Carlos y Jose are one of the longest running and most successful groups in traditional norteño music with over 85 albums to their credit. Carlos Salazar (voice and accordion) founded the band in General Teran, Nuevo Leon, though they began their professional career in Camargo, Tamaulipas in 1968. Their first two hits were with the corrido singles "El Nuevo Albur de Amor" and the lament "La Mata de Sandia." These songs were played on the powerful border radio stations that broadcast from Mexico and throughout the southwest and into the midwest, and reached migrant workers and immigrant families who purchased their music en masse. They furthered their success with a string of hits in their homeland such as "Estrellita del Norte al Oriente," "Yo Tambien Soy de Teran," "La Carta Que Te Mande, "Cuentame Tus Penas," "Pistoleros Famosos," and many others. Carlos y Jose toured relentlessly all over Mexico, in and the U.S. in California, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona, developing a loyal following. The group reached superstar status with their international smash "El Chubasco," shattered all Mexican sales records, and spread their fame to Florida, Puerto Rico, and throughout Central and South America. Their songs -- and sometimes the band itself -- have appeared in over 24 films, including Pistoleros Famosos La Coyota, and La Muerte del Palomo, and on Mexican and Puerto Rican television countless times. They have been nominated for numerous Latin Grammys, and won seven Gold and four Platinum recordings. They have also won the Aztec Gold Calendar Yuri award. Their 2013 album, Cabalgando por el Pacífico: En Vivo, is a music and video package that again placed on Billboard's Regional Mexican chart. ~ Thom Jurek
