MARIACHI SINGER VERONICA ROBLES

Widely recognized as the most authentic representative of Mexican music and culture in New England, Veronica Robles has Mexican music in her blood. She first learned to sing boleros and rancheras from her grandmother as she prepared traditional dishes in the family kitchen. It was in Mexico City’s Plaza Garibaldi, the cradle of mariachi music, where Veronica was introduced to the mariachi group led by El Chiquis.  She began working with his group at age 15, learning hundreds of songs and musical styles from these elder musicians. In 1992, Robles left her home country for New York City to pursue her life as a professional mariachi musician.

Robles has made Massachusetts home since 2000, where she specializes in performing for young audiences through school assemblies, residencies and dance workshops. She was named an Artist Fellowship Finalist by the Massachusetts Cultural Council in 2012.

TEQUILA TASTING BY SERGIO RAMOS

From Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, currently living in the State of Maine, Mr. Ramos has over 25 years in the restaurant industry locally and internationally. He recently completed the first phase of a Tequila expert class “T” certification by The Tequila Regulatory Council of Mexico and is endorsed by the Association of Tequila from Mexico.  After finishing a technical career, Sergio immigrated to the United States and worked for Applebee’s,  Ruby Tuesday and Rare Hospitality.

On November 20th, Mexican celebrate the anniversary of  “La Revolucion Mexicana:
La Revolucion Mexicana was an armed conflict often categorized as the most important sociopolitical event in Mexico and one of the greatest upheavals of the 20th century, which saw important experimentation and reformation in social organization. After prolonged struggles, its representatives produced the Mexican Constitution of 1917 during Venustiano Carranza’s term.
The revolution led to the creation of the Partido Nacional Revolucionario (“National Revolutionary Party”) in 1929; it was renamed the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (Institutional Revolutionary Party) (PRI) in 1946. Under a variety of leaders, the PRI monopolized power until the general election of 2000.
The 20th of November is celebrated in Mexico as the beginning of the Mexican Revolution that ran from 1910 to 1920 and was called for by defeated presidential candidate and reform writer Francisco Ignacio Madero.
