DE JAIME CUÉLLAR
Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar has captivated and delighted audiences at both intimate venues and major theaters throughout the United States, including the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre, Bakersfield Fox Theatre, and the Auditorium Theater in Chicago. 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.
"The show at the Soraya was seamless thanks to the master musical arrangements by Jaime Cuellar and his Mariachi Garibaldi."
-Benjamin C. Hernandez, Professor Emeritus in Dance, East Los Angeles College

The video of the performance received 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.
