New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Norteño at the Bowl! on September 15 will feature Los Tigres del Norte headlining the Hollywood Bowl's first-ever concert dedicated to Northern Mexico's música norteña. Los Tigres del Norte will perform with orchestra, including all-star musicians from the LA Phil's Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), conducted by Juan Felipe Molano. Joining the bill are Los Cachorros de Juan Villarreal and Los Cadetes de Linares. The performance will be a celebration of Mexican Independence Day.

Los Tigres del Norte - who originated in Rosa Morada, Mocorito, Sinaloa, Mexico, and moved to San Jose, CA in the late 1960s - are known for their pioneering socio-political ballads, or corridos. The seven-time Grammy-winning group is recognized for turning norteño into an internationally known genre by modernizing the conjunto norteño form - which features accordion, bajo sexto, saxophone, bass and drums - and infusing it with bolero, cumbia, rock rhythms, and waltzes. Los Tigres del Norte is comprised of Jorge Hernández (director, lead vocals), Hernan Hernández (electric bass, vocals), Eduardo Hernández (accordion, saxophone, bajo sexto, vocals), Luis Hernández (bajo sexto, vocals), and Óscar Lara (drums).

Norteño music developed in the early 1900s as the polkas of German and Czech migrant workers mixed with the ballads (corridos) and rancheras of Mexicans in the north of the country. While you can still hear remnants of that early music in modern norteño's accordion-driven sound and emotionally driven stories, today's stars like Los Tigres del Norte incorporate thumping rock-inspired rhythms and flashy brass, a modern evolution of a historically rooted music.
