¡Viva La Tradición! is the brianchild of Executive Director, Susie Garcia. With a long career as a musician and a Mariachi herself, Garcia hopes that high-quality productions like ¡Viva La Tradición! and the inimitable talents of its performers will enhance appreciation for traditional music and build bridges between communities. Garcia believes music with cross-cultural influences provides people from all walks of life with the same joyful experience, which in turn, nurtures our collective identity. The live music series seeks to educate audiences through performances of traditional Mexican music and engage them in culturallyrelevant conversations about Latino culture in Los Angeles and beyond.
