Los Flamers

Los Flamers is a famous and long-standing Mexican Cumbia band. The group was formed in the mid-1960s by Roberto Eugenio Bueno Campos. The original line-up included Roberto Bueno, Alberto Sandoval, Fidel Barriga, Raúl Alatorre, and Rodolfo Aguilar. Over time, the group's membership evolved and underwent several changes, with notable members such as Fernando Lopez, Manny Dominguez, and David Roman joining the ranks. Initially, the band covered songs by US and British bands and began recording with RCA Records/Sony BMG in 1978. They became one of Mexico's most popular cumbia groups with hits like "El Chicle," "El Tizón," and "Camaron Pelao." Their discography is extensive, with albums spanning from 1978's self-titled Los Flamers to projects like Gran Reventón '99 (1999) and beyond. In 1985, they released Bailemos Cumbiarengue, followed by albums like Te Amo Chunchaca in 1990 and Los Reyes del Baile in 1991, marking important milestones in their career. In 2007, the group had a late-career hit with the song "Dieciséis Toneladas," from the album Chica Vacilona. The group's adaptability has been a hallmark, integrating a variety of rhythms such as rock and roll, twist, jerk, and tropical sounds like cumbia and salsa. After nearly five decades in the music industry, they continue to be active and are considered a musical institution in Veracruz.
