Each member of Mariachi Las Adelitas is a professional instrumentalist, with no less than three lead vocalists in the group. Mariachi classics are included in their repertoire, with original compositions and some beautiful arrangements of classics in English arranged in authentic mariachi style, making them truly versatile.
