Mariachi Nueva Generacion

Mariachi Nueva Generacion 2015-2016

Mariachi Nueva Generación (MNG) became a class at Texas State University in the fall of 1997. MNG is dedicated to the study and performance of all genres associated with mariachi, including, among others, the son, the huapango, the bolero, and the polka.

Since its creation, Texas State Mariachi Nueva Generación has established itself as one of the leading university mariachis in Texas. The group maintains a  busy schedule of performance both on and off campus and in all surrounding cities. MNG also engages students from all over Texas through workshops and clinics.

In spite of its busy performance and teaching schedule, the group is committed to hosting the annual Feria del Mariachi competition and workshop held in the late Spring of each year. For more information, please visit
