Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles

Last weekend my mom and I attended the Latino Heritage Festival in Palm Springs. We attended in the afternoon to see the Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles perform. Las Reinas are an all female mariachi group. I love mariachi. I get lost in the sound of the guitars and violin and then when they begin to sing…it’s like heaven.

As we waited for them to get settled on stage I began looking at the mountains, not paying attention anymore. Suddenly, a beautiful sound erupted. These women are phenomenal. I almost thought I was listening to a recording. My mom and I sat in awe. Almost every woman sang a solo at one point and each one is a master of their instrument.

If you are ever in Los Angeles you can check them out at Cielto Lindo restaurant. All of the details are on their website. I highly recommend attending. I am not a concert goer. Usually I feel like the cd is better and get bored but mariachi music is best listened to in person.

Here is short video of Las Reinas performing. It doesn’t do them justice, but you can at least get an idea of what it’s like.
