"It is with great honor to present this video to all of our fans. We have been working on a little something for you to enjoy at home with your loved ones. In times like these we have seen our mariachi community face struggles and we are blessed to have been able to create this project with our amazingly talented musicians and friends. Although the quarantine may keep us apart, we are stronger and closer than ever! Special thanks goes to our compañera and friend Suemy González. Also one of our very own, Amelia García, for their collaboration in making this possible for us." -Mariachi Nuevo Mujer 2000

About the Band
"Continuing the legacy of previous mariachi pioneers, Laura Garciacano Sobrino and Marisa Orduno,  Mariachi Nuevo Mujer 2000 is keeping those doors open for women in mariachi as ambassadors, earning their equal part in a male dominated genre. Meeting high standards in musicianship, our goal involves surpassing previous stereotypes, as each member of this ensemble represents tradition, culture and education all in one.
Our vibrant sounds from acclaimed arrangers and composers, will transport you from traditional to modern melodies ranging from Jose Alfredo Jimenez, Joan Sebastian, Juan Gabriel and many more." (more)
