  • The Basics

    Calling Los Tigres del Norte the norteño equivalent of Bruce Springsteen might sound odd at first, but it’s true on many levels. These Sinaloan superstars of Tex-Mex border music embody and transcend norteño at the same time — the long-lived family band has become bigger than any genre tag. And like the Boss, they became famous for singing about the ways of the workingman, as well as the dark underbelly of their world’s street life — their big breakthrough hit, after all, was “Contrabando y Traicion,” a corrido (story song) about a ruthless female drug smuggler. Even if you don’t understand Spanish, the sounds of sirens and an automobile spinning out on “La Banda del Carro Rojo” let you know you’re listening to songs of the street. But the heart-melting ballad “Golpes en el Corazon” shows another side beneath Los Tigres’ tough exterior.

    The fact that Los Tigres del Norte are all related means more than everyone showing up at the same place for Christmas dinner — during their long reign, they’ve developed a sound that could only have come out of close-knit family ties. Just listen to the way their voices blend together on “Los Amigos,” in which every line is sung in flawless harmony, the Hernandezes shadowing each other phrase for phrase. “Rumbo al Sur” shows off the signature sound Los Tigres’ sax and accordion achieve together, entwining around riffs that make them sound like a single instrument. And unlike most groups, where the rhythm section lurks in the background, the band’s bass and drums leap right out into the spotlight on tracks like “El Niño y la Boda,” having their own say while pushing the action along.

    Don’t let the name fool you – Los Tigres del Norte have never been stuck in just one style. These masters of norteño know their way around plenty of other sounds too. Over the years, they’ve shown a special knack for the broken-waltz-time feel of mariachi ballads, like “Ramiro Sierra” and the regal “El Rey.” And when they set their sights on a pop-tinged ballad, they hit the target every time – just try not to get carried away by the tear-tugging croon that turns matters of the heart into a feast for your ears on “Infiel por Amor.”

    If you’ve got only a single norteño album in your collection, odds are it’s by Los Tigres del Norte, but these Tex-Mex veterans are the go-to group for Mexican music maniacs too. The fact is, while they’ve dipped into everything from cumbia to mariachi and more, no other act is so synonymous with norteño. The Hernandez family — along with drumming cousin Oscar Lara — has been at it since the late ’60s, and over the decades they’ve earned a tall stack of Latin GRAMMY® Awards and other honors, while watching their album sales climb into the mega-millions. In that time, they’ve unleashed a staggering amount of music, but from their countless norteño classics to their sojourns into other styles, you’ll find all the greatest growls of Los Tigres del Norte gathered right here.
