About Jarabe Mexicano: Jarabe Mexicano hit the Latin music scene in 2015, electrifying audiences throughout the U.S. and Mexico. Performing on traditional mariachi instruments accompanied by lively percussion, Jarabe’s arrangements feature stunning harmonized vocals in Spanish and English. Along with traditional boleros, huapangos, sones, and rancheras, audiences thrill to their upbeat cumbias, revamped rock & roll hits, and reggae classics. The irresistible synergy between lead vocalist Gustavo Alcoser, musical director Mario Eguia on requinto, Kevin Lomes on vihuela, Chris Behrens on guitarrón, and Alejandro Tapia on percussion and guitar leaves audiences chanting for encores!
With extensive backgrounds in music education, members of Jarabe have established strong ties to local community organizations including the City Heights Music School, the Road Scholar Senior Education program, and other arts programs throughout San Diego.
