About the Artist:
The two-time Grammy Award–winning ensemble Mariachi Los Camperos was founded in 1961 by Natividad “Nati” Cano (1933–2014). He was a giant in the field of mariachi music: he played a fundamental role in its development in the United States and was the first to take mariachi out of cantinas and into concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and other prestigious venues. Jesus “Chuy” Guzman, who worked alongside Cano as his right-hand man for three decades, has led the group since Cano’s death. The group has recorded 12 albums, winning Grammy Awards for cELLAbration!, A Tribute to Ella Jenkins (Best Musical Album for Children) and for Amor, dolor y lagrimas (Best Regional Mexican Album). The group received a Grammy nomination for ¡Llegaron Los Camperos! and, under Guzman’s direction, Los Camperos released a 2015 musical tribute to Nati Cano titled Tradición, arte, y pasión, which also garnered a Grammy nomination. Other honors include the Silvestre Vargas Award for Artistic Excellence, the Galardon Mariachi Guadalajara, and a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. The aims of Mariachi Los Camperos are to preserve the richness of their music and culture, to pass along the mariachi traditions, and to continue to influence new generations of mariachi musicians throughout the world.
