Since their inception in 2001, Banda Canarval has wowed followers as one of the world's most exciting and energizing banda groups. With their awesome dance songs and romantic love ballads performed by dynamic lead singer Rafa with impressive backup band of brass mucians, this teen party group plays concerts that have fans up on their feet and dancing, as well as swooning to slow and romantic love songs. Banda Carnaval has released a slew of hits, popularizing the traditional Mexican music style with young Latin Americans, and their most recent album Las Vueltas de la Vida reached the No. 3 spot on the Top Latin Album chart in 2013.
In the 12 years since it was founded in Mazatlan, Sinoloa, Banda Carnaval has released five albums driven by horn backgrounds and pumped up with the cultural roots of Latin music — all of its tunes promising a good time for listeners. In 2013, Banda Carnaval went on tour with fellow Latin band, Calibre 50, and they blazed the audiences worldwide with their unique brand of refreshing Latin flavor, wowing attendees with a show they won't soon forget. Las Vueltas de la Vida, the group’s most recent release, was nominated for a 2013 Latin Grammy Award for the Best Album award. The album's single, "Y Te Vas," reached No. 1 spot on the Latin Regional Mexican Airplay chart. Banda Carnival has remained proud and true to its foundations, with its mariachi-inspired tunes that reflect the lush landscapes of Mexico, regardless of the trends followed by their other musical contemporaries. In the end, this is just the ticket for an audience that appreciates music that is rich in cultural history, as well as energizing, upbeat sound.
