Mariachi Azteca de America (MADA) was established in 2006 and continues to be at the forefront of mariachi music for Texas, placing 1st at the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo professional mariachi competition back-to-back in 2015 and 2016. Mariachi Azteca de America has shared the stage with Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan and Mariachi Sol de Mexico and has accompanied Placido Domingo, Aida Cuevas, Paquita La Del Barrio, Steven Sandoval, Arturo Vargas, and many others. They have worked and collaborated with MPR (Munoz Public Relations) in teaching and performing for the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza since 2010. Performances include: Long Center (Austin) Lila Cockrell Theater (San Antonio), and four appearances in the ‘Serenata para Las Madres’ concert at McCombs Empire Theatre. Most recently the mariachi has recorded and arranged music for Mateo Lopez, Michael Salgado, Rhonda Garcia, and Jonathan Palomar. MADA has also produced their very own, 8th annual ‘Noche de Romance’ concert at the historic Guadalupe Theatre, a must-see, sold-out show that supports the students of the Traditional Music Program of the Guadalupe Center.
