Formed in 2010 in Sinaloa, Mexico, Calibre 50 made their album debut that same year with Renovar o Morir, a powerful collection of narrative songs depicting regional themes like local rivalries and the seedier side of rural Mexican life. After scoring their first hit with 2011's "El Tierno Se Fue," the band released several more successful albums, cementing their status in Mexico and earning them a growing fanbase in the US. 2013's Corridos de Alto Calibre marked a return to roots for the band, standing as another fine collection of regional narrative ballads and anchored by the No. 1 hit "Los Inmigrantes."
In the 12 years since it was founded in Mazatlan, Sinoloa, Banda Carnaval has released five albums driven by horn backgrounds and pumped up with the cultural roots of Latin music — all of its tunes promising a good time for listeners. In 2013, Banda Carnaval went on tour with fellow Latin band, Calibre 50, and they blazed the audiences worldwide with their unique brand of refreshing Latin flavor, wowing attendees with a show they won't soon forget. Las Vueltas de la Vida, the group’s most recent release, was nominated for a 2013 Latin Grammy Award for the Best Album award. The album's single, "Y Te Vas," reached No. 1 spot on the Latin Regional Mexican Airplay chart. Banda Carnival has remained proud and true to its foundations, with its mariachi-inspired tunes that reflect the lush landscapes of Mexico, regardless of the trends followed by their other musical contemporaries. In the end, this is just the ticket for an audience that appreciates music that is rich in cultural history, as well as energizing, upbeat sound.Buy Tickets
