Formed in London in 2013, Mariachi Las Soldaderas is a unique band that was born out of the desire to shatter stereotypes within this traditionally male-dominated genre. A 7-piece all-female band originally from Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, and the UK, they are the only female Mariachi band in Europe.
In July 2018, they played at the Women’s Mariachi Festival in L.A, where they shared the stage with twice Grammy award-winning Mariachi Divas, received a standing ovation, and were interviewed and played live on both Univision and Telemundo TV channels, as well as featured in countless publications such as El Diario New York, WAPA the Spanish beauty magazine, EFE, ADN40 Mexico, El Plural.com, El Milenio (Mexico), El Confidencial (Spain) and La Opinion (USA).
Other past clients/ venues include the Mexican & U.S Embassies in London, the British Museum, the Victoria & Albert museum, IKEA, Disney, the British Library and the Camden Roundhouse.
They serenaded Salma Hayek at her private birthday celebration in London in September 2019 and have also played for pop star Sophie Ellis Bextor. As well as this, the band have played for the opening of the Arcade Fire concerts in London’s Earls Court.
Each member is a fantastic instrumentalist, and there are no less than three lead vocalists, all with the vocal power and clarity expected from any serious mariachi band. All the Mariachi classics are included in their repertoire, plus beautiful arrangements of well-known songs arranged in an authentic mariachi style, which makes the band unique and versatile.
