Arriba Mexico: Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar
7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar has captivated and delighted audiences at both intimate venues and major theaters throughout the United States. Founded in 1994 by Jaime Cuéllar, the ensemble of 8-12 mariachi musicians is now led by his son, Jimmy K. Cuéllar, a three-time Grammy award winner in his own right. Frequently collaborating with other artists such as Pedro Fernandez, Ana Barbara and Angela Aguilar, a 2017 production by the “mitú” network where they teamed with Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles to recreate “Tale as Old as Time” from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, went viral with over 15 million views! Most recently, Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar were featured artists in Center Stage Opera’s 2019 production of Mozart’s Le Nozze de Figaro. Avid proponents of music education, the group teaches mariachi for all ages at their own Academy for Performing Arts.
