Boleros De Navidad is a new, bilingual, and festive Latin holiday celebration that will have you singing along to Christmas classics and enjoying popular Bolero standards on Saturday, December 16 at 7:30 in the Scherr Forum.
The genre of Boleros first originated in Cuba and made its way to Mexico by the 1940s. This style of music is usually performed by a three-piece band. Tres Souls, today’s newest generation of Bolero artists, is comprised of members Roberto Carlos, Jesús Martínez and Rocio Mendoza, and represents a revival of “Trio Romántico” music. They relive the vintage Bolero sounds and songs of the 1940s -1960s that was popularized during the ‘Golden Era of Mexican Cinema’.
Each member of the trio is an accomplished musician, and each inherited the knowledge and importance of heritage music through their family and generations before them. In their own way Tres Souls are following in the footsteps of other “Trio Romanticos”, like Eydie Gorme Y Los Panchos, Los Tres Reyes and Los Tres Ases, while interspersing musical influences that can be heard echoing throughout the diaspora of Los Angeles. Tres Souls released their first album in 2019 titled, “Boleros Made In LA.” Where they celebrate their roots while branching out into uncharted territory.
Tres Souls creates a festive and nostalgic celebration through its own unique interpretation. The group’s timeless sound is interspersed with bilingual renditions that bridges the border between the music’s past and present. Tres Souls perform around the greater Los Angeles area, including past performances at The Broad Stage’s original cultural educational musical Musical Explorers, AirBnB Open Spotlight, MOLAA, Metro Arts Presents at Union Station, Plaza De Cultura Y Artes, Rosenthal Theater, Casa 0101, KPFK, KXLU and recently at the Walt Disney Studios for the premier of Coco the movie.
