Los Tigres Del Norte
Los Tigres del Norte, one of Mexico’s biggest and longest running bands, will perform at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 10. Formed in 1967, Los Tigres Del Norte have released dozens of albums, sold millions of records and toured worldwide.Originally from Sinaloa, Mexico, and long based in the California city of San Jose, Los Tigres del Norte was formed in the late 1960s. The group, often hailed as the godfathers of norteño, has been described as “Los Idolos del Pueblo” (“Idols of the People”). Its songs (or corridos) tell simple but vivid stories that often focus on current events, be it the still-unsolved murders of hundreds of women in Juarez, “Las Mujeres de Juarez” (“Women of Juarez”); border issues, “El Muro” (“The Wall”); drug-trafficking, “Contrabando y Traición” (“Contraband and Beytrayal”); and the lives of undocumented Mexican workers in the U.S., “Jaula de Oro” (“Golden Cage”).
