A 360° Celebration of Mariachi and Dance


Jaunt Studios and VR Playhouse have teamed up in celebration of Cinco de Mayo to bring us a visual display of music and dance in their latest 360° video experience “La Fuerza Imprevista.”

The celebration of Mexican heritage VR experience features Latin Grammy-nominated all-female mariachi band Flor de Toloache, elegant ballet folklorico dancers from Leyenda Dance Company and beatboxer, Musical Mammal. The roughly 6-minute long video is a modern interpretation of traditional Mexican art that provides viewers with an immersive viewing experience of a lively cultural performance.


To produce the “La Fuerza Imprevista,” Jaunt Studios and VR Playhouse filmed in former cathedral-turned-event space Vibiana for its powerful acoustics and expansive, ornate setting that lends itself to a memorable visual experience. As the mariachi band and dancers swirl in from all directions, beatboxer Musical Mammal creates an interlude between the songs, effectively merging tradition with modernity.

The experience was filmed using the Jaunt ONE camera system that simultaneously records 3D stereoscopic video in all directions.

You can explore the performance yourself, which is now available on the Jaunt VR app for iOS, Android, Gear VR, Rift and the Vive.
