Steeven Sandoval is one of the most acclaimed mariachi vocalists of all time. A talented singer since childhood, he has spent the past two decades performing, recording, and building a fan base throughout the world.
Steeven was raised in Guadalajara where he received his musical education. In 1991, he became a member of the renowned Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán. In 1999, he reached the top of the mariachi world when he joined Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán, where for the next 14 years he was featured as a vocal soloist. In 2012, Steeven left Vargas and returned to Nuevo Tecalitlán, where he concurrently began touring as a solo artist.
During his tenure with those two famous mariachis, Steeven toured the world, including Spain, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Canada, USA, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil. The Houston Grand Opera featured him in two mariachi operas: Cruzar la Cara de la Luna and El Pasado Nunca se Termina.
After dozens of successful concerts of his own, Steeven recently retired as a mariachi musician to devote himself exclusively to his solo career. He has recorded dozens of albums with Mariachi Vargas and Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán and recently released his own CD 100 Litros de Tequila. The album features mariachi classics like "Voy de Gallo," "A Los Cuatro Vientos," and his signature song, "Por Amor."
For the past two years, Mariachi Azteca de América has won the Best in Texas award at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's Go Tejano Day mariachi competition. Joining this exceptional San Antonio group on stage will be Kyle, Texas native Jizelle Rodriguez, who was recently selected as Grand Champion Vocalist during the 23rd Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza in December. Members of Grupo Folklorico de Bendiciones, who perform under the direction of Anthony Salazar, will also make an appearance.
