Bio

Conjunto Primavera is a Mexican conjunto group from Ojinaga, Chihuahua.In the 1990s and 2000s they became one of the most popular groups in the genre. Conjunto Primavera was formed on the first day of spring in 1978 by the saxophonist Juan Dominguez.They remained a local act for several years, but starting in 1980, they signed with an indie label, Joey Records, in San Antonio, Texas.It was at Joey Records where Conjunto Primavera would not only record popular covers such as "La Sirenita", "Paloma Querida", and "Noches Eternas", but subsequent fan favorites such as "Borracho Y Loco", "Cuatro Primaveras", and "10 Kilometros."However, the group was still far from popular.Starting in the mid-80's, Conjunto Primavera would start recording romantic ballads with saxophone and electric keyboard, a style that the norteño group would become known for in the years to come.Another major change took place in 1988 when lead singer Nacho Galindo announced he was leaving the group to become a Christian artist.Not long after, Tony Melendez takes the position at 18 years old and starts to take the group into a new direction.To further their success, Conjunto Primavera signed a new contract with AFG Sigma Records in 1993 and recorded their first major success Me Nortie; not long after, AFG was bought out by Mexican label Fonovisa.Since their first release on Fonovisa in 1996, the group has released several gold-selling albums and has been nominated for many Latin Grammy awards.In 2008, the group received the Billboard Latin Music Lifetime Achievement Award.In 2014, at the 15th Annual Latin Grammy Awards they were awarded the Latin Grammy award Best Norteño Album for their album Amor Amor.
