Mariachi Mystery Tour founder and musical director Lorenzo Martinez is an accomplished composer, arranger, Mariachi and traditional New Mexican folk musician. He is also a dye-in-the-wool fan of four lads from Liverpool who made an unprecedented impact on not only Anglo music and culture, but whose inﬂuence was – and is still – felt in every corner of the globe. In 2009, Lorenzo had a wild (far out?) idea. What if he re-imagined the music of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr through the lenses of Mariachi? After arranging the material – and his selection of songs and styles is as wide ranging as the catalogue from which it comes – he recruited his brother Roberto Martinez, Jr. and some of the ﬁnest young Mariachis from his native New Mexico (including his son Larry and niece Sheila) to record what would become Mariachi Mystery Tour, a tour-de-force artistic and cultural collision that ﬂows together seamlessly while remaining true to both sides music and unique stylistic contributions.
The CD and their live show – a visual as well as aural adventure – takes a trip up the Mersey and down the Thames, all the while staying close to the banks of the Rio Grande.
