Swing to the rousing sounds of Mariachi Cobre at the festive Plaza de los Amigos market inside the Mexico Pavilion or in front of the handsome Mayan exterior, and bask in the traditional musical musings of Jalisco, Mexico.
Mariachi Cobre includes 3 guitarists, 2 trumpet players and 7 violinists who combine to deliver the warm, rich rhythms of Mexican folkloric music that will sweep your entire family into a spirit of celebration.
Originally formed in 1971, the line-up has changed over the years. But original founders Randy Carillo and his brother Stephen have been performing at the Mexico Pavilion since the opening of Epcot. And they've shared the stage with such luminaries as Linda Ronstadt, Julio Iglesias and Carlos Santana.
There is plenty of room for guests to get a good view of Mariachi Cobre, so there’s no need to arrive at the Mexico Pavilion early to see the band perform. If you’re a fan of Mariachi, go ahead and stay for the entire set. If you just want a taste of the music, catch it as you’re walking by or before you step inside the pavilion to go on Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros.
Never fail, before the set is over, Lily is playing the air-violin! Mariachi Cobre is a great band and has been around since Epcot opened. For that reason alone, we stop by the Mexico Pavilion for one of their performances on every trip.
Mariachi Cobre is a traditional 12-piece Mexican Mariachi band that performs at scheduled times throughout the day. The band stands on the World Showcase Lagoon-side of the walkway in front of the Mexico Pavilion in World Showcase. Each set lasts about 20 minutes.
