Formed in the DFW in late 2019, El Chanclazo is a musical collective that is made up of various musicians of Latin America that are specialized in performing a variety of Latin American musical genres. Co-lead by Mariana Grahl (vocals) and Pepe Valdez (guitar and musical director), El Chanclazo is committed to rescuing a specific repertoire that they consider is important to perform and that they enjoy playing. Working their way through boleros, valses, rancheras, sones, rumbas, huapangos, and chacareras, El Chanclazo tries to bring to its audience the experience of a night of what they call “Bohemia”. Bringing the best of each one’s background, Mariana and Pepe started working on developing a repertoire that is varied and significant to each one and comprised of music that they love and care for. With the collective experience of 4 of Dallas’ most accomplished Latin Musicians and the deep passion and love for the music that they play, watching El Chanclazo is a great way to experience the vibrant culture of Latin America. If you are new to this music, an occasional listener or even a native Latino/a, you will for sure love the experience of listening and sharing an amazing time with El Chanclazo.
