The enormously successful Cuatro Maestros Touring Festival was a music and dance performance festival by 4 celebrated elder master folk artists representing their respective Mexican and Mexican-American regional traditions accompanied by members of their own groups as well as youth group Los Cenzontles. The Cuatro Maestros Touring Festival created quite a stir in seven California cities including the California Plaza, Los Angeles, presented by Grand Performances; Cal State University Sacramento; Arte Americas, Fresno; Mexican Heritage Plaza, San Jose; Cal State University Monterey Bay; the City of San Fernando; the Julia Morgan Theater, Berkeley.

The traditions represented, rural in their origins, have made a tremendous contribution to the richness of Mexican music. This Touring Festival is a unique opportunity to learn personally about these traditions and the cultures from which they arose as well as celebrate their passing to new generations of artists. Each of these celebrated four regional elder masters learned his tradition in a family setting and is now passing them on to future generations.

The artists presented were: Santiago Jimenez Jr. and his Tex-Mex conjunto, Julian Gonzalez with traditional mariachi; Atilano Lopez and Alma Purepecha, and Andres Vega Delfin and Mono Blanco with the Son Jarocho.
