Hailing from Baja California, Mexico, Los Tucanes De Tijuana has made it a mission to deliver iconic Norteño staples. The band, comprising acclaimed musicians Mario Quintero Lara, Joel Higuera, Mario Merno, and well-respected Sinaloan artist David Servin Raya, came together in 1983 with the objective of performing regional Mexican music that audiences would love dancing to. Four years later, the band moved to Los Angeles and became a staple in the Latin club scene. While relentlessly performing in local destinations, Los Tucanes De Tijuana also consistently recorded their music. In 1994, the band finally dropped their debut album, titled Me Robaste el Corazon. The effort received wide critical acclaim from listeners. Soon, they also dropped their sophomore album, Clave Nueva, followed by Mundo de Amor, the highly-acclaimed third effort.
Two years after releasing the debut album, Los Tucanes De Tijuana started entering Billboard’s Latin charts. In 1996, the band had several entries on the Top Latin Albums. Meanwhile, Mario Quintero Lara, the band’s leader and primary songwriter, began gaining prestigious recognition for his work. He won four BKI Awards for writing the iconic singles “Es Verdad.” “El Tucanazo,” Hacemos bonita pareja,” and “Secuestro de amor.” These songs also conquered the airwaves across the Latin Music scene and have become a beloved staple among listeners. Moreover, Quintero was also nominated for Composer of the Year alongside famed Latin music titans, such as Robi Draco, Shakira, and more. By the 2000s, the band had earned their first Latin Grammy nomination when their album Al Por Mayor received a nod for Best Norteño Album.
