The Queen of the Ranchera Returns To The US
Dubbed both 'Mexico's Aretha Franklin' and the 'Queen of the Ranchera', Aida Cuevas has spent over four decades at the centre of Mexican and Latin American music, from her early exposure on weekly radio program 'El Taller XEW' to the cultivation of an inimitable voice, style, charisma and tour-de-force performances that mark her a living legend. The Grammy Award-winning songstress returns to US shores for a series of special mariachi tribute concerts in honor of friend and mentor Juan Gabriel.
Considered one of the most prolific Mexican composers and performers in the history of Latin pop, Gabriel frequently collaborated with Cuevas, with the diva lending her stunning vocals to various Gabriel-penned mega hits including 'Te Lo Pido Por Favor' and 'Te Sigo Amando'. Performing a selection of his beloved classics, as well as a few of her own trademark tunes, Cuevas invites Mexico-City mariachi Juvenil Tecalitlan as well as a host of special guests on accordian, percussion, keyboards and requinto to stare the stage.
