Influenced by traditional Mariachi music, Maria The Mexican is a mezcla of Mexican folklore and Rock n' Roll. For ten years, Maria Elena Cuevas and her sister, Teresa, performed with Mariachi Estrella founded by their grandmother Teresa Cuevas in 1970. As one of the first all female mariachi bands in the country, Maria Teresa Alonzo Cuevas is a pioneer in the Hispanic musical community. In 2012, Maria and Teresa connected with long time Alt-R&B musician, Garrett Nordstrom to form the fusion of Maria The Mexican. MTM is mixed with a touch of blues, soul, funk, and rock n' roll enhanced by the musical knowledge and sounds of Nordstrom. With a southwestern flare and melancholy motifs, Maria The Mexican rocks it out in Spanish and English with a host of emotion.
