Marlene “La Guera del Acordeón” DeHerrera



Modesto born and raised, I am Marlene “La Guera del Acordeón” DeHerrera, a singer-songwriter, musician, recording artist, and performer. My journey in Regional Mexican music has taken me from the humble stages of local restaurants and bars in South Modesto to performing across the United States and Mexico.

Early Life and Beginnings

Growing up in Modesto, I was surrounded by the vibrant sounds of Regional Mexican music. My early experiences playing music in the local scene, especially in South Modesto’s restaurants and bars, laid the foundation for my musical career. These modest beginnings instilled in me a deep passion for my cultural heritage and music.

Career and Touring

My career took a significant turn when I began touring with my father’s band, Los Reales del Norte. This opportunity allowed me to perform on prestigious stages in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Seattle, and Miami, among many others. The tour’s success extended beyond the U.S. border, leading to performances across Mexico.

In 2023, during a memorable tour in Mexico, I announced my plans to explore new musical projects. This decision was met with both great emotion and anticipation.

New Ventures

Today, I perform with Banda La Nueva Villa and Mariachi La Union. These collaborations aim to create music that not only honors Mexican culture but also resonates with a global audience. My goal is to bring fresh, innovative sounds to the industry, blending traditional elements with contemporary influences.

Personal Reflections

Throughout my journey, I have learned the importance of staying true to my roots while embracing new opportunities. Music has been a powerful medium for me to connect with people and share the richness of my culture. I believe in the universal language of music and its ability to unite people across different backgrounds.


From my modest beginnings in Modesto to touring internationally, my musical journey has been a testament to hard work, passion, and cultural pride. As I continue to evolve as an artist, I am excited to bring new music to the world that celebrates and transcends cultural boundaries.
