Mariachi Rayos del Sol is a group formed from the Del Rio youth. each of the members is experienced in the culture and style of mariachi, so they will be the life of the party.
the group first made an impression at the 2014 Del Rio annual mariachi concert, where the schools showcase their mariachis. at that time most of the Rayos members where in the Del Rio Middle School Mariachi de la Juventud. after the performance the students received many compliments, and even an encore from the crowd. from then they were hired through the school to do gigs such as thanksgiving dinners and anniversaries. after going to competition and winning second place, the students' director, Mr. Brijalba noted that the kids had a lot of potential.
If you have been familiar with the Del Rio community you might remember a mariachi that was formed about 8 years ago. Mariachi La Differencia was the first group Brijalda decided to form and the group successfully went on for about 6 years, following the students to graduation. Now the director has set the same goal for success for these students.
Mariachi Rayos del Sol consists of about 16 high school students who each have a wonderful talent whether it be playing the violin, trumpet, armonia or singing. the group has played at weddings, anniversaries and serenatas in just the first summer. Mariachi Rayos del Sol is a true definition of Hispanic culture and always find a way to show their mariachi pride.
