Mariachi Aguilas is the longest running semi-professional group in Southern New Mexico. Under the direction of trumpeter and music educator Juan de la Cruz, Mariachi Aguilas has played a vital role in keeping the enriching tradition of authentic mariachi music alive in the Las Cruces area.
Mariachi Aguilas was established in March of 2000 under the direction of Luis Esuquivel, a native of San Antonio who brought many new ideas and techniques to Las Cruces. In 2002, Esquivel returned to Texas leaving the group to Juan de la Cruz, who has since led the group in becoming one of the premier mariachis in the region. In recent years they have won several mariachi competitions and awards in the states of New Mexico and Texas, and have shared the stage with numerous internationally recognized artists, such as Ana Barbara, Aida Cuevas, Ezequiel Peña, and Mariachi Sol de Mexico.
This group continues to represent the beautiful culture and heritage of mariachi music in each performance, and they look forward to continuing their legacy for many years to come.
