For almost 50 years, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s (UTRGV) award-winning Mariachi Aztlán and Ballet Folklorico UTRGV continue breaking barriers and setting a standard of excellence for collegiate ensembles across the nation. Mariachi Aztlán are recurring winners at the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza, one of the nation’s largest, longest-running, and most prestigious mariachi music festivals in the world. Joining Mariachi Aztlán this year is the lovely 16-year old Nathania Flores, who captivated the hearts and ears of members of Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán with her exceptional interpretation of “Mi Tierra Mexicana,” during the 24th Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza National Vocal Competition in San Antonio. Members of Vargas selected the Edcouch-Elsa, Texas native from hundreds of entries and more than 40 vocal finalists competing for the title.
