About the Artist

Los Tigres del Norte, winners of multiple GRAMMY® awards, bring a creative social force to the Regional Mexican genre with their strong and eminent voices. This group is known for being highly influential within their music field. "La Granja," is the title of their most recent production, which comes out in stores September 8th.

The Deluxe version of "La Granja" will also be available simultaneously, it includes a total of 14 tracks on the CD and a DVD that consists of a picture gallery, a behind the scenes look at the video "La Granja," behind the scenes of their most recent photo shoot, and four videos of their biggest hits: "Jefe de Jefes," "La Reina del Sur," "El Triunfo," and "De Paisano a Paisano."

"Si la perra está amarrada aunque ladre todo día, no la deben de soltar mi abuelito me decía, que podrían arrepentirse los que no la conocían," is the first phrase you hear off the new single "La Granja."

The song "La Granja" was written by well known composer Teodoro Bello. Teodoro, alongside Los Tigres del Norte, created a new single that is more than just a song, it is an original and controversial story that narrates real life events.

Some of the tracks included in the album are: "La Granja", "Mi Curiosidad", "Reina de Reinas", "Sala de Espera", "Como la vida sin Futbol", "Los Aguaceros de Mayo", "Minita de Oro". "Mi negocio está seguro", "El Emigrante", "Quien te entiende" and "El Diputado." In the Deluxe version you can also find two bonus tracks: "Que Voy Hacer Sin Ti" and "Inyección Letal".

With a musical path that embraces a very successful career, Los Tigres del Norte, are known worldwide as `the voice of the people,' they describe this album "La Granja" to be based on genuine life events.

In this new production they precisely hold up to their title as the theme of the songs do just that, speak for the people. The subject matter of the album addresses day to day social problems immigrants face throughout their lifetime, having the songs represent the millions of people that publicly don't have the opportunity to protest and express these everyday tribulations they face and live with.

Los Tigres del Norte are truly one of a kind and with every CD they release they show us, why they are and always will be known as `LOS IDOLOS DEL PUEBLO.' Previous productions:

"Tu Noche con...Los Tigres del Norte"

For the first time in the musical trajectory of Los Tigres del Norte, they are releasing a full length album of totally live performances, which includes 13 of the greatest hits by "Los Jefes de Jefes".

Always grateful to their thousands of faithful followers, this record was made with them in mind and it is dedicated to several countries where they have performed, such as: Mexico, the United States of America, Spain, Central America and South America since they owe their success to millions of people in those countries who have followed them and who continue to support their music.

Although the `Idols of Idols' have thousands of hits, the songs in "Tu Noche Con...Los Tigres del Norte" were carefully selected, taking into consideration the fans' favorites and those most requested at their concerts. This spectacular production is without a doubt a true musical jewel that should not be missing from any collection. Throughout their musical repertory, this record shows the great tradition and culture of Latin America in the original music of Los Tigres del Norte. Borders are knocked down and thousands of fans are brought together by the same musical vision.

"Tu Noche Con...Los Tigres del Norte", has an immense musical vibration that is not only Mexican but its great variety of energy from Latin America makes it different and this is felt and is transmitted when listening to each one of the songs in this production.

This collection of live hits contains sufficient musical variety to satisfy all tastes. With its traditional "corridos", "rancheras", ballads and northern-style "cumbias", a perfect combination is attained so that this record will be one more hit for the `Jefes de Jefes'.

"Raíces"

"Raíces" (Roots), as the name implies, is an album with a musical repertoire that exposes the great traditions and roots of Mexico, its people, its customs, its pride, its musical "mestizaje" (mixture) and it also carries us to the cultural roots of Los Tigres del Norte. Once more, the `Jefes de Jefes' were nominated for the coveted GRAMMY Latino®.

Armento Fierro).

Throughout the repertoire of songs that have been great Mexican musical hits, written by important songwriters such as: José Alfredo Jiménez, Pepe Guizar, to mention just a few, `Los Jefes de Jefes' offer them to their public as an tribute.

In their musical production at the beginning of 2008, "Detalles y Emociones" (Details and Emotions) they were once again presented the maximum musical award in the United States: the GRAMMY®.

"Detalles y Emociones" was successful and conquered radio waves with the first single promoted entitled "Detalles" (Details) (by the songwriter Nacho Hernández) and it reached No. 1 on the "Regional Mexican Airplay" chart. As far as sales are concerned, the album reached the No. 1 position in "Regional Mexican Albums" and No. 2 in "Top Latin Albums" as indicated on the charts of the prestigious Billboard magazine.

América Sin Fronteras" (Thank you! America Without Borders".)

In "Historias Que Contar" (Stories to Tell), `Los Jefes de Jefes' continued narrating their journey through the musical world, as real spokesmen for the people. This was done in 14 musical stories written by prominent composers, who were able to bring life to the musical message of Los Tigres del Norte. In each song, Los Tigres del Norte narrate a story that not only explores the emotions of its people -- love, loss, cheating, or treachery, but they also present the consequences of an irreconcilable past.

