Latin GRAMMY nominee Mariachi Herencia de México premiered “Escándalo” today, the band’s new single and music video.


“Escándalo” is the third single from Herederos (The Heirs), the band’s highly acclaimed fifth studio album, released on September 30, 2022, as the group was performing a wildly successful North American tour.

“’Escándalo’ is a tribute to the bolero, a song about love, and an homage to Latin music,” says Marco Villela, the 19-year-old singer and trumpet player in the young group that is determined to carry on a tradition that is almost 130 years old.

The band filmed the video earlier this Fall in New York City’s Lower East Side after a tour stop in Manhattan’s The Public Theater.

“We decided to incorporate other Latin sounds on this song. We were inspired by FANIA and the New York Latin sounds of the 70s,” says Villela. “Shooting the video in the birthplace of salsa music was very special.”

Simultaneously honoring the past, celebrating the present, and creating the future of Regional Mexican music, Mariachi Herencia de México is paving the way for a new generation of mariachi performers. The single and music video was released on November 18, 2022, across all digital platforms.

About Mariachi Herencia de México
The historic tradition of mariachi music has its roots of origin in cities such as Guadalajara and Mexico City. As the ever-evolving genre’s influence spread, it reached Chicago and birthed the Mariachi Herencia de México. The energetic, virtuosic Latin GRAMMY-nominated group has issued chart-topping albums and performed across the North American continent. Nuestra Herencia, their 2017 debut album, topped the Latin streaming charts. 2018’s Herencia de la Tierra Mía was produced by celebrated industry veteran Javier Limón and charted atop all major streaming services. 2019’s Esencia topped industry charts, while a second volume, issued in 2020 performed similarly. In 2022, Herederos appeared as the group was performing a wildly successful North American tour.
