The Trithe iconic rock band originally from Mexico, has just made history by performing a historic concert with simultaneous translation for the deaf and people with hearing problems, with which they also celebrated the group’s 55 years.

The recital took place this June 22 in the Plaza de César Chávez square in San José, CA., as part of the popular festival Music In The Park.

“For us, the fact that our interpreters have been translating the lyrics of El Tri’s songs to the audience, mainly to people with hearing difficulties, is something one hundred percent new that we have never had the opportunity to feel,” Lora tells People in spanish. “It was amazing and the breed really enjoyed it too.”

‘I think the performers enjoyed it and we enjoyed it very much,’ he continues. ‘A magical atmosphere was created that made us feel very comfortable.’
