A distinguished trumpet player, Cindy Shea, is the founder of the Two-Time Grammy Award Winning Mariachi Divas, an all-female ensemble. Learning to play the trumpet at the age of eight, Cindy knew she wanted to be a professional musician early on. Through hard work and determination, she caught the attention of famed Latin Jazz icon, Arturo Sandoval, while studying music education at California State University, Fullerton. Impressed by her talent and musical knowledge, he offered her a full scholarship to study jazz performance at Florida International University as his student. While studying in Miami, Florida, she became immersed in the local music scene which centered on Salsa music and Latin jazz.
