The amazing Mexican violin player David Mendoza is a San Miguel de Allende treasure, well-loved in town since 2015, when he started playing with guitar virtuoso Gil Gutierrez as well as the talented young masters of rumba, Media Luna.
David’s talent usually exceeds the expectations of people who listen to him for the first time. The emotion that he exudes when he plays each note makes people vibrate and makes them feel on another level, or in his own words, “Music is an eternal meditation … a profound healing in which dreams can be born that will create a better reality.”
He is the only musician in town that can play almost every genre, including classic music, tangos, South American folk music, flamenco, jazz, rock, new age, modern music, and more.
He understands music very well. Being a composer and multi-instrumentalist, he knows how to direct his musicians to make a very unique show for his crowd.
David has been praised by one of the best composers of the last century, Michael Hoppè, as “Wonderfully expressive violin playing; it’s quite simply … one of the most wonderful sounds one can hear.”
Tourists use to bring his guests as an A list of entertainers in San Miguel de Allende, and they always leave mesmerized by this true prodigy.
His music leaves people in a state of euphoria, each performance filled with love and so much raw talent that it’s an overwhelming privilege to be invited to these beautiful venues to listen to this master of the violin.
San Miguel de Allende is a true musical arts community, and David is not to be missed, so if you are visiting for the first time or blessed to live here, please treat yourself to an evening of pure musical appreciation and delicious food.
For this concert he will share a Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Rolling Stones tribute along with his marvelous musicians, including the amazing Sharon Itoi from Japan at the piano, the talented Archi Gallardo at the drums, the gorgeous and amazing singer Andrea Aristizabal from Colombia, the incredible José Galván at the bass, the terrific Anthony Duncan on the guitar from Tennessee, and the young special guest Mairead O’Grady from San Diego, California, on drums.
This will take place at the beautiful garden of Tres Fuentes Hotel Boutique at Baeza 7 in Centro, adjacent to the gorgeous Parque Benito Juárez. The concert starts at 6pm, accompanied by an optional delicious dinner by Tres Fuentes Restaurant. This is an intimate outdoor venue with comfortable seating for no more than 100 people.
Tickets are available at the Biblioteca Pública on Insurgentes 25, Centro, as well as in the Tres Fuentes Hotel lobby.
Linda Carlson is a retiree living in San Miguel.
