ent_violin 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Los Gu'achis in Concert Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Free concert for all ages. Drop-in, no tickets required. 

Los Gu’achis will perform a family concert of their lively instrumental music of the Southwest, Early California, Mexico and other places on  Saturday, March 29 at 2 p.m..

The Petaluma-based quartet has played to standing-room-only audiences at branch libraries in Sonoma and Napa counties, as well as restaurants, art galleries, supermarkets, festivals and store openings.

A story about Los Gu’achis in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat in June 2013 highlighted their volunteer work at local senior centers, where they play their music to the delight of elders in the programs.  “My seniors just love them,” said Pat Vachini, who runs the senior day program. “They are magic. You look around the room and every single one of them is tapping their feet.” Craig Mason, who runs the senior lunch program, said, “It’s not every day you have a group of musicians who can mo­tivate seniors in their 80s and 90s to get up and dance. They are an enlivening group.”

The one-hour presentation includes commentary about the origins of the music on the Papago Indian Reservation in southern Arizona. Members of the tribe, now known as the Tohono O'odham ("The Desert People"), developed a unique musical sound utilizing violins, guitar, and drums playing polkas, two-steps and mazurkas. They learned this music from many influences beginning in 1539 from Spanish missionaries.

Los Gu’achis also play music of the Early Californians (Los Californios), of Mexico, of New Mexico and Swedish tunes, all of which lend themselves to the Gu’achi style.

“Much of this music from the American Southwest is not widely known, but it has its roots in Native American, Mexican and European music," she said. "It is an exciting sound that people seem to want to dance to.”

Members of Los Gu’achis are Barbara Arhon (violin), Steve Della Maggiora (accordion and lead guitar), Chris Samson (rhythm guitar) and Tracy Grisman (bass). Visit www.losguachis.com for more information about the group.
