Spreading the Gospel…mariachi style!
Mariachi music is something that reaches into the heart of the Hispanic population in a unique and powerful way. However, people of diverse cultures enjoy Mariachi San Pablo’s music. Their repertoire includes a variety of music including traditional hymns and contemporary Christian songs in both English and Spanish. They also play a variety of music from the popular mariachi tradition. While at home on the US/Mexico Border, Mariachi San Pablo works to reach their community through music that both inspires and touches the lives of those who hear it. Since its beginning in 2001, the group has also traveled to 17 different U.S. States as well as into Mexico (81 cities in all), performing for a variety of Lutheran conventions, conferences, and church events, celebrating with and assisting others in reaching the Hispanic populations in their communities.
