Pop/rancher singer Shaila Durcal continues her US tour with several stops in California.

Durcal, daughter of the late great singer Rocio, is touring behind her latest CD "Corazón Ranchero," which has been nominated for several Grammys. Shaila Durcal has also received several gold and platinum records for CD sales.

Backing Durcal on this tour is the renown troupe Mariachi Sol de México de Jose Hernández. The show includes folkloric dancers and multiple costume changes by Durcal.

In a recent interview, Durcal told the Stockton record that she wants to keep people interested in the traditional ranchera genre.

"That is precisely what I

want to do: those songs of a lifetime but with a new arrangement that makes them more international," Durcal said. "In that manner, you

 make them more modern and open to the youth."

Durcal recently performed in Reno, Nevada, Fresno, Stockton y Bakersfield, California. Her next stops include July 10, Center for the Performing Arts, San José, CA; July 11,  Gold Country Casino, Oroville CA; and July 17, Wells Fargo Theatre, Santa Rosa, CA.

Durcal will launch the east Coast leg of her US tour by late June.
