When you think ‘mariachi’ you most likely think of the deep powerful sound of a man’s voice, but if you listen closely to this unique mariachi, you’ll hear they are strumming, singing and dancing to a different key. Mariachi Las Alteñas is an all female mariachi group that is making waves across the United States. Their mission is to achieve excellence as overall musicians and performers, and to raise the standards for women in mariachi music. This prestigious mariachi is under the direction of Valerie Vargas and consists of 13 members, ages ranging from 21 to 35. Las Alteñas has a complete instrumentation, which includes six violins, three trumpets, a guitarron, vihuela, guitarra de golpe, and guitar creating a full mariachi sound acknowledged in the industry. Many spectators are impressed with not only the musicianship, but also with the groups’ stage presence. Choreography plays a major role in the groups’ performances as does interacting with the audience. The groups’ philosophy is not simply to sing a song, but rather interpret the meaning and communicate that meaning with the audience. Its approach has audiences offering standing ovations after each performance. Their signature colorful Trajes de Charro and vocal harmonies draw abundant crowds to their performances as they are featured in three restaurants in San Antonio, Texas. Mariachis are the flavor of Mexico. Mariachi Las Alteñas are known for their musical diversity, which appeals to crowds of all generations. The women that make up Las Alteñas are a stunningly beautiful group of musicians who are clearly proud of their Mexican heritage and who are eager to share that heritage. Their name is taken from the mountainous area in Jalisco, Mexico. “Son de Los Altos de Jalisco.” Las Alteñas are from an area described as being near the top of the world, and fans say these ladies are up there! In a predominately male industry, this all female Mariachi has indeed created their unique mark in the mariachi world. Las Alteñas will change what you think of mariachi music. They’re young, they’re driven, and with them, every night is ladies night.
