Rising regional mexican band, Los Plebes del Rancho de Ariel Camacho, debut at #1 on the Latin Albums and Regional Mexican albums charts with their new album RECUERDEN MI ESTILO. Currently, the band has 4 out of the Top 5 songs on the Regional Mexican chart on iTunes and the videos for the first three album singles which include “Del Negociante,” “No Lo Hice Bien” and “Que Caro Estoy Pagando” have surpassed 55 million views on YouTube. The first single, “Del Negociante,” reached Top 15 of Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.
Omar, Cesar, and the DEL Records family continue to honor and celebrate Ariel, and as a tribute to him, the band is now called: Los Plebes del Rancho de Ariel Camacho. After an exhaustive search to find a new member for the group, Angel Del Villar, CEO of the Del Records discovered the young and talented Jose Manuel Lopez Castro (18 yrs old), through his Instagram account where he frequently uploaded videos interpreting Ariel’s songs. Since then, José Manuel has grown into a great musician and artist, and he’s not only the lead singer of the group, but like Ariel, plays the requinto.
In 2013, Ariel Camacho – known for his unique requinto playing style – along with his friends Omar Burgos and Cesar Ivan Sanchez formed the band Ariel Camacho y Los Plebes del Rancho, and soon after they started touring in the US and Mexico and their songs reached the TOP of the charts.
Their first album under DEL Records, released in 2014 was titled EL KARMA and was certified Gold by the RIAA. The album was nominated for a Latin Grammy in the “Best Norteño Album” category, and the hit singles “El Karma,” “Te Metiste,” and “El Rey de Corazones” all reached #1 in several charts including Billboard, iTunes and Monitor Latino.
“It has been exciting to see the success of our work,” says Sanchez. “But it’s also bittersweet because Ariel is not with us anymore. In every song, every concert, we honor him. We miss him.”
