“Watching this magnificent mariachi band play with a power and passion that I’d never seen before. It was Amazing.”

Two-time Grammy Award winner, Mariachi Los Camperos originated in 1961 by Natividad “Nati” Cano. Mr. Cano played a fundamental role in the development of mariachi music in the United States by training and mentoring new generations of mariachi musicians. The Mariachi “Giant” was a visionary leader that wanted to take the mariachi performance out of customary locations such as Cantinas and into concert halls where celebrities performed.
Nati Cano fulfilled his dream by presenting Los Camperos and performing at various casinos and other places where mariachis had never previously performed. Performances took place in New York’s Carnegie Hall, Washington DC’s Lincoln Theater and many theaters alike.
In 1969, Mr. Cano opened the first ever Mariachi Dine and Show at “La Fonda Casa de Los Camperos” now known as a Landmark in Los Angeles, California. Today, mariachi restaurants all over the world are modeled after La Fonda.
Nati Cano passed away in 2014 and left Mariachi Los Camperos in good hands, having passed the leadership baton to Jesus “Chuy” Guzman whom has served as the musical director since 1992. “Chuy” Guzman was Cano’s right-hand man for nearly three decades. Under Guzman’s direction, Los Camperos released a 2015 Grammy-nominated musical tribute to Nati Cano called: Tradición, Arte, y Pasión, this album gave Mariachi Los Camperos their 4th Grammy nominations. Determined for a Grammy Award, Mariachi Los Camperos Release “De Ayer Para Siempre” on August 22nd 2019, and granted their 5th Grammy Nomination. Once at the 62nd Grammy Award Celebration, Mariarachi Los Camperos got the Win for Best Regional Mexican Music Album giving them a 3rd Grammy Award.
