Mariachi los Camperos de Nati Cano is a Grammy Award-winning Los Angeles-based mariachi ensemble which was formerly led by Natividad "Nati" Cano.
In 1950, Nati Cano joined a mariachi band in the city of Mexicali, Baja California, as an arranger. Cano was younger than any of the other members at the time. The group later relocated to Los Angeles, California based out of a restaurant Nati founded as well, named "La Fonda de Los Camperos." Cano renamed the band, Mariachi los Camperos, meaning Countrymen.
The ensemble was one of four mariachis that collaborated on Linda Ronstadt's 1987 milestone album, Canciones de Mi Padre. They also appear on Ronstadt's sequel album, Mas Canciones, which was released in 1992, and toured with the singer nationwide.
Nati Cano died October 3, 2014 due to declining health, passing on the group to the current musical director, Jesus "Chuy" Guzman.
