In the coming week, we'll be featuring a special segment on Mariachi Estrella — a trailblazing group of Latina musicians from Kansas. Active for three decades, it was one of the first all-female mariachi bands in the nation.

Maria Cuevas, our Bridge Artist of the Week, continues Mariachi Estrella's legacy, blending her family's musical traditions with a contemporary rock flare. Her solo project starts where Maria the Mexican — a group she founded with her sister Tess — left off. Both members of Mariachi Estrella as kids, the Cuevas sisters built upon the education from their grandmother Teresa Cuevas (co-founder of the mariachi group) and gave it a passionate, modern groove.  

Tune in to The Bridge all week to hear more from Maria Cuevas! Listen on air, stream online, via our App or your smart speaker by saying "Play The Bridge from TuneIn / IHeartRadio."
