Regulo Caro is a singer and songwriter of regional Mexican music who hails from Badiraguato in Sinaloa. He is currently based in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora. His songs have been recorded by a wide array of artists including Juli+¦n Alvarez, Los Bohemios de Sinaloa, Los Nuevos Rebeldes, Banda MS, Ra+¦l Hern+índez, and Los Buitres y Alfredito Olivas, to name a few. Caro formed his first band at 13, and at 16 began playing family events and regional gatherings. He gave up music for a time to attend college, where he received a degree in business administration. After graduating, he worked briefly, but his grandfather intervened and encouraged him to pursue music as a career.
Caro's initial break came after vocalist and cousin Gerardo Ort+¡z recorded a couple of his songs and brought him to the attention of Mexico's Del Records. The label signed him to a recording and publishing deal. M+¦sica Polvora y Sangre, his debut offering, appeared in 2011 to rave reviews and respectable chart success. Caro's alternative approach to writing gave his norte+¦o and banda tunes irresistible hooks and unusual tuba lines. His 2012 follow-up, Amor en Tiempos de Guerra, received massive radio airplay and charted in the upper echelons of the iTunes Regional Mexican chart. In August of 2013 he released his third album, Especialista, which entered the chart in the Top Five.
