Original Banda el LimÃ³n is one of the oldest groups in contemporary Mexican banda. Originating in the mid-'60s and led by clarinetist Salvador Lizarraga SÃ¡nchez, the 17-member band has featured many classic vocalists during its history, including Julio Preciado, JosÃ© Ã�ngel Ledesma ("El Coyote"), Jorge Cordero, Luis Antonio LÃ³pez ("El Mimoso"), and Nico Flores. Experienced fans know that the word "original" in the band's name refers to the fact that the original Banda el LimÃ³n split into two factions, one led by LizÃ¡rraga and the other (known as La Arrolladora Banda el LimÃ³n) led by RenÃ© Camacho, also a clarinetist. Throughout their history, the group has balanced old and new forms more than others; although their sound and arrangements are nothing if not traditional, they were one of the first banda artists to amplify and synthesize their sound. ~ John BushPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
