El Poder Del Norte was created by young musicians Arturo and Martin Buenrostro. They dreamed of becoming famous grupera singers and called their band Hermanos Buenrostro. However, they didn’t become as successful as they hoped and in 1993, signed a deal with Disa (Discos Sabinas). The had to change the name to El Poder Del Norte (The Power of The North) since the rights to the previous name stayed with the old label. The new name was created by the Disa president Domingo Moreno.In 1993, the band recorded an album Mi decisión, which immediately became popular in Mexico thanks to the duo’s original style and Arturo Buenrostro’s beautiful voice. The songs “Tú Decisión”, “Llueve sobre mojado”, “Ahora que ya estas casada,” and “Cómo te extraño” became hits.
In 1994, the brothers released their second studio album, Cómo llama. It included such popular songs as “Piel de ángel”, “Te quiero tanto,” and “Solo te amo a ti”. The band was becoming more and more popular. It was tough to book El Poder Del Norte. Buenrostro brothers were too busy with their career to perform at any private events.
