One could say that Los Tigres del Norte is one of Mexico’s most valuable musical exports. The band comprises Sinaloa-born musicians Jorge Hernandez and his brothers and cousins, Hernan Hernandez, Eduardo Hernandez, Luis Hernandez, and Oscar Lara. The band moved to San Jose and began recording music. They were later sponsored by Dsicos Fama, a record company owned by Art Walker. At the beginning of their career, Los Tigres found acclaim in their community. Gaining local fame, the sensational group decided to cover a song titled “Contrabando y tradición” (Contraband and Betrayal). The song, written about two lovers who happen to be drug runners, became an instant hit. The story of “Contrabando y tradición” later inspired numerous films and became a staple among Spanish music listeners.
Los Tigres are not just about delivering regional music to their listeners. The group focused heavily on messages delivered through their lyrics. Many of their themes include real-life scenarios like love, politics, and struggling to survive. In fact, Los Tigres’ music is so impactful that some songs have been banned in Mexico. For example, their single, “Los Voz del Pueblo (The Voice of the People),” speaks of issues affecting the Latin community, such as gun violence, cash bail, and immigration.
Since emerging in 1968, Los Tigres del Norte has released 50 studio albums, including their latest effort, La Reunión. The group’s phenomenal success has resulted in over 40 million albums sold worldwide and numerous accolades. The band’s five-decade career has resulted in seven Grammy Awards and six Latin Grammy Awards. In fact, they are the only Mexican group to gain such achievement. The band received their first Grammy nomination in 1987 when their album El Otro Mexico was nominated for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album. The following year, their follow-up record, Gracias!…America…Sin Fronteras won the award. Meanwhile, Los Tigres is also the first band in history to gain a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Apart from music, Los Tigres has also released 40 films. Their latest film, Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison, is a documentary film that shows behind-the-scenes footage from their concert in Folson State Prison in Mexico. Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison was released through Netflix in 2019.
