Musco Center Presents
Lupillo Rivera with Mariachi
Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 6:00pm
With his signature style and mastery of Mexican regional music, including mariachi, corridos, and banda, Lupillo Rivera will be joined by a mariachi band to cap off the year’s festivities. His latest record, El Malo (the bad one), plays on Rivera’s macho persona and famous family that have earned him a loyal fanbase and starring roles on television.
Lupillo Rivera has long been a fixture in the world of Mexican music and entertainment. Born in La Barca, Jalisco, Rivera grew up in Huntington Park, California. Billboard magazine said that Rivera “epitomizes a new breed of regional Mexican artist, one that grew up listening to rap and Mexican music but that plays extremely traditional music.”
His father, Pedro Rivera, ran a record label and studio, and early in his life, Lupillo filled in on vocals and scouted for talent at local venues. His sister, singer and actress Jenni Rivera, was a successful and deeply loved musician before her tragic death in a plane crash in 2012.
As a mainstay in the Regional Music scene, Rivera has released a steady stream of hit records, including 2009’s Tu Esclavo y Amo which won the Grammy Award for Best Banda Album.
