The Los Angeles Azules is a family music group of the Mejia Avante family consisting of siblings Elias, Alfredo, José Hilario, Jorge, Cristina, and Guadalupe. In Mexico, the group represents innovative music style as they push to bring a culturally significant music genre to the contemporary audience and keep it alive for the future. This genre is cumbia, a music genre tied to Latin folklore characterized by percussion-dominated tunes. The group created a space of creative improvement using the cultural genre by pioneering one of its subgenres called Cumbia Sonidera. The subgenre is known for its colorful sound produced by the instruments guacharaca, organ, and electronics. Since 1980, they have been the genre's leading performers and continue to do so for the following years. This achievement is a considerable feat, leading them to be named the band that upholds "future Cumbia."

They entered international popularity for the album "Inolvidables" or Como Te Voy A Olvidar," receiving platinum certification in Argentina, where they constantly performed. As the 2000s came, the band became unstoppable. They have reached the US shores with their music as their 20th anniversary came.

In 2002, they released "Alas al Mundo," which received a top six placement on the Latin charts. After years of touring and composing songs, the rerecorded "Cómo Te Voy a Olvidar" in 2013. This album would revive their glory days. This album was followed by "Viernes Cultural," which broadened their reach to Cuba and Caribbean countries.
