Female mariachi musicians keep heritage alive


Co-founder of Mexico’s premier, all-female Mariachi Las Perlitas Tapatias, is Leticia Elias, now of Gilbert. She brings her experience of working with the great masters of Guadalajara to her new mariachi group, Mariachi Tierra Linda, which appears from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at Food City, 1005 N. Arizona Ave. at Ray in Chandler and throughout the Valley. As children, Elias and her four sisters studied mariachi music in Guadalajara and started Las Perlitas Tapatias when she was just 14. Today the group is known for its traditional mariachi classics and “exciting nuances representing the youthful energy” of Mariachi Tierra Linda.


Elias is dedicated to keeping this music alive by fostering young mariachi performers through a small nonprofi t where they teach instrumentation, vocal techniques and traditional songs and ballads to more than 40 children in an after-school program.
