VIDEO: EPCOT’s Mariachi Cobre Performs ‘Remember Me’ from Disney and Pixar’s “Coco”
As part of Disney’s #VoicesFromHome project, which enlists popular musicians within the Disney family to perform some of the company’s greatest hits, today we head south of the border with Mariachi Cobre for a spirited performance of “Remember Me” from Disney and Pixar’s Coco.
Well-known across the world for their vibrant and warm performances at the Mexico pavilion, this band has been performing for millions of guests each year at EPCOT since 1982.
According to AllMusic.com, the band was originally based in Tucson, Arizona, and was started by guitarron and guitar player Randy Carrillo, a veteran of the first mariachi group in the U.S., Mariachi Juvenil Los Chanquitos Feos De Tucson.
“In addition to Carrillo, the original band included his brother, Steve Carillo, on trumpet, guitarron, vihuela and guitar, Mack Ruiz on violin, and Frank Grijalva as the arranger. As of June 2000, Mariachi Cobre has expanded to also include Chris Figueroa (violin), Hector Gama (violin), Miguel Molina (trumpet), Israel Molina (violin), Robert Martinez (vihuela), Antonio Ruiz (violin and viola), Javier Trujillo (guitarra de Golpe), and Mario Trujillo (violin).”
