Viva Mexico in Los Cabos!

In Mexico, the date of September 16 is best known as El Grito de Dolores (“The Cry of Dolores”) or an event  best recognized as the “Cry for Independence”). The now famous words uttered from the small town of Dolores, near Guanajuato on September 16, 1810,  marks the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence and is the most important national holiday observed in Mexico. The “Grito” was the proclamation of the Mexican War of Independence by Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Roman Catholic priest.

Hidalgo and several working class peasants  were involved in a planned revolt against the Spanish colonial government, when several protesting organizers were betrayed. Fearing his arrest, Hidalgo commanded his brother Mauricio, as well as Ignacio Allende and Mariano Abasolo to go with a number of other armed men to make the sheriff release the pro-independence inmates on the night of  September 15. They managed to set eighty of them free. Around 6:00 am September 16, 1810, Hidalgo ordered the church bells to be rung and gathered his congregation. Flanked by Allende and Juan Aldama, he addressed the people in front of his church, encouraging them to revolt.

The Battle of Guanajuato, was  the first major engagement of the insurgency that occurred four days later. Mexico’s independence would not be effectively declared from Spain in the Declaration of Independence by the Mexican Empire until September 27, 1821, after a decade of war.

Each year on the night of September 15 at around eleven in the evening, the President of Mexico rings the bell of the National Palace in Mexico City. After the ringing of the bell, he repeats a cry of patriotism (a Grito Mexicano) based upon the “Grito de Dolores”, with the names of the important heroes of the Mexican War of Independence and ending with the threefold shout of ¡Viva México! from the balcony of the palace to the assembled crowd in the Plaza de la Constitución, (or Zócalo), one of the largest public plazas in the world. A similar celebration occurs in cities and towns all over Mexico, and this area is no different as Cabo San Lucas holds their annual celebration at the Municipal Sports Complex on the outskirts town known as Delegacion, while in San Jose del Cabo, the party is held at the plaza in front of the Catholic Church of the city’s central art district.

A festive day marked by parades, patriotic programs, drum and bugle and youth marching band competitions as well as the long-standing Mexican tradition of beer and alcohol consumption. And like  similar federal holidays in the U.S. when Mexicans work on September 16 they receive double their hourly wage and sometimes triple their pay depending on what day the historic Mexican Independence celebration falls. Flags are for sale in abundance beginning in August and the national pride amongst its citizens reach an all time fervor and the words “Viva Mexico” take on an added sense of happiness and camaraderie.

Music Festival 2019 Press Conference – Squid Roe.

Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México.

The Saturday, June 22, 2019, San Jose del Cabo 11th Annual Festival of Music, press release at Squid Roe, announced that the gowing music party is more popular than the one celebrated the same date as the festivities in Guadalajara. Musician’s and groups participating in this year’s edition include bands and performers from Mexico City, and Colombia.

When the SJDC event started in 2009, there were 300 people listening to 14 bands. By 2012, those numbers jumped to an attendance of 7,000 locals and a then-record 60 bands in 2012. In 2016, the attending crowd rose to 10,000 peope and the number of bands and musicians reached an all-time high, 160 live bands. The SJDC Music Festival is by far the summer’s most popular event. A remarkable night of music that begins at 5:00 PM and ends at 1:00 AM.

The world-wide global celebration of music was an idea that began a half decade as a single celebration of music. A day in which musicians perform passionately at the various streets that wind through their respective communities. A day to share their vocal, guitar, drum, flute, saxophone, keyboard and bass playing talents.

The event’s organizing committee have seen this unique and special event, grow every year since it first began. It is justifiably considered the largest live band celebration of music in the world. The international music festival’s roots date back to the 1982 gala in France.

The Music Festival that begins at 5:00 pm is a free event; celebrating music in all its different styles. It is a memorable event that happens simultaneously worldwide in 120 countries that include Paris Italy, Rio de Janiero Brazil, Dublin Ireland, Madrid Spain, Quebec Canada, New York New York, Denver Colorado, South Africa, Australia, Paraguay, and India. In Mexico, the event is held in the national cities of San Luis, Potosi; Mexico City, Guadalajara, and San Jose del Cabo.

June 21st was chosen as the festival’s event date because it is the summer solstice day in the northern hemisphere. A date joined by 120 countries sharing in the appreciation and celebration of music and it’s daily impact in the livelihood of everyone inhabiting this rich and diverse planet. There will be music from different genres, in both Spanish and English languages, and there will be musicians of every level; amateur, beginner, and professional.

Everything from Mariachi, banda, salsa, jazz, funk, and good old rock and roll. Audiences at this festival have walked away completely happy and satisfied during the past three years.