Musically speaking, "Historias Que Contar" (Stories to Tell) presented a good dose of classical "corridos", "rancheras", "cumbias" and ballads such as: "Señor Locutor" (Mr. Newscaster), "Al Estilo Mexicano" (Mexican Style), "Regalo Caro" (Expensive Gift), "Ingratitud" (Ungratefulness), "Tu Decides" (You Decide), "El Vestido (The Dress), "Una Herida de Amor" (A Wound of Love), "Le Compré La Muerte A Mi Hijo" (I Bought My Son's Death), "Falso Amor" (False Love), "No Diet" (No Diet), "Me Haces Falta" (I Need You), "Que Te Parece" (What Do You Think About That?), "Libidinosamente" (Lustfully), "El Zacatecas" (The One From Zacatecas) and a `bonus track' of "Que Te Parece" for use with karaoke.

As authentic symbolic figures of people's sentiment, in the middle of their arduous promotion of the record and with success in the palm of their hand, Los Tigres del Norte not only narrated stories but they also became real participants. They made history when they came together with their fans in the Summer of 2006 in an important event supporting `The Great American Boycott' (A Day Without Immigrants) where in more than 200 cities around the country immigrants came together and were absent from work or from their normal routines to demonstrate the economic and labor power of immigrants.

Transition into the 21st Century... the events preceding it ...

Transition into the 21st century, impressively opened doors for Los Tigres del Norte. They expanded internationally and had a wide range of fans from different generations.

In 2001, Los Tigres del Norte were honored by the best Mexican rock bands who demonstrated their respect and admiration for them and their influence on their own music. Each band or soloist participated by recording their favorite song for a collector's album entitled "El Más Grande Homenaje A Los Tigres Del Norte"(2001) (The Greatest Tribute to Los Tigres del Norte), thus recognizing the most important "norteño" group in Mexico and in the United States. The special participation of Los Tigres Del Norte as honored guests at the XXX International Cervantino Festival (2002) in Guanajuato, Mexico, was a transcendental event. They were the first "Norteña" musical group invited to this magnificent cultural event, where they were paid tribute by groups that were most representative of Mexican rock: Molotov, La Barranca and Julieta Venegas, in addition it also helped elevate recognition by young Mexicans.

2002 was a key year for Los Tigres Del Norte when they were awarded the title of Mexican Cultural Ambassadors for the album "La Reina del Sur", thanks to the famous author Arturo Pérez-Reverte, who wrote the novel with the same title, inspired by the couple in the famous "corrido" entitled "Contrabando y Traición" (Contraband and Treachery).

Spain opened its doors to this production where the group made important presentations in festivals and events in 2002 and 2003. These tours allowed Los Tigres Del Norte to win the recognition of Spanish fans as well as that of the media and personalities from the intellectual and artistic world in that country.

These events reaffirmed the group's internationalization. Public performances by the group were added in 2003 and it must be mentioned that they also gave performances to American troops in Japan and Korea, on a tour that took them through Asia and Hawaii.

In 2004, the group further advanced in its internationalization project. Los Tigres Del Norte achieved globalization by visiting the South American continent, presenting impressive concerts in Chile and Colombia. In addition to having held a concert as a fundamental part of the closing ceremony of the `First Universal Forum of the Cultures' in 2004, in Barcelona, Spain.

Before their internationalization, the need to create a record series that recounts the legacy of Los Tigres del Norte was of great importance and for that reason Fonovisa Records had the task of releasing the historical series entitled "Musical Inheritance" in the CD/DVD format. This collection containing several albums has been released periodically with songs in different musical genres, thus bringing together the group's musical legacy.

All CD's in the series are accompanied by a special DVD that includes videos, a photo gallery, a biography and some new songs. To date, the following albums have been released within the `Herencia Musical' series which have had high sales and, for that reason, they have been included in sales charts of the well-known Billboard magazine and they are: "20 Corridos Inolvidables" (20 Unforgettable "Corridos") (2003), "20 Boleros Románticos" (20 Romantic "Boleros") (2003) and "20 Norteñas Famosas" (20 Famous "Norteña" Songs) (2004), "Cumbias y Algo Más" ("Cumbias" and Something More") (2005) and "Herencia Musical...20 Corridos Prohibidos" (Musical Inheritance ... 20 Prohibited "Corridos") which reached the number 1 position in sales within the `Regional Mexican Albums' chart for Billboard magazine.

In addition to the success of record collections and albums by Los Tigres del Norte, Fonovisa Records recognized the importance of emphasizing the group's film history by releasing some of their movies which continue to leave an important mark on the group's professional career and which form a part of Mexico's film patrimony. They were released in a CD/DVD combo format accompanied by a CD with music and they were directed by the renowned director, Rubén Galindo, who is one of the most important Mexican filmmakers within the genre known as `Border Film', which especially and precisely refers the border between the two countries, pointing out different economic levels and traditional cultural differences.

