Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea

Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea

Founded and directed by trumpet player Cindy Shea in 1999, Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea are making big waves on the national music scene. Mariachi Divas are the first female mariachi group ever to win a Grammy.

Mariachi Divas are a unique, multi-cultural, all female ensemble, imbued with the true flavor of Los Angeles and have been represented by women of Mexican, Cuban, Samoan, Argentinean, Colombian, Panamanian, Puerto Rican, Swiss, Japanese, Honduran, Peruvian, Tongan and Anglo descents. Cindy Shea states, "Music is a way of uniting our cultural backgrounds. In 2009, Mariachi Divas won the Grammy Award for Best Regional Mexican Album of the year for their 2008 release, Canciones De Amor. This marks the first time in the history of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences that an all-female mariachi group has been a nominee, or of course, a winner.
