In a musical landscape where songs are often written by men, from male perspectives, Reyna has created its own history.
As such, in 2018 Smithsonian Folkways selected Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles as the latest artist in its Traditions Series of Latino music albums, produced with support from the Smithsonian Latino Center.
Established in 1994, the group had a strong beginning thanks to the mentorship of Lola Bertran, La Reina de La Musica Ranchera.
The group has since gone on to record three albums, share the stage with world-renowned musicians like Vicki Carr, Guadalupe Pineda, and Lucha Villa, and perform for some of the world’s highest profile celebrities including Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey, and Barack and Michelle Obama.