The first tape that was released on the market was "La Banda Del Carro Rojo" (The Band in the Red Car) (2006), a movie that was originally filmed in 1976 and which remained for two consecutive weeks in the No. 1 position in sales in the United States according to Billboard magazine's `Regional Mexican Albums' chart.

"La Muerte Del Soplón" (The Death of the Snitch) (2006) followed which was made in 1977 and which was also an overwhelming success. The enormous success of that genre of movies was also tied to the enormous success of `corridos' performed by the Tigres del Norte. This was greatly due to the public's feelings concerning illegal immigration and the fact that the stories on the big screen were similar to real-life stories that they had seen or experienced.

At the end of 2006, Los Tigres del Norte once more proved their success in the United States, and their productions placed within the Top 20 sales chart in the same week: the movie in a CD/DVD format, "La Banda del Carro Rojo", the album "Historias Que Contar" and the "20 Norteñas Famosas" (20 Famous "Norteña" Songs) combo.

Due to their enormous value within the Mexican Regional genre, Los Tigres del Norte were special guests who participated in a round table during the first conference carried out by Billboard magazine, the Regional Mexican Music Summit Q&A, which was held in Beverly Hills, California.

Background:

The professional trajectory of Los Tigres Del Norte may be synthesized in the following manner: `the voice of the people', `transcending from generation to generation' and worldwide success. With great success, `Los Jefes de Jefes' have made the "corrido" tradition theirs (stories that celebrate the search for truth, justice, opportunity) turning it into a powerful tool for expressing not only the suffering and tribulations of those who arrive from different countries to the United States in search of a better future for their families, but also for overcoming obstacles faced daily in another country.

The group has taken "Norteña" music with its polka roots and they mix it with true stories of social injustice and news as `modern minstrels'. Thanks to the rich content of their lyrics, which reveal the people's history, they have made millions of people see their own reflection in them; the reflection of their past, their present and their future. For that and much more, the group has won the name of `Los Idolos Del Pueblo' (The People's Idols), a nickname that was affectionately awarded by their fans due to their sincerity and humility.

Their trajectory of more than three decades, millions of records sold, extensive tours around the United States, Mexico, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, have turned Los Tigres Del Norte into true international legends. Los Tigres Del Norte began their artistic journey at the hands of their musical director, main vocalist and accordion player, Jorge Hernández, who together with his brothers Hernán, Eduardo, Luis and his cousin, Oscar Lara, started out on a trek together and they have reached unimaginable heights.

From the beginning, the artistic career of Los Tigres Del Norte was cemented on a solid foundation of principles and values that were tied to Mexican culture, honor, pride and respect.

In 1968, the brothers had to leave their birthplace, Rosa Morada, Mocorito, Sinaloa, Mexico and they set out on a road to the United States with the hope of helping their family. One day, after playing in the border town of Mexicali, they were contracted to play at the `Independence Day' parade in San José, California. At that time, the group did not have a name and it was an immigration officer who called them "Little Tigers" and as they traveled towards the north, they finished the phrase with the expression of "The Tigers of the North", "Los Tigres del Norte". That was how the group's name originated. The group established itself in San José, California, to date, that city is still their place of residence. In the 70s, Los Tigres del Norte signed their first record contract in that city with a novel company known as Fama Records, a label which over the years became the most important one on the West Coast.

Los Tigres del Norte were the first artists that Art Walker got to sign with Fama Records. Art was a well known businessman who listened to the group on the radio during a local presentation in the Parque Las Flores, on Keyes Street, where the Mexican community in the City of San José used to gather. In the beginning of their artistic stage with that company, it was suggested that Los Tigres del Norte change their traditional sound to a more contemporary one by incorporating electric instruments. In that era, the group recorded its first album in San José, California.

Over time, the group modernized its sound, varying its style with different genre such as "boleros", "cumbias", rock and waltz rhythms. The tradition of `social consciousness' was born in Los Tigres del Norte in their first songs, "Contrabando y Traición" (Contraband and Treason), a story about the love and treason of the famous couple of Emilio Varela and Camelia La Tejana (1971). "La Banda Del Carro Rojo" (The Band in the Red Car) (1973), with time took the form of that traditional music with social content in their lyrics, resulting in great hits such as "La Jaula De Oro" (Golden Cage) (1986) and the classic "De Paisano A Paisano" (From Compatriot to Compatriot) (2000) among many others. As part of their musical mission, the group decided not to allow their image to be poorly displayed. They refused to use firearms in their photographs or to use uncouth language in the lyrics of their songs. In addition, the group has always respected women, treating them with respect in their music and they do not glorify `drug' topics. They simply tell a story.
