Los Huracanes del Norte

Los Huracanes del Norte may have formed in California in 1969, but they would become one of the most celebrated purveyors of a specific style of traditional Mexican music known as Norteño, dance music utilizing banjo and accordion. The band started when Francisco, Heraclio, and Jesũs Garcia, three brothers originally from the Mexican city of Tangancicuaro, joined forces with Asunción Rubalcava. They gained momentum after adding yet another Garcia brother, Guadalupe, who wrote “Corrido de Daniel Treviño”, the song that would become their first regional hit and bring them to the attention of record labels. They built their audience steadily through regular touring, film appearances, and releasing albums at a pace of often more than one a year. Over the course of decades, they became superstars in Hispanic culture. Well into the 2010’s, their original albums would go top 10 on the American Latin chart, and top 10 in Mexico. Their enduring popularity was cemented by the chart success they enjoyed late into their careers; singles such as 2012’s “Como Le Hago”, 2013’s “A Mi Modo” 2015’s “Dibajo del Puente”, and 2016’s “Amarte Es Hermoso”, all landed in the top 10 of Billboard’s Mexico Popular Airplay chart even as the band closed in on their 50th anniversary together.
