Agustín, a native of the State of Guanajuato, specifically from San Francisco del Rincón, summoned his brothers to form a musical group together, and that is how Bernardo, Horacio, Brígido (deceased) and Martín (deceased), began the story of ” Los Caminantes Aztecas”, which was later simplified to “Los Caminantes”.

Brígido was the group’s songwriter, who in 1982 recorded “Supe Perder” and “Para qué qué tú tú Volver” together with his brothers, the same songs that became their greatest hits and that not only opened the doors to the interior of the Republic, but they took them around the world on monumental tours.

Among his songs we remember great pieces such as Ven y abrázame”, “Cuando dos almas”, “El Puente roto”, “Ay, Palomita”, “Tu nuevo cariñito” o “Dos cartas y una flor”, among many others, quickly becomes the favorites of the public with romantic tastes.

Their success was such that they became the first band to fill the Zócalo in Mexico City, and later many others would match their feat. They also toured the United States, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, among other stops in Latin America.
