Edwin Origel - Voice 

Juan Morales started classical guitar studies at an early age in his hometown of Hermosillo. He also learned several folk string instruments and took ethnomusicology classes with his teacher and mentor, Leticia Varela, Ph.D.


After studying at UdeG, he returned to Hermosillo and started his first youth mariachi ensemble with which he attended several mariachi conferences in the US. There, he met maestro Nati Cano, who encouraged him to relocate to Los Angeles. Curiously, the first opportunity to move to LA came as an offer to play vihuela for Mariachi Sol de México. Mariachi Los Camperos came next and he spent about a decade in LA before moving to the Central Valley to work with several school districts and non-profit organizations as a mariachi music consultant.


Juan Morales and his wife, Leticia, are now owners and directors of The Mariachi Studio, a private music academy in the Central Valley, home of award-winning youth ensemble Mariachi Mestizo.
