With a full house at the main hall of the Palace of Fine Arts, the Yukalpetén Typical Orchestra (OTY) closed the commemorations of its 81st anniversary, accompanied by the performers Maricarmen Pérez, Emma Isabel, Javier Alcalá and Jesús Armando, soloists of the group, in collaboration with Rodrigo de la Cadena and Jorge Buenfil.

As part of Yucatán Expone, the Típica de Yukalpetén culminated its presentations in Mexico City with a free concert in the country’s most important cultural venue.

Under the baton of Pedro Carlos Herrera, the OTY made the Palacio de Bellas Artes vibrate by opening with Caminante del Mayab, by Luis Rosado Vega and Augusto Guty Cárdenas.

The musicians also performed pieces by Armando Manzanero, Enrique Coqui Navarro, Ricardo Palmerín, Juan Acereto, Guadalupe Trigo and Sergio Esquivel, among others.

“We thank you for your presence in this cultural forum, the most important in Latin America. Every time we come to Mexico City we feel very welcomed by you, who are the reason for the existence of this orchestra,” said Pedro Carlos Herrera, OTY’s artistic director.

Prior to its presentation at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, the Yucatecan musical institution gave four performances in Mexico City’s Zócalo.

Highlights included the performance of Bonita, written by Yucatecan José Antonio Monís Zorrilla Martínez; Jorge Buenfil singing La ausencia de tu presencia, of his own inspiration and Hoy, a poem by Fernando Espejo to which he set to music; as well as the performance of No, a hit by Armando Manzanero by Rodrigo de la Cadena.

This is the fourth time that the OTY performs at the Palacio de Bellas Artes after 81 years of the orchestra’s career, which has also become a tradition and a breeding ground for talent.

The OTY thanked the audience for their warmth and affection with a Yucatecan medley from México lindo y querido, a piece that was joined by the voices of the audience, as a sign of promise to meet again with the most representative orchestra of the Mayab in this venue.
