About Mariachi Las Adelitas UK

Mariachi band
London
Public liability insurance of £1000000 million
An all female, authentic mariachi band, based in London

The ‘Adelitas’ were Mexican warrior women who took to arms in the Mexican revolution to rebel against the many injustices of the time. Hailing from Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, and the U.K this unique band was formed in 2013 out of the desire to shatter stereotypes within the genre. Empowerment, inclusion, and a regard for women’s issues are part of the social responsibility that comes with their name. They recently returned from playing at the Women’s Mariachi Festival in L.A, California where they received a standing ovation and played live on both Univision and Telemundo TV channels, and were featured in countless publications. They were the chosen band at the Mexican Independence day celebrations hosted by the Mexican embassy in London. Other past clients include the U.S Embassy, the British Museum, the Victoria & Albert museum, IKEA, Disney, the British Library to name a few. Not only is each member a fantastic instrumentalist in her own right, but there are no less than three lead vocalists in the group, all with the vocal power and clarity expected in any serious mariachi band. Officially a 6-piece band, they can expand to a 10 piece or play in smaller groups if required. With tight vocal harmonies and years of experience on their instruments and in the mariachi style, they also look great! They are available to play serenades as per the Mexican tradition, as well as festivals, cultural events and absolutely any kind of celebration. All of the mariachi classics are included in their repertoire, with some beautiful arrangements of well-known songs including classics in English arranged in an. authentic mariachi style, which makes the band truly versatile. They have 4 different styles of mariachi outfits made to measure in Mexico, including the 'Adelitas' outfits. Instruments in the band are Guitar, Vihuela (small Mexican percussive guitar, Guitarron (a very large Mexican bass guitar, played in octaves to double the volume of the sound), trumpets and violins. They can travel anywhere and are very happy to learn any favourite song for a special occasion. You can happily hire them completely acoustically or they can also provide amplification if needed.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We certainly do! We can go as large as an 8 piece all female mariachi band or even larger with some males thrown in, right down to a duo if your budget is on the low side. Although a duo and a trio still look and sound good, neither are considered authentic in mariachi, where at least 4 musicians is the recommended minimum. The more the better!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try to be flexible but please do communicate any changes with us in good time, so that we can accommodate your requests.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Of course, no problem!

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually arrive 1 hour before the performance time, which gives plenty of time both to set up and go through any last minute details.

Can you roam around while you perform?

We are Experts at roaming while performing!

Can you wear traditional Mariachi outfits?

Of course. We have several beautiful mariachi outfits handmade for us in Mexico, as well as our 'Adelitas' outfit. Please see our pictures and let us know if you have a preference.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely. We have small portable amplifiers we can wear while playing, and can also bring a small PA if needed.

Anna and Las Adelitas set the tone perfectly for our event, playing throughout our champagne reception, and as guests took their seats. Fun, upbeat, and colourful, the costumes and music were great, we would be delighted to recommend them. A couple of issues with email communication, but not a problem as far as the event was concerned. Gracias Las Adelitas.

Awesome group! They were really easygoing and went along with the free-flowing style of the event perfectly, greeting guests as they arrived and then wandering through the party / playing at different intervals. They booked travel that gave them plenty of time before and after and their communication beforehand was great. A pleasure to have them at our summer office party!

We went to see Mariachi Las Adelitas in Hastings (Fat Tuesday Festival) after watching one Youtube video and they blew me (and everyone that saw them) away!! We followed them to three venues (in favour of other bands we'd gone to see) as the experience was too good to miss out on. The costumes, the charming introductions and the joie de vivre of their performances were all first class as were there choice of songs. I can't recommend them enough (even if you have no knowledge or interest in Mariachi) as they are the most refreshing and enjoyable band I have seen in some time. Can't wait to see them again.
