The Legendary El Haragan Returns To U.S. On Tour To Celebrate 27 Years Of Musical Career

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Luis Alvarez "El Haragán", one of the most popular and influential musicians and singers in Mexican rock history, announced the return of El Haragán y Compañía to the US to present his "Revolution 27" tour kicking off on Thursday, April 13 in San Diego, California and concluding in New York on April 27.

It's already been 27 years of artistic history for Luis "El Haragán": singer, composer, founder and leader of the rock band El Haragán y Compañía, one of the groups with enormous convocation in their live performances, history and influence despite their lack of support by the mass media. Contrary to the group's name, El Haragán is a band that keeps busy throughout the year with tours in Latin America, various countries in Europe and the United State, as well as composing new material in their studio for upcoming recordings.

El Haragán's nickname was given to Álvarez for a song of authorship with the same name in 1987. After interpreting it in a festival called Encuentro de Compositores del Estado de México (Encounter of Composers of the State of Mexico), the announcer of the event confused the author's name and the song title, presenting "El Haragán" with the song: "Luis Álvarez". Over time, the nickname became engraved in the public's memory and more and more known until it was converted to El Haragan y Compañía as the official name of the group in 1989.

Out of the depths of Mexico City popular neighborhoods, El Haragán is today an emblematic band and is perhaps mostly known for his lyrics that reflect his own emotional and cultural reality of those neighborhoods and of a country like Mexico with its political, social and economic ups and downs. Some have named him a social portraitist for the narrative of his songs and in his concerts has that personal and full identification between his rock n roll family, how he calls his audience, and El Haragán.

The group's style contains a great diversity of rhythms and musical ideas, where one can find hints of Blues, Funk, Reggae, Heavy Metal, Punk, Classic Rock and Latin Rhythms. The band has 11 studio album recordings, 3 live albums, 2 compilations and a single that has accumulated 7 million copies in sales, of which about 20 million have been of the red album Valedores Juveniles. They have received diverse and great awards, recognitions, and have participated in film soundtracks. The band has had the experience of having stepped on all sorts of stages: from the modest and smallest, to the largest and most recognized in Mexican, European and American territory.

El Haragán y Compañía will kick off their USA tour this week where hits such as "Mi Muñequita Sintética", "Él No Lo Mató", "En El Corazón No Hay Nada", "No Estoy Muerto" and "Bajando en la Esquina", tracks that are already part of the Mexican National Rock classic songs, will be part
