El Gran Silencio Background
El Gran Silencio first formed in Monterrey,
Mexico in the early '90s. A group of high school friends united due to their passion for music and decided to form their own
musical group, led by the lead singer Cano Hernandez. The group, which originally went by the name Zona del Silencio, produced
their first demo in 1993. The demo, titled Reino de las Sombras, started to pique the interest of fans in the local music
scene, and the group stepped on stage together for the first time shortly after. Guitarist Tony Hernandez and bassist Julian
Villareal also joined the group during this time, and the band started to define its own unique sound.
In 1995, El Gran
Silencio competed at Monterrey's Rock Contest and ended up beating out all of the other groups with their rock song "Payasos".
Drummer Ezequiel Alvarado came on board shortly after, completing the band's current lineup. Now a five-piece band, El Gran
Silencio worked on creating songs for their new EP, Dofos, which helped them gain the attention of record label EMI. Knowing
that they needed to make a huge move to further their career in music, the group moved to New York in 1997. Although the band
was a long way from their home, they flourished in New York, where they recorded their first record, Libres y Locos. This
1999 album featured their first major hit, "Dormir Sonado", and helped them establish a major Spanish speaking fan base all
over the world.
El Gran Silencio continued to release new music, much to the joy of their fans, and they also performed
at countless stages all across the country. In 2011, El Gran Silencio performed as the opening act at LA Rising in Los Angeles.
