Joel Higuera Died: How Did Founder Of “Los Tucanes de Tijuana” Die?
The members of the Mexican regional group reported the death of the former accordionist and second voice of the band. Joel Higuera Acosta, who was the founder and part of Los Tucanes de Tijuana, died this Wednesday, December 30, the victim of a heart attack, as reported in a press release by Mario Quintero and the members of the Mexican regional group.
Through their official social networks, they lamented the death of Higuera.
“We inform the media and the entire musicians’ union with deep sadness and feeling the irreparable loss of our family member and former partner,” the band’s message reads.
According to his biography, the former member of Los Tucanes de Tijuana was born in Las Huacapas, Sinaloa, in 1965, so he was 55 years old.
Higuera Acosta, who served as accordionist and second voice of the famous Mexican group for more than 15 years, died in his native Tijuana, Baja California.
The late singer and musician suffered from health problems derived from his addiction to cocaine for years. Mario Quintero, the vocalist of Los Tucanes de Tijuana, attributed his conflicts with Joel Higuera Acosta and his departure from the group to the drug addiction he suffered since they began his career.
The relationship between them, who in addition to colleagues were first cousins, did not end well, as Higuera Acosta revealed in May 2018, when he denied his former partner in the group:
“Well, if he says so, only he knows why, no I’m going to talk about the others, but he took advantage of the moment to weave the web, to leave me out, Mario Quintero fell in love with money and forgot many things, he wanted to be the leader and keep everything,
“he declared for Primer Impacto.
The last days of 2020 have hit show business hard. On December 28, the singer and composer, Armando Manzanero, died after 11 days hospitalized in Mexico City after having been infected with covid-19. The interpreter of ‘Somos novios’ lost his life due to kidney complications.
The accordionist talked about how his addiction to cocaine caused health problems, especially in his nose.
Los Tucanes de Tijuana and Mon Laferte set the pace at Coachella 2019
Los Tucanes made everyone dance with ‘La Chona, and the Chilean singer fulfilled her song in English
The regional Mexican music group Los Tucanes de Tijuana, and the Chilean pop singer, Mon Laferte put the attendees of the Coachella 2019 music festival, which takes place in California, United States, to dance, and sing.
Both artists raised Latin American pride because with their presentations they left a good taste in the mouth of lovers of the most popular sounds around the world.
On the one hand, Los Tucanes de Tijuana, dressed in their typical costumes, boots, and hats, performed ‘La Chona’, one of their classic songs. The group put together the party in a big way until they cut their audio because they spent time. In response, people whistled with annoyance, because they wanted to keep moving to the rhythm of the Mexican band.
For her part, the Chilean Mon Laferte shone on the main stage of Coachella, where she was encouraged to sing melodies in English, a language she does not speak, but which, with the support of her cell phone, managed to rock with her interpretation. MM
