Two legendary names in Mexican music unite for a concert extravaganza! Aida Cuevas, Latin Grammy Award® Winner, and Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, the first all-female mariachi ensemble, are joining for a night of celebration in Mexico y su Mujer at the Long Center, Tuesday, October 25. Tickets are on sale today!
“The Queen of Ranchera Music,” Aida Cuevas has released 37 albums over an artistic career spanning almost 40 years. Discovered at the age of 11, Cuevas quickly exchanged singing contests and radio gigs for European stages and the title “La Voz de México” (The Voice of Mexico). As one of the singularly important figures of traditional Mexican and Latin American music in the world, this Latin Grammy Award® Winner has sold more than 8 million copies of her hit albums worldwide.
Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles is the perfect match to Cuevas’ larger-than-life persona. As the first all-female mariachi ensemble, this 12-member group challenges a historically male-dominated musical genre and shows that there are no limits to what female mariachi talent can achieve. Having inspired many other all-female mariachi ensembles since forming in 1994, Reyna can proudly say that they were innovators rather than successors. Named after the City of Angels for their angelic voices, Reyna has created a new world of mariachi music in which the female voice is well-heard—loud and clear—while continuing to honor tradition in musical form.
With Aida Cuevas’ mastery of the mariachi art song alongside Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles’ musical prowess in Mexico y su Mujer, audiences are in for a rollicking evening of sequins, bright colors, and the celebration of tradition. !Que Vivan Las Mujeres!
