Banda El Recodo

Banda Sinaloense El Recodo de Cruz Lizárraga, commonly known by the shortened name Banda El Recodo, is a renowned Mexican band established in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, in 1938. It is one of the longest-running and most influential Mexican brass bands of all time, having performed shows in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, North and South America. Founded by Cruz Lizárraga, Banda El Recodo is named after his birthplace. The group's first album, the self-titled Banda El Recodo (1958), was a strongly impactful work. They went on to release enduring records such as Que Siga La Tambora (1963), El Sinaloense (1979), and A Bailar con El Recodo (1985). The band underwent an important change in 1989 with the addition of vocalists, having previously focused primarily on instrumental music. Their collaborations with artists like José Alfredo Jiménez and Juan Gabriel further cemented their reputation. Following Cruz Lizárraga's death in 1995, the band continued to achieve success, with the release of notable albums like Desde el Cielo y Para Siempre (1996) and De Parranda con la Banda (1997). They have won nine Latin Grammys and were the first Mexican band to perform at the Latin Grammy Awards. Additionally, Banda El Recodo has earned 12 Premios Lo Nuestro, five Billboard Awards, five Premios Oye, and awards from Premios Bandamax. In 2013, the band released their 200th record, the critically acclaimed album Haciendo Historia, followed by other well-received releases such as Mi Vicio Más Grande (2015), Ayer y Hoy (2017), and Hecho en México... Mágico (2023).
