Los Temerarios‘ bubblegum ranchera was the romantic soundtrack of millions of Mexican and Mexican-American youths’ lives during the ’90s.
Combining elements of traditional Mexican ranchera music with keyboards, electric bass, and stately percussion, they created a sound whose appeal frequently took them to the top tier of Billboard’s Latin charts. Brothers Adolfo (b. 1963) and Gustavo Ángel Alba (b. 1968), from Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Mexico, were first exposed to the music business in the late ’70s when their father rented a room in their house to local groups needing a place to rehearse.
The 1991 release Mi Vida Eres Tú (“My Life Is You”) propelled the group to superstardom. The unique sound of the title track, which backed mariachi instrumentation with electric bass and a dramatic crash on each bar’s second beat, became a standard and spawned legions of imitators. Though four singles were released from the album, the material was so consistently strong that radio often played album tracks. The group also ventured into movies, appearing in Sueño y Realidad (Dream and Reality) in 1993. In fall 2000, the band collected an award for Best Grupero Performance for En La Madrugada Se Fue at the first annual Latin Grammy Awards. The album Poemas Canciones y Romance was issued a year later.
