Aida Cuevas, “The Queen of Ranchera,” is beloved at home in Mexico and abroad for her stunning vocals and unswerving devotion to traditional music.
On this spirited tribute tour, Cuevas pays tribute to Juan Gabriel, one of Mexico’s most prolific and beloved songwriters. Over her 42-year music career, Cuevas has sung many hits composed by Gabriel, and here she revisits audience favorites such as “Te Lo Pido Por Favor”, “Te Sigo Amando”, and “La Diferencia”. She will be joined by Mexico City-based Mariachi Juvenil Tecalitlan, with special guests on requinto, accordion, percussion, and keyboards. Cuevas is the only artist authorized by the Juan Gabriel estate to record and tour his music.
Rancheras stems from the Mexican revolution and the genre is overflowing with drama and patriotism. Cuevas has made a career of challenging this historically male-dominated genre with her operatic range, a voice strong enough to overcome a dozen amplified instruments and performances that overflow with passion.
The Totalmente Juan Gabriel tour is presented by IMG Artists and the Chicago-based Mariachi Heritage Foundation.
