El Mercado


What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

As musicians, we love to go places. Music has opened a lot of doors and welcomed me to many homes, halls, theaters, arenas, and backyards across the country and outside of it. It's a pleasure to connect with so many different types of people alike.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

I would love to work with singer/songwriter Raymix who is writing the new Cumbia classics that will live on. I'm also very inspired by Paquita la del Barrio and Dolly Parton who are still working and touring after 50+ years.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

First part to the musicians for their hard work on the show and being a part of the journey with me. The rest would be capital for the continuation of MariaChingona as a musical force so we can go strongly into 2023 with new music.
