Los Temerarios

Created in 1977 by brothers Adolfo and Gustavo Ángel, Mexican grupero group Los Temerarios (English: The Daredevils) first emerged as a duo, initially calling themselves Conjunto Brisa. The following year, the Fresnillo-based pair invited their cousin, Fernando, into the fold, changing their name and knuckling down to record more material. At first taking a DIY approach to their radio plugging, they visited local stations in person, striking up a rapport with key players which translated into crucial regional airplay. Soon, they had signed a major deal with CBS/Sony, with whom they released a debut album entitled Los Temerarios en las alturas in 1984. With the LP and its two follow-ups signalling steady, incremental growth for the group, they were able to bag a new deal with Universal imprint Disa, with whom they landed a huge breakthrough after releasing 1987’s Fue un juego. Making further gains in the early 1990s with a run of internationally distributed albums, the group struck gold with the singles “Qué de raro tiene”, which made history as the first ranchera song to top the Billboard Hot Latin Songs Chart, and “No dejo de amarte”, which served as the theme for the film Lola the Truck Driver 3. With their popularity soaring throughout the 21st century, they celebrated a million sales of their 2000 album En la madrugada se fue in the United States, later winning two Latin Billboard Music Awards in 2003. Despite frequent lineup changes, the group have continued to release new material on a near-annual basis, and were inducted into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016.
