Mariachi, Ranchero, and Traditional… This Mexican Artist Performs It All with Finesse

Get ready to celebrate Mexican culture with an incredible live performance by Aida Cuevas. The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts presents a special concert by the accomplished artist on Sunday, October 14th at 7:00 p.m.

Aida Cuevas has created one of the most important careers in traditional Mexican music. With a 42-year career and 39 album releases to her credit, Cuevas, dubbed “The Queen of Mariachi”, is an esteemed figure in Mexico, beloved for her unswerving devotion to traditional mariachi music and for her mastery of its demanding vocal forms.

Cuevas became the first female singer in the mariachi genre to win a GRAMMY when she was honored at the 2018 awards for “Best Regional Mexican Music Album” for her CD Arrieros Somos. The album is a collection of acoustic versions of Mexican classics by renowned composer Cuco Sánchez. She previously won a Latin GRAMMY for “Best Tango Album” for her 2010 release De Corazón a Corazón.

Cuevas’ latest release Totalmente Juan Gabriel Vol. II, is the second of five CD installments in which she pays tribute to the legendary singer and songwriter. Gabriel produced two albums for Cuevas, 1983’s Aida Cuevas Canta a Juan Gabriel and 1985’s Exitos. The first volume of Totalmente Juan Gabriel was released in 2013. She is the only artist authorized by the Juan Gabriel estate to record and tour his music.

Cuevas is a master of the mariachi art song performing a full range of mariachi numbers. Cuevas also performs many ranchero classics. Her unique voice and style have allowed her to cultivate a successful career spanning decades, leaving a remarkable imprint in the history of Mexican music.

Don’t miss a sweeping performance by Aida Cuevas when she performs live on October 14th at H-E-B Performance Hall. Tickets start at $26.50 and may be purchased online.
