Cinco de Mayo at Miller is a guaranteed festive time for the whole family and this year we are proud to present Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea!
Directed and founded in 1999 by trumpet player Cindy Shea, Mariachi Divas is an all-female ensemble that continues to expand the scope of mariachi music. A two-time Grammy Award winner, with eight Grammy nominations and three Latin Grammy nominations, Mariachi Divas is a multicultural ensemble imbued with a truly unique musical flavor.
Learning to play the trumpet at the age of eight, Cindy knew she wanted to be a professional musician early on. Through hard work and determination, she caught the attention of famed Latin Jazz icon, Arturo Sandoval. Impressed by her talent and musical knowledge, he offered her a full scholarship to study jazz performance at Florida International University as his student. While studying in Miami, Florida, she became immersed in the local music scene which centered on Salsa music and Latin jazz. Through this experience, she gained a deep appreciation and love for Latino culture and music which would serve her well in the future.
By 1999, she was invited to join an all-female, LA-based mariachi, Mariachi Alondras. She instantly fell in love with mariachi music and within that same year decided to form her own group, Mariachi Divas.
