Las Estrellas de Vancouver

facebook  

Formed during the summer of 2014 by Michelle Cormier, Mariachi Las Estrellas is comprised of a diverse, talented, and dedicated group of women musicians from a variety of backgrounds, including players from classical, jazz and world music. While all of them are involved in a variety of different projects, they came together out of their common love for mariachi music. The ensemble’s goal is to explore, in depth, the music of Mexico, a culture rich and varied in its musical traditions.

Traditionally the musical stomping ground of men, with the songs reflecting the male perspective, the rise in all-female mariachi groups here and in other locales reflects an empowering movement in the music form. In addition to playing at a range of concert and festival events, La Estrellas have participated in the first International Women’s Mariachi Festival in Tlaxcala, Mexico – and have hosted two Women’s Mariachi events here with guest historian and founder of the Women’s Mariachi Foundation in San Diego, California, Dr. Leonor Xochitl Perez.
