With singer-songwriter Agustín Ramírez later steering their sonic ship into Billboard chart waters, Los Caminantes formed in San Bernardino County, California in the mid-1970s and have been flying the flag for Mexico's regional grupera music ever since. Originally called Los Caminantes Aztecas, the band comprised brothers Agustín, Brígido, Horacio and Bernardo Ramírez before Martín Ramírez replaced Bernando Ramírez on the keyboards in 1982 and Humberto Navarro later joined as their drummer. They released their debut album, Supe Perder, in 1983 and unleashed a steady stream of albums throughout the 1980s and 1990s, including 1986's De Guanajuato...Para America! which topped the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart. The following year, Martín Ramírez was tragically killed in a tour bus accident and the group released a tribute album, Gracias Martin, that same year. Also known by the nickname Los Chulos, Chulos, Chulos, Los Caminantes amassed a huge number of albums traversing a variety of regional Mexican styles – including cumbia and mariachi – over the next few decades, with Los Chulos, Chulos, Chulos landing in 2013.
