The thirteen-member ensemble is among the finest to be found both in Mexico and the United States, combining refined vocal power and superb musicianship.  Mr. Hernàndez' compositions are bright, splashy celebrations that reflect his diverse musical inspirations, ranging from Leonard Bernstein to Augustine Lara; Glenn Miller to José Alfredo Jimenez.  No one else in the mariachi music scene navigates traditional Mexican folk, classical, and pop music with such grace.  The versatility of Sol de Mexico has led to fabulous and unexpected collaborations, including work with the Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, Green Day, and Willie Nelson.  Within the world of Latin music, Sol de Mexico has played alongside stars such as Vicente Fernandez, Selena, Jose Feliciano, and a record-breaking concert tour with the one and only Luis Miguel.
