ABOUT THEM:

Los Cuates De Sinaloa was formed by cousins Gabriel and Martiniano Berrelleza after they trekked from their home town of La Vainilla, Sinaloa in Mexico (at age 14 and with the blessing of their mothers) to Phoenix, Arizona in the USA. From here they formerly put their band together after having their instruments being gifted to them by locals and played local bars & venues. They worked their way up through the ranks of the local live scene and got themselves a manager who got them gigs on the regional touring scene over a five year period. During that time they released a number of independent releases and were then signed by Sony/BMG in 2006.

Their Narcocorrido music performance style (which includes ballads with themes about criminal notoriety, the Mexican underworld, drug lords and their drug cartels) made them perfect for the media opportunity that came next.

In 2009, the band appeared on the US TV series Breaking Bad which took them to an international audience after they performed the track 'Negro y Azul' written by Pepe Garza. In recent times the band has expanded its members to include El Gordo y Beto and Barrelleza nephews Gabriel and Nano Berrelleza and continue to record and perform today.
