Ulices Chaidez may only be 16 years old, but he's already making waves in the Latin music industry with his band Ulices Chaidez y Sus Plebes. The up-and-coming singer from Sinaloa, signed by DEL Records, joins the new generation of Mexican Regional acts saying he was inspired by his father and grandfather to start doing music.
"At age 6, I started playing the drums," Chaidez tells Billboard. "My father and grandfather were musicians as well, so this was in my blood."
Banda music and corridos also run through his blood, the type of music his hometown is known for. "When I started playing, I actually explored other genres, but I knew right away that it wasn't me or my style," he says. Chaidez recently premiered his first single, "Andamos en el ruedo," which is currently at No. 11 on the Regional Mexican Digital Songs chart (dated Aug. 13).
