Banda Carnaval are a regional Mexican band from MazatlÃ¡n, Sinaloa, whose teen-oriented banda style is heavy on cumbias and romanticas. Founded in 2001 by executive producer JesÃºs Tirado CastaÃ±eda, the band has well over a dozen members, most notably teen heartthrob Rafael Becerra (aka Rafa) on lead vocals. Banda Carnaval made their full-length album debut with Entre Suspiro y Suspiro (2001). Later albums such as Aqui Estamos (2009), El NÃºmero 1 (2011), and Maximo Nivel (2012) spun off a multitude of hit singles, among them "PÃdeme," "Olvidarte No SerÃ¡ Sencillo," and "El Mentiroso." ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
