infusing cumbia, rock and reggae sounds in with their renditions of rancheras, huapangos, sones, boleros and more, the group brings new perspectives to mariachi music. Their bi-cultural chops in California and Baja, California have even earned them an endorsement from the U.S. Consulate in Mexico.
You can catch Jarabe Mexicano live at Sea of Glass Center for the Arts (330 E. Seventh St.) on Thursday, July 28. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $4 to $18. You can order yours and find more information at theseaofglass.org. It is an all-ages concert.
