Gruperas Que Hicieron Historia
Released: May 2011
Los Primos, one of duranguense's most successful acts (particularly considering they're not from Chicago, where the genre was cultivated), have a slightly different take on their genre. Focusing on the big hits of the rural folk-rock of grupera, they avoid the strip-mall synths of much of duranguense, instead cultivating a vocal sweetness, an easygoing vibe and some serious sax action. The menacingly saccharine "Adolescente y Bonita" and dubby pep of "La Coloreteada" are highlights.
