33 Years

Bola Suriana began in Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico in December of 1989. General Emiliano Zapata, who fought beside the poor for land and liberty during the Mexican Revolution of 1910, called his army Bola Suriana. The group took its name in honor of Zapata.

Since its founding, Bola Suriana has worked hard to present and diffuse traditional and popular music from Mexico and other Latin American countries, especially indigenous and mestiza music from Michoacán, as well as Canto Nuevo (protest music) which has surfaced as its own type of music. The Bola composes many of its own pieces within these and other genres, presenting them in many concerts annually in Michoacán, throughout the rest of Mexico, and abroad.

Thirty- three international tours, participating in festivals and offering concerts in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Greenland, Germany, Russia, Lithuania, Argentina, Chile, Puerto Rico, Canada, Bolivia, Cuba and in the United States, as well as many presentations on radio and television within and outside of Mexico, demonstrate the constant work that Bola Suriana has done and continues to do.
