Mariachi Ghost w/ Fate Williams and Sebastian Barrera
The Mariachi Ghost, from Winnipeg, Canada, summon the ghosts of old Mexico through traditional Mexican song, haunting synths and explosive guitar lines, alongside rich harmonies, commanding lead vocals and spectral dance. Their show leaps from anguish and longing to a raging fury in a heartbeat. The band started as an art project among friends in 2009 and has since grown to an internationally acclaimed touring act. The Mariachi Ghost has played festival stages such as Interstellar Rodeo, the Pan-American Games and the Winnipeg Folk Fest mainstage. The band has performed at SXSW, Tallinn Music Week, Mundial Montreal and Breakout West. Their self-titled debut album won the “Best World Music Album” at the Western Canadian Music Awards and received international radio play. In 2015, they collaborated with legendary film director Guy Maddin to create a music video. 2018 saw the debut of ‘Rencor Vivo’, a Rock Opera based on the music from their forthcoming second album ‘Puro Dolor’ which takes inspiration from the seminal work of Mexican novel “Pedro Paramo”. Expect a new album, new visuals and a bigger version of their Rock Opera in 2019!
