Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar will perform at two assemblies for K-6th grade students, 9 a.m. and 10:05 a.m., Monday, Feb. 27 at Mary Buren Elementary School in Guadalupe.

Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar has been playing for audiences throughout Mexico and the U.S. for the past 26 years. Featured on Camila Cabello’s new song, “La Buena Vida!,” the ensemble Mariachi Garibaldi regularly shares the stage with some of Mexico’s most beloved performers.

Under the direction of Jimmy “El Pollo” Cuéllar, son of Jaime, the group has appeared at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago, Teatro Degollado, Valley Performing Arts Center, Bakersfield Fox Theater, and Chandler Center for the Arts.

Mariachi Garibaldi enjoys a professional partnership with Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles, and together they have entertained thousands of people at sold-out venues. 

Originally from Bakersfield, California, Jimmy Cuéllar began his mariachi career as a teenager alongside his father, and was a founding member of Mariachi Garibaldi.

He was featured on the Grammy Award-winning album “cELLAbration: A Tribute to Ella Jenkins,” and the following year “Llegaron Los Camperos: Concert Favorites of Nati Cano’s Mariachi Los Camperos” received a Grammy nomination for Best Mexican Album.

The event at Mary Buren Elementary School is a part of ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! (Viva), a UCSB Arts & Lectures program that brings people together to share the cultural heritage of Latin America, serving some 15,000 students and community members annually in Santa Barbara County.
