Two-time Grammy Award winners Mariachi Los Camperos was created in 1961 by Natividad "Nati" Cano. Mr. Cano played a fundamental role in the development of mariachi music in the United States by training and mentoring new generations of musicians. This giant of the genre was a visionary leader who wanted to take the mariachi performance out of customary locations such as Cantinas and into concert halls where celebrities performed.
Nati Cano fulfilled his dream by presenting Los Camperos and performing at multiple theaters, opera houses, concert halls, and casinos where mariachis had never previously performed, including New York's Carnegie Hall and Washington DC's Lincoln Theater, among many others.
Nati Cano passed away in 2014 and left the leadership of Mariachi Los Camperos to Jesus "Chuy" Guzman, who has served as the musical director since 1992 after serving as Cano's right-hand man for nearly three decades. Under Guzman's direction, Los Camperos released a 2015 Grammy-nominated musical tribute to Nati Cano called Tradición, Arte, y Pasión, giving Mariachi Los Camperos their fourth Grammy nominations. In January of 2018, Mariachi Los Camperos became the featured Mariachi act in the First Mariachi Opera "Cruzar la Cara de la Luna," making their first presentation in New York City.
