Escondido, CA — Tuesday, March 28, 2017 — The California Center for the Arts, Escondido proudly presents the two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning all-female ensemble The Mariachi Divas for a special Mother’s Day celebration on Sunday, May 14, 2017 in the Concert Hall at 2 pm. Directed and founded by trumpet player Cindy Shea in 1999, The Mariachi Divas continue to be at the forefront of the mariachi genre by seamlessly melding musical styles from Mexico, Colombia, Cuba, Venezuela, Germany, and Spain. In a historically male-dominated field, The Mariachi Divas stand out as a premiere group showing the world that top tier mariachi music can just as easily be performed by women rather than only by their male cohorts. Interviews and hi-res images are available upon request.

Imbued with the unique musical flavor of Los Angeles, The Mariachi Divas are a highly acclaimed ensemble with two GRAMMY® Award wins, six GRAMMY® Award-nominations and two Latin GRAMMY® Award-nominations. In 2003, The Mariachi Divas were discovered by the talent booker for Disney Resorts. The Mariachi Divas soon became the official mariachi band of Disneyland Resort, and quickly became a fixture at Disney’s California Adventure theme park and Downtown Disney’s “Tortilla Joe” restaurant. They went on to headline Disney festivals such as the holiday-themed “Viva Navidad.”

The Mariachi Divas have also appeared in independent films such as Dead Man’s Show, Ren and La Dentista and their rendition of Rick Martin’s hit, “La Bomba” was featured in the 2008 film, Julia. The Mariachi Divas’ music has been featured in the movie Mariachi Gringo, Ren and La Dentista, and two of their Christmas songs were featured on Hallmark greeting cards.
