Aida Cuevas, “The Queen of Rancheras,” has created one of the most important careers in traditional Mexican music. She is beloved at home and abroad for her stunning vocals and unswerving devotion to traditional music.
On this spirited 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 is joined by Mexico City-based Mariachi Juvenil Tecalitlán, 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.
