Gumecindo "Gino" Rivera founded Mariachi Azteca de America on March 18, 2006. Rivera derives from three generations of Mariachi Los Parientes, and experience with Mariachi Mexicanisimo and Mariachi Azteca. Dedication to traditional elements of Mariachi music with ambition to create original compositions, Rivera has made way for a new name and new sounding group in the talented city of San Antonio, TX. Ranging from 21-34 yrs of age, the groups repertoire consists of the traditional styles of Jose Alfredo Jimenez, Javier Solis, Vicente Fernandez to a unique sound from original pieces from Gino Rivera. Songs such as "Tema Azteca," "Ayer," and "Mamá" to songs from Pedro Moreno such as "No Puedo Olvidarte" and "No Tengo Nada."
"La Pajarita" and "Dame Un Minuto" are two more original compositions you can find on our CD! This ten piece ensemble will impress you without a doubt. You will not be disappointed when experiencing Mariachi Azteca de América!!.
