Riding to popularity by staying near to the pop part of onda grupera, Ladrón (in British, Thief) has discovered itself adored throughout central Mexico as well as the Midwestern U.S., while ironically keeping a minimal profile in its indigenous Monterrey, where norteño reigns supreme. Group movie director and guitarist Sergio Villarreal (b. 1968), who writes almost all the group’s tracks, began penning music at age group 14 and offers written at a prolific speed since, averaging 75 compositions each year. Determined to possess another profession to fall back again on, he graduated executive level and briefly trained mathematics and physics in the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León having a mechanised Regiomontana. At Universidad Regiomontana, Villarreal and three college students formed the rock and roll group Gatos Con Botas (Pet cats With Footwear). The group quickly determined it felt convenient using the softer onda grupera design, and became Ladrón in 1991. Simpleness and softness characterize their result, which consists nearly completely of cumbias and adult modern ballads. Villarreal also integrated harmonies in the clean-cut custom from the Association. With key pad participant Omar García (b. 1969), bass participant Edgar “Gary” García (b. 1970), and drummer William Mejía (b. 1971), the four-man group was the tiniest in a method known for six- to eight-man ensembles. Authorized by Discos Sabinas that same yr, the group discovered an important patron in the famous Mexican composer Armando Manzanero, who created its first recording, Corazón Desvalido (Damaged Center). International achievement found its way to 1992 without Tengo Lágrimas (I DON’T POSSESS Tears), which created five strike singles, a uncommon feat within a genre whose performers average one record each year. Villarreal’s organizing and songwriting abilities weren’t dropped on his co-workers; he spent some time working as arranger for albums by groupings whose design is much not the same as Ladrón’s, including Banda Móvil, Cardenales de Nuevo León and Banda R-15. Furthermore, he has created music for Liberación, Display, and Sonido Mazter, amongst others, stating someday he’d like to be considered a full-time manufacturer and songwriter. Ladrón added two mariachi music to 1994’s Culpable De Tu Amor (Guilty of Your Like) and documented some rapid-fire quebraditas because of its 1998 Compact disc Enamóprice De El Ladrón (Fall DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH a Thief), but hardly ever strayed definately not its trademark intimate sound, which include frequent personal references to its previous music. The 1996 greatest-hits Compact disc 15 Super Temas may be the just U.S. discharge to include music from Corazón Desvalido. Tu Me Quieres Lastimar implemented in 1998; Misma Historia made an appearance three years afterwards.
