Las Colibrí

About this Artist

Las Colibrí, or “The Hummingbirds,” have a passion for music, beauty, and girl power. These women are flying into new territory as one of the most unique ensembles of their genre by returning to the all-string instrumentation of the early 20th-century mariachi tradition and the colorful, feminine costumes of the Mexican cinematic divas of the ’40s and ’50s. After years of achieving much success individually as instrumentalists and vocalists in various professional arenas, these women have come together to form a string ensemble that is like no other in its genre. Aside from their unique interpretation of traditional sones, huapangos, and rancheras, audiences will also recognize sounds of jazz, rock, oldies, and R&B through their innovative arrangements. With a lovely blend of vocal harmonies, beautiful smiles, and traditional mariachi instrumentation, consisting of a guitarrón (bass), guitar, vihuela (soprano guitar), and violins, Las Colibrí will be sure to get you laughing, crying, singing, and even dancing to their contagious beats and melodies.
