BiographyFormed in 1999 by Oscar Urbina (and heavily loaded with Urbina family members), this leading Duranguense group got its start playing in Chicago, Ill. Alacranes Musical's sound has one foot in the past -- the sound hearkens back to tamborazo zacatecano, a style popular during the Mexican revolution -- while the instrumentation (electric bass, brass and synthesizers) has its foot firmly planted in the present. Part of the original flowering of Duranguense in Chicago, the group was catapulted to stardom in 2004 with the release of A Cambio De Que. A run of chart-topping singles and awards followed; the group now plays alongside the biggest names in regional Mexican music.
