Biography

A major star in regional Mexican music, singer Lalo Mora, Sr. has recorded some excellent banda albums along the way but has made accordion-powered norteño his primary focus — first as a member of the popular los Invasores de Nuevo León from 1980-1993, and more recently as a solo artist. Mora is highly regarded for his expressive performances of ranchera songs and his mastery of corridos (narrative folk ballads that have been an important part of regional Mexican music for generations), and his repertoire has included original material as well as Mexican standards.

Born Eduardo Mora Hernandez in the Mexican state of Nuevo León, Mora began singing at the age of four — and by the time he was in his mid-teens, he was earning some money singing in local bars, restaurants, and clubs. Mora started using Lalo Mora as his stage name as a teenager, and it was also during his adolescent years that he enjoyed a small local following as half of a vocal duo called Lupe & Lalo (which also included singer Guadalupe Mendoza). Mora got a major break in 1980, when he was invited to join the norteño group los Invasores de Nuevo León as a lead vocalist. Los Invasores de Nuevo León were a new group at the time but went on to become a big name in regional Mexican music, and their success brought Mora a great deal of exposure in both Mexico and the United States. In 1993, Mora left los Invasores de Nuevo León to become a full-time solo artist (he was replaced by Isaías Lucero, who was replaced by Rigoberto Marroquín four years later in 1997).
