About Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano

Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano are a Grammy award-winning group who has shared the tradition of Mexican mariachi music with audiences throughout the world.

What is Mariachi?
Mariachi is a genre of music originating in Mexico. The word "mariachi" can also be used to describe the ensemble playing the music.

Mariachi bands are made up of musicians playing the violin, trumpet, guitar, vihuela and guitarron. There can be as many as eight violinists and two trumpets in one ensemble. Some ensembles also include the harp.

Who is Nati Cano?
Natividad "Nati" Cano is a leader in mirroring and shaping the history of mariachi music. Born in 1933 in Ahulsculco, Jalisco, his early career took him first to nearby Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city, and then further away to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, he and his group, Los Camperos, emerged as a major driving force of the mariachi music tradition.

Nati's life goal has been to bring a greater acceptance, understanding, and respect to the mariachi tradition as a whole, and to reach the widest possible audience with his music.
