MPAC Summer Concert Series presents Cielito Lindo

From Sunday, July 30, 2017 12:00 pm until 1:15 pm

The McKinley Park Advisory Council and the McKinley Park Farmers Market present a music performance by Cielito Lindo from noon to 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, July 30, 2017, at the William McKinley Memorial in McKinley Park, 3705 S. Archer Ave., Chicago.

Cielito Lindo is a modern Latino musical family formed by the Lucero 9. The band features dad, Juan, on guitar and vocals, sons Diego 15 (guitarron, ukelele, vocals), Miguel 14 (trumpet, vocals), Antonio 12 (vihuela, vocals), Carlos 11 (guitar, vocals) and daughter Lilia 9 (maracas, vocals), with occasional guest performances by daughter Maya (6), son Mateo (4) and mom Susy. 

The band's repertoire reflects cultural influences inspired by mariachi and Latino heritage, with music styles like sones, huapangos and rancheras from Mexico; canciones Cubanas; and Puerto Rican boleros. They also include family favorites like “No Tortillas” by Lalo Guerrero and songs in English. Called the “Chicago Von-Trapp Family” by Chicago Tonight, their powerhouse vocals and smooth harmonies surprise, delight and knock the socks off audiences of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
