Mexican harpist at Fun Haus Factory

Victor Valdes and his mariachi band

One of Australia’s leading world music artists is coming to the Central Coast for one night only on Friday, February 2.

Victor Valdes’ powerful, compelling voice, magical harp and passion for storytelling will take you on a unique sonorous journey through the many emotions of the Latin American musical landscape as he performs with his mariachi band at Gosford’s Fun Haus Factory.

The virtuoso Mexican musician, singer and dancer has redefined the harp as a solo and lead instrument and is a walking encyclopedia of Latin music past and present in a multitude of musical contexts.

He has played with everyone from Angus and Julia Stone and Los Lobos to Jimmy Barnes and The Wiggles and was named Director’s Choice at Bluesfest.

Steeped in the folkloric traditions of his native Mexico as a dancer as well as a musician, Valdes began his career as Mexico’s national folkloric dance champion three years in succession, and since relocating to Australia has taught Latin dance, including at the Sydney Dance Company.

He has been recognised as a Distinguished Mexican by the government of Mexico and by the Institute of Mexicans Abroad.

Valdes brings with him all of the exciting and emotive colours of Mexico’s musical landscape with authentic and masterful interpretations of traditional Mexican and Latin music.

The event is all ages with children under 15 admitted free (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult).

Doors open at 5pm with $10 cocktail happy hour and Colombian street food empanadas for supper with the show kicking off at 7.30pm.
