“… not ‘your fav Mariachi band’ or ‘your new fav girl group’ … so beyond that, man.”
– QuestLove, The Roots
This Latin Grammy-winning, New York-based all-female ensemble and beloved press darlings continue to win the hearts of both progressive and traditional Mariachi music fans alike through their distinct artistic vision and sophisticated, enlightened interpretation of traditional mariachi instruments. The female quartet’s diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds have also transcended culture and gender by forging new paths, defining their unique sound and an edgy, versatile fresh take on traditional Mexican music. While working to preserve centuries-old traditions of Mariachi, the group’s melding of the traditional and the modern pushes the boundaries of the genre and brings Mariachi music to new audiences.
