MARIACHI GARIBALDI DE JAIME CUÉLLAR
"The generous program of 13 numbers, several of them tributes to departed legends such as Selena and Juan Gabriel, displays Mariachi Garibaldi’s powerful voices, in particular the rich operatic tenor of Gustavo Hernandez. The troupe’s multi-instrumentalists switch with seeming effortlessness from fever-paced violins to mellow horns to various forms of guitars." - Janice Steinberg, San Diego Story
Hear the showcase from their new show
Legends of Mexico/Leyendas de Mexico:
Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar has truly become America's Mariachi! First: multi-styling videos with pop sensation Camila Cabello! Second, a viral "Jacket Exchange" with Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Joe Kelly, who proudly wore it to the White House to meet Joe Biden! With a 26-year history of shows that delight audiences at both intimate venues and major theaters throughout the U.S. and Mexico, the ensemble tours its own show, Leyendas de Mexico/Legends of Mexico, while also collaborating with a Who’s Who of Mexican artists including Aida Cuevas, Pedro Fernandez, Ana Barbara and Angela Aguilar. They also tour four different sell-out shows with Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles with whom their 2017 production of “Tale as Old as Time” from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast for the “mitú” network, went viral with over 16 million views! Avid proponents of music education, the group teaches mariachi for all ages at their own Academy for Performing Arts (https://thee-academy.com/).
"Camila Cabello's new song, “La Buena Vida,” features the California-based outfit, Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar. The snappy tune finds Cabello belting a kiss-off over a swift rush of strings, horns, and guitars."
"The student show went very well! Lots of happy students in the audience."

"The show at the Soraya was seamless thanks to the master musical arrangements by Jaime Cuellar and his Mariachi Garibaldi."
