Text in englischer Sprache verfügbarUlices Chaidez y Sus Plebes is a chart-topping 21st century Mexican Regional trio led by Sinaloan singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ulices Chaidez. Their repertoire consists of original and traditional corridos, bandas, and rancheras. Since emerging in 2016 with Andamos el Rudeda, they have issued a clutch of charting singles and albums including Brincale al Toro, 11:11, and 2020's widely celebrated Seguimos en el Ruedo. The band hails from Navolato, Sinaloa; its name an homage to Chaidez's great hero, leader Ariel Camacho of Los Plebes del Rancho. Chaidez has been playing music since he was five. Besides guitar and requinto, he plays fife, bass, and drums, and studies accordion and violin. He worked solo with another group of guitarists while in high school (Ulices Chaidez y Sus Humildes), playing festivals and talent competitions locally and regionally. A Del Records executive caught one of their YouTube videos and signed the young singer when he was 15. His trio was formed with the same instrumentation as Camacho's group. Ulices Chaidez y Sus Plebes issued their first single, "Andamos en el Ruedo," in August 2016. It went straight to the top spot on several Latin Songs charts; the band was profiled in Billboard and its video received over a million views. Their debut full-length, also titled Andamos en el Ruedo, was issued in October and peaked at number three on the Top Latin Albums chart, spending 92 weeks there. The group's sophomore effort, El Elegido, arrived the following year and peaked at five. They then shifted tactics a bit for 2018's Brincale al Toro, utilizing electric guitars and requinto alongside tuba, bass, and percussion. Released digitally, it topped the Mexican Regional streaming charts for ten consecutive weeks. After touring Mexico and the southwestern United States for months, they issued the live Marcando Di Historia in 2019. The following year, 11:11 utilized acoustic and electric instrumentation (including pre-programmed trap beats and horns) and topped the streaming charts. Confined due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Ulices Chaidez y Sus Plebes spent the year recording. They realized a dream project by collaborating with singer Jose Manuel for Homenaje a Ariel Comacho, and released the unplugged, live-in-studio Amor y Dolor, before closing out the year with Seguimos en el Ruedo in December.
