About the Event

Julia Chacón Flamenco Theatre brings National and international flamenco artists together to perform unforgettable dance and music, drawing on tradition and improvisation, so no two performances are the same. Beautiful costumes, undulating arms, fiery footwork, intricate Spanish guitar, and soul-stirring vocals come together to deliver an unforgettable show.

Chacón, who has more than 15 years of international performing and production experience, founded Inspiración Flamenca (now known as Julia Chacón Flamenco Theatre) in 2008 with the mission of celebrating the community nature of flamenco and promoting cultural understanding through this rich and complex art.

“Cuevas is to Mexico what Aretha Franklin is to the United States: a powerful voice that encapsulates the essence of her nation’s spirit.” — The Kansas City Star 

“Aida Cuevas is Mexico’s most important female voice celebrating a long-lasting career, leaving a remarkable imprint in the history of Mexican music.” — Broadway 

Biography 

Cuevas became the first female singer in the mariachi genre to win a Grammy® when she was honored at the 2018 awards for Best Regional Mexican Music Album for her studio album Arrieros Somos (Versiones Acústicas). The album is a collection of acoustic versions of Mexican classics by renowned composer Cuco Sánchez.  She previously won a Latin Grammy® for Best Tango Album for her 2010 release De Corazón a Corazón…Mariachi Tango. 

Her latest releases, Antología de la Música Ranchera, Vol. I and Vol. 2, are two studio albums produced during the pandemic, both of which earned Grammy® and Latin Grammy® nominations in 2020 and 2021, respectively. 

A master of the mariachi art song, Cuevas performs a full range of mariachi numbers, including the falsetto heavyweight “El Pastor,” the iconic hits “Te Doy Las Gracias” and “Quizás Mañana,” and new songs from Totalmente Juan Gabriel Vol. II, including “Gracias Por Todo” and “Buscando el Séptimo Amor.” Cuevas also performs many ranchero classics, such as “Traición a Juan,” “Toro Relajo,” “Los Laureles,” and “No Me Amenaces.”
