About T3r Elemento

T3r Elemento is a Mexican Regional quartet who hail from Los Angeles County and Las Vegas, Nevada. Their videos and digital singles reflect a youthful (some members are still in their teens) take on the alternative corrido movement. The group was founded by then-14-year-old singer Kristopher Nava, Felipe Prieto on requinto, Sergio Cardenas on electric guitar and tuba, and accordionist Zeus Gamez. Inspired by Gerardo Ortiz, Regulo Caro, and many other alterna-movimiento artists, the quartet assembled in 2015 and shortly afterward began performing the party and high school circuit with covers of narco and traditional corridos from of the Culiacan, Sinaloa tradition. They released live videos to YouTube and homemade digital singles to various streaming and download services. The many posts of their live shows on YouTube prompted the A&R executives at Parra Music to sign them. Their 2016 debut album for the label was a live offering entitled Rafael Caro Quintero en Vivo (named for the Guadalajara Cartel founder) and assembled a host of covers and originals. The studio recording of "Rafo Caro" was issued in July 2017 as the first offering from their first studio full-length, Underground, issued in November. The single placed at 44 on the Top Latin Songs chart. Live set Underground (En Vivo) arrived in 2018, followed by The Green Trip later that November. ~ Thom Jurek
