Los Tucanes de Tijuana banned in Mexico, played center stage at Coachella gets key to city

By Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat



Los Tucanes de Tijuana Get the Keys to the City of Coachella "for their long history and connection to the city. La Chona blew up thanks to social media and Los Tucanes talk about the importance of the community in Coachella. He answered two  questions and thanked the Mayor for inviting them to be a part of this event."

The Narco Corrido band Los Tucanes de Tijuana was banned in Mexico a decade ago, but was the first band of its type to take center stage at Coachella music festival which began on Friday

The band has been banned since 2008—The ban came after an onstage shoutout  sent  to a capo. 

It happened in the year 2008, when the Tucanes de Tijuana were in the Hipódromo Caliente of Tijuana, Mario Quintero , leader of the group, decided to send a greeting: "A greeting for 'El Teo 'and his compadre' El Muletas'"


Drug traffickers Teodoro García Simental (aka "El Teo" or "El Tres Letras") , and Raydel López Uriarte (aka "El Muletas") , were apprehended by federal authorities in early 2010.

There was no comment about the arrest by Quintero.

Insane, since narco corridos play openly in Mexico and have not had difficulties selling their recordings.  At the time the police chief, Julian Leyzaola, was incensed that the group gave the shout out and banned the group from playing in their hometown and the state of Baja California.




Leyzaola then moved to Juarez to continue his work, and barely survived an assassination attempt that rendered him non-ambulatory destined to spend his life in a wheelchair.

This was the statement from the government at the time of the ban:

"In a time of great violence in this city, where two drug traffickers were the protagonists of the violence, in a presentation of the group Tucanes in 2008 they sent greetings publicly. If they do not change their genre of songs they will not be allowed to sing in this city, "said Luévano Ruiz.

At the same event narco corrido band Los Tigres del Norte was allowed to perform

  1. Interesting how Mexico's government will ban performers and artists who criticize the government.
    Banning corridors while condoning drug traffickers through alliances and associations.
    Such hypocrisy.
    If one pays attention not many artists will bad mouth government. The consequences will be their death of their career.
    Los tigres delivery norte were probably the first to be banned from performing in Mexico for some time.

    2. Even more interesting is how the State of California will give a Key to the City to a band who supports a narco terrorist.

    3. Interesting how the US doesn’t support Mexico one iota when it comes to stopping guns, working to curb demand, and even gives a Mexican hero who served selflessly the finger by giving these selfish “artists” a platform and even ignorantly honoring with keys to city.
      Another first class example of the hypocracy America espouses with their war on drugs and being pro law enforcement. It’s funny how many Americans are deaf, dumb, and illiterate to the hypocracy and corruption of the United States of Anglo Profiteers. Lol! Even watched while their US drugcompanies, FDA, and US doctors created the highest percentage of drug addicts in recorded history of any country in the world. A real “first world country”! Lol

    4. The US is a first world country,
      and it got rich the good old way,
      everything it got, had to be stolen from friend and foe,
      but mostly from the unsuspecting...

  4. I don’t get it, never will enjoy it, but you have to respect it. Rest of the world sells out for bullshit pop music and hip hop is big. Hell, used to be rock and boy bands. Mexico has always had its own unique sound. Lyrics aside, whether corridors or not, it will always make me smile to hear music pumping from a system driving by, and there is no need for the subs, bc instead of base, it’s just horns, acoustic guitar, and freaking accordion. Bravo Mexico, since polls died, you are keeping the accordion alive and the rest of the planets taste in music be damned. I am shocked it hasn’t taken off with non Hispanics in the states, but I think it’s safe to say it will always be your own and you don’t care who likes it or not.

    1. 11:13 Mexican bands dress very stylish. The style is like '70's soul groups like the Chi-Lites, the Spinners and the Temptations, where all dress alike. At most US concerts, the band vies with the audience for the title of worst-dressed.

    2. Man corridos sound so bad though. It doesn't even sound in time at all

      Delete
    3. 22:54 the corridos are for la perrada that enjoys them.
      Snobs can always buy Ray Conniff or Herb Alpert and his Tijuana brass band.
      Texas Grandma used to dance to them in her youth, but evolved to real Mexican corridos, instead of that horrible Tejas sound.

    2. "At the time the police chief, Julian Leyzaola, was incensed that the group gave the shout out and banned the group from playing in their hometown and the state of Baja California"

      Clear if you read the entire article.

    3. Leyzaola accused Mario Quintero of being a narco, but never had the balls to arrest and torture him into confession, still doesn't
      Tijuana will allow tucanes play the some day,
      Leyzaola will Never walk again.

    4. Lt Col julian leyzaola peres used to be Mexican army, (trained with School of the Americas) and has a long career trying to be a police officer, but he is a Militar and an asshole accused of human rights violations, trying to impose Mando Unico all over the country to have them all stealing the Obama Food Stamp and having the victim cities pay tribute, piso and plasa.

    2. Indeed most of the mexican corrido musicians make their money on the Us. The corrido industry is in the US. The first narcocorrido was recorded in the US in the late 1920s. Also Carga blanca" in 1952; "contrabando y traicion" in 1972 (with Joe Flores) and in 1973 (with Los Tigres). It has all happened in the US.

    3. Corridos don't make money off gabachos on the US, it is all those Mexican "undesirables" doing what they do best:
      "Lo que les de su rechingada gana"

    4. I swear they push the issue with singers more then the criminals they sing about

      Delete
  10. "El Jefe De La Sierra " is one of the best corridos dedicated to the boss of all bosses El Señor Guzman .

    When my team is goimg on a mission we play it in our Secret Service type earpieces. It gets me pumped up for my dangerous missions in enemy territoty

    2. But doesn't that make your mission more dangerous when you can't hear your compadres communicating over the music? Such a stud, living on the edge like that.

    5. But what about the songs about his enemies? 006 with all that recon and intelligence training I’m sure you’ve had to come across “senor de la o”, “ el 42”, “Ramon Arellano”, “el patron” to name a few. What say you sicario, that’s one disloyal band foo 🤯
