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

"They are amazing musicians. The vocals were outstanding. The Mexican extended falsettos performed by several of them were great.  Mariachi Garibaldi was equal in caliber to any classical string orchestra performing with operatic singers. Their musicianship and presentation was impeccable, well-styled and executed. The pizzicato passages by all three violinists were over the top."

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 30-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. Most recently Mariachi Garibaldi were featured performers for Camila Cabello’s Tiny Desk concert performing “La Buena Vida,” truly displaying that mariachi music transcends across all platforms. Including a production in 2017 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 school for Mexican Arts, Cue Music Inc. (https://www.cuemusicinc.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 show at the Soraya was seamless thanks to the master musical arrangements by Jaime Cuellar and his Mariachi Garibaldi."

"Last evening’s performance by Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuellar with Folklorico Dancers was the highlight of this year’s concert season. Several of our members went so far as to say that it was an all-time highpoint of our 27 years of presenting concerts. Each member of the group is an outstanding musician and performer. Their performance of this wonderful traditional music of Mexico’s streets and barrios easily lifted the music to the concert stage without losing its charm as a traditional expression of the soul of the people of Mexico. It is important to note that each member of the Mariachi is an outstanding performer, not only on their chosen instrument, but each was a powerful and expressive singer of the Mariachi tradition. The audience members are already asking “When can we have them back again?”
