MARIACHI Reyna De Los Angeles
Perhaps the greatest tribute to Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles –the first all female mariachi in the United States is that now there are actually other all-female mariachi groups. It is the growing proof that when mariachi Maestro José Hernández created Reyna de Los Angeles, it wasn’t a novelty; it was a genre. Reyna, which was formed in 1994, has taken the history of women in mariachi music from being solely singers to being the full complement of musical performers. The compliments have not stopped.
