Location: Water Street Plaza
Description: We are celebrating with special live performances by Ellas and the Villalobos Brothers at the Water Street Amphitheater. On the plaza, enjoy Mexican cuisine and drinks from your local food truck favorites.
This triple threat from Los Angeles California is ready to dazzle audiences around the world with their unique blend of mariachi and modern music. With simply a guitar, guitarron, violin and their angelic harmonies, they have reached #7 on the itunes Latin charts for their debut album “Ellas #primerafila.” Additionally, Suemy, Nelly and Melinda have earned grammy nominations and a grammy award in their individual musical careers. They have performed at iconic venues such as the Hollywood Bowl, the Dolby Theater, and the “nest” for the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The mixture of their own musical upbringing along with some of their favorite musical genres of gypsy jazz, pop and country will keep audiences all around wanting more.
Acclaimed as one of today’s leading Contemporary Mexican groups, the original compositions and arrangements of The Villalobos Brothers masterfully fuse and celebrate the richness of Mexican folk music with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music.
The ensemble’s virtuosic performances have delighted audiences throughout Latin America, India, Russia, Canada and in more than 30 states across the US. They have performed in historic venues and events including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Latin Grammy Awards, Davies Symphony Hall, Montreal Jazz Festival, the Ford Theatre in Hollywood, the 60th Anniversary of the United Nations, the New Victory Theatre on Broadway, San Jose Jazz Fest, Celebrate Brooklyn, the 66th FIFA Congress in Mexico City, the Blue Note Jazz Festival and the Apollo Theatre.
In 2018, they joined forces with Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra for the “Fandango at the Wall” project. This ambitious undertaking, produced by Kabir Sehgal, united legendary international musicians for a live concert at the Tijuana-San Diego border wall which resulted in a live album and documentary film to be released in 2019.
The Villalobos Brothers recently premiered their Symphonic Project performing two sold-out, back-to-back concerts with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and the Walla Walla Symphony.
The ensemble has collaborated with legendary musicians including Grammy winners Bruce Springsteen, Dolly Parton, Antonio Sánchez, Regina Carter, Eduardo Magallanes, Dan Zanes, Sierra Hull, and Ana Tijoux.
