El Komander Schedule
El Komander has served as a key figure in Mexico's alternative movement. The singer is a purveyor
of this original form of banda that digs into the yarn-spinning tunes and ballads that chronicle the realities of kingpins.
His narcocorrido ballads have roots that run all the way back to the 1930s and frequently reference true places and events
in their overt accounts about the unrest in the world of drug trafficking.
His sound is entrenched in the norteno folk
corrido tradition, with his seductive voice soaring above the accordion-fueled polka background, which is supported by tuba,
trumpet, drums and guitar. The result is a live show filled with energy and excitement.

El Komander Background
Rios, better recognized worldwide by his El Komander moniker, hails from Sinaloa, Culiacan. Rios learned about the Mexican
time-honored styles of nueva cancion, mariachi, banda and cancion. He entertained in his hometown, where his expressive and
outrageous style spiked the interest of label talent scouts. He also performed boisterous tunes that pioneered the alternative
movement of the Latin culture. Rios' first album was En Vivo!-Desde-Badiragato!(2006). His next release was El Katch (2009),
which featured the track, "Nomas por Ser Sinaloense." His sophomore album turned out to be a hit, fueled by Rios' demanding
touring schedule and support from radio airplay. Archiv Privado followed in 2010 and Y Seguimos La Borrachera arrived in 2011.
A year later Desde Zapopan (En Vivo) dropped, which came out again in 2013 with extra tracks.
Today, El Komander continues
to maintain an exhaustive tour schedule, taking his authentic brand of music to stages internationally. El Komander is a true
ambassador responsible for keeping these traditions alive.
El Komander Albums

El Komander Trivia
El Komander's concerts are often surrounded
by controversy. A concert promoter was penalized for $8,000 (10,000 pesos) for a an El Komander concert held in July 2013
in Chihuahua, Mexico. El Komander denied accountability declaring, "El Komander goes everywhere because he loves rule; the
rules of every city, of every state, of every entity. If they tell us 'don't sing this,' we don't sing it. We have a lot of
songs to sing and have fun with, and who doesn't like us doesn't like us, but we play by the rules because we want to be able
to sing anywhere." Later on, he said in an interview with Univision News that he had gone over his set with the promoter.
"There must have been some misunderstanding," El Komander stated. He also added that, "My music does not carry messages. It's
pure Regional Mexican music."
