William Faulkner
Jalisco Harpist

Traditional Mexican Harp Music

 

About Me

I have been playing harp since 1979, both as a soloist in the style of Zapotiltic, Jalisco and in mariachi. My harp and I have travelled throughout California and the Southwest United States as well as Mexico, Tahiti, the Marquesas Islands, New Zealand, England and Spain. My two main teachers were Arturo Mendoza, former harpist with the Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán and his father Jose Mendoza, both of Zapotiltic. I've given workshops at festivals in Mexico City, Guadalajara, California, Arizona and New Mexico. 

I am available for concerts, private parties, weddings and any type of festive occasion.

"Hablar de William es hablar de un alma jalisciense en un cuerpo de un americano. 
Le apasiona todo lo que tiene que ver con Jalisco; mujeres, amigos, bebidas y principalmente la música. 
Él, en su interpretación del arpa jalisciense; nos hace recordar a mi abuelo José Mendoza Cortes y a mi padre Arturo Mendoza Villalvazo quienes además fueron sus maestros; y no cabe duda que solo le hace falta sentarse en una casa de Zapotiltic e interpretar magistralmente su arpa jalisciense."

Enrique Mendoza Vargas
