BIO El Fantasma
El Fantasma (The Ghost) is the stage name for Mexican regional singer and songwriter Alexander Garcia, also affectionately known in Mexican media circles as “The King of the Underground.” The reasons for the lack of transparency around his identity are numerous and are difficult to sort from fact, but none have kept him from becoming a charting recording artist for the Afinarte label. Garcia has been interested in music since he was a teen. He dropped his first single, “Mi 45,” in early 2016. Its video garnered over ten million views. His debut album, Equipo Armado, ran up the Mexican airplay charts. He wasted no time, issuing three more albums during the calendar year: En Vivo Desde Badiraguato, Pa’ los Recuerdos, Vol. 1, and Vengo a Aclarar. A live version of the latter, Vengo a Aclarar (En Vivo), followed the next year. The live version rekindled interest in the studio album, which landed at number ten on the Hot Latin Albums chart during August of 2017.

BIO Voz de Mando
Voz de Mando is a regional Mexican group from Los Angeles, California, that broke through to mainstream success with the hit single “Comandos del M.P. (500 Balazos)” in 2010. Founded in 2009 and originally hailing from Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, the group is based in Huntington Park, a city in Los Angeles County. Bandmembers include brothers Jorge Gaxiola (accordion, vocals) and Miguel Gaxiola (bajo sexto, vocals), plus Domingo Bolaños “El Mingo” (tuba), and Carlos Sígala “Charly” (drums). Voz de Mando initially made a name for themselves with the self-released albums Levantando la Voz (2009) and 12 Impactos de Alto Calibre (2009). Upon signing a recording contract with Disa Records, they made their major-label album debut with Con la Nueva Federacion (2010). One of several songs on the album written by Gaxiola brother Miguel, the album’s lead single, the corrido “Comandos del M.P. (500 Balazos),” was a breakout hit for the group, reaching the Top Ten of the Billboard Regional Mexican Songs chart. After touring Mexico, Latin America, and the United States, Voz de Mando returned with the pre-release single “Soldado Latinoamericano” (whose poignant message was directed squarely at Donald Trump), which was followed by the full-length Clase de Historia in March. A year later, the band issued El Que a Ti Te Gusta.

BIO Virlan Garcia
Virlan Garcia is a singer, guitarist, and composer in the Mexican regional genre, specializing in norteño, corridos, and bandas. Garcia comes from Sinaloa and he has written for a number of artists, including Gerardo Ortiz, who chose his “Fuego Cruzado” to open his smash Hoy Más Fuerte album. Garcia’s own music follows the sierreño (trio) format. He plays rhythm guitar and is accompanied by Carlos Gomez on 12-string (lead) guitar and Edgar Salazar on tuba. His debut single, “Que Ya Estas Harta,” was issued digitally in the spring of 2015 and landed on various regional Mexican song charts. He placed several songs on year-end “best corridos” compilations from a variety of labels. In February of the following year, he independently (and unusually) released two full-length albums, Pobre o Criminal, which included the oft-covered single “Quién Te Entiende,” and Yi Cambio Mi Suerte, featuring the popular YouTube video single “Ivan Archivaldo.”

BIO El Potro De Sinaloa
El Potro de Sinaloa was born José Eulogio Hernandez in San Francisco Sindicatura la Tapias, Sinaloa. José showed great musical promise from an early age, growing up in a household full of musicians, professionals and hobbyists alike. His brother Ignacio “Nacho” Hernandez played with Los Amables del Norte, and offered an apprenticeship of sorts by inviting José to play and record with the group. Another brother, Tomas, known as El Indomable de Sinaloa, enjoyed a short but fruitful career as a recording artist. Surrounded by a talented family, José soon began to distinguish himself as particularly gifted. Performing under the name El Potro de Sinaloa (The Colt of Sinaloa), José soon gained popularity and recognition throughout the region. Known for his unique voice and romantic style, El Potro became an easily recognizable favorite among female listeners stretching from Durango to Jalisco. His debut record, made in collaboration with the musicians of Los Potrillos del Norte and released by Amable Records, was entitled Linda Joven. Subsequent recordings would continue to feature El Potro working with established groups, such as Los Caballeros, Los Guamuchilenos, and his brother’s Los Amables del Norte rather than forming his own band. With a few successful releases to his credit, José signed to Sony International for the production of his 1996 release, Punales de Fuego. After a brief stint with EMI, Hernandez soon settled on Lideres, a subsidiary of Universal, as his label home. With them he released what would be a career highlight, Pobre de Mi Corazon, positioned as one of the year’s best in Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. Though his 2007 release, No Me Quites Tu Amor, was not under Lideres, his contract with Machete Music keeps him under the Universal umbrella.

BIO Banda Los Sebastianes
Though Banda Los Sebastianes has become a mainstay of Sinaloa’s banda popular scene since 2014, few outside the world of Mexican Regional Music know that the Mazatlán group has been recording and touring together since 2004. This large, ever-evolving large band came together under the direction of composer, singer, and songwriter Armando Paul Celis. He assembled the group from a large cast of top-flight veteran musicians from other acts who all shared the desire to inject new energy into the banda movement. Due to that modus operandi, personnel has shifted almost constantly.
After rehearsing and playing a few gigs, Banda Los Sebastianes cut their independent debut, Que Hago Yo, to sell through local shops and at shows. They played anywhere and everywhere they could, opening for other touring acts in and around Mazatlán as well as weddings and festivals. They followed it in 2007 with No Te Olvido Yo. It included two locally popular singles — now considered among their greatest hits — “A Ese Ladrón” and “El Mmm.” Radio airplay increased and they began to play shows outside Sinaloa. In order to keep fresh material in front of the public, Banda Los Sebastianes issued a series of digital and YouTube singles including “En la Cima del Cielo,” “Estoy Sangrando Tu Amor,” and “Un Loco.” 2010’s full-length Corridos Adictivos widened their reputation nationally and garnered interest from radio and the internet from the Southwestern United States.
