Über La Arrolladora Banda El Limon
More an institution than a band, Banda el Limon was founded in 1965. The group played banda music for over thirty years, primarily in its home state of Sinaloa, before it finally signed to a record label and began releasing recordings in the late 1990s. Once the band laid down tracks, it shot to the top of the regional charts, earning Grammy nominations and awards across the Latin musical spectrum. Through the years, a succession of banda's top vocalists have passed through the group, including Julio Preciado, El Coyote, Jorge Cordero and Nico Flores.
