Biography

Following in the footsteps of his father Antonio Aguilar and mother Flor Silvestre (both music and movie legends in Mexico), Pepe Aguilar's mix of rock, pop and mariachi styles have made him a Grammy Award-winning star of Latin music. Born in Texas but raised in Zacatecas, Mexico, Aguilar first started performing at his parents' concerts when he was just three before forming prog-influenced groups in his teens. With the market for Spanish-language rock bands limited during the late 1980s, he turned his attention to the more traditional form of Mexican folk music known as ranchero and released album Recuerdame Bonito in 1992. Wearing a sombrero and charro suit, he delved fully into mariachi on Que Bueno with Rigoberto Alfaro arranging his songs and landed huge success with Por Mujeres Como Tu in 1998, which sold over two million copies and spent a year in the Latin charts. Por Una Mujer Bonita won him his first Grammy Award in 2000 and he paid tribute to the great Latin artists who had influenced him on Lo Grande Los Grandes before becoming the first Mexican artist to perform at the Hollywood Bowl in 2002. He went through tough times with the deaths of his father and former colleague Jenni Rivera and the kidnapping of his wife, but bounced back with a highly acclaimed performance on MTV Unplugged in 2014.
