Mexican group los Angeles Azules was formed in the early '80s by brothers Elías, Jose, and Jorge Mejía Avante. Playing a Latin style known as onda grupera, the band became a chart-topping act after issuing Inolvidables in 1996, soon, achieving platinum status in Argentina where they successfully performed live in 1998. Later, singer Carlos Veises decided to leave the group, forming his own band called los Angeles de Charlie. In 2001, los Angeles Azules were nominated to the Billboard Latin Music Awards, that same year, touring the U.S. to celebrate their 20th anniversary. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
