"Mexico's most important female voice."—Broadway
A Tribute to Juan Gabriel
The "Queen of Ranchera Music," Aida Cuevas pays tribute to one of Mexico's most prolific and beloved songwriters in this spirited tribute to Juan Gabriel. Over her 40-year music career, Cuevas has sung many hits composed by Gabriel, and here she revisits audience favorites such as "Te Lo Pido Por Favor," "Te Sigo Amando," and "La Diferencia." She is joined by Mexico City-based Mariachi Juvenil Tecalitlán, with special guests on requinto, accordion, percussion, and keyboards. "Cuevas is to Mexico what Aretha Franklin is to the United States: a powerful voice that encapsulates the essence of her nation's spirit" (Kansas City Star).
