At 22 years of age, Chato – as fans and friends like to call him – is one of the most brilliant and disarmingly honest young artists in the ever crowded Regional Mexican field. The lead vocalist and principal songwriter with trio Marca MP, Chato excels within a style that would be best described as regional urbano.

Marca MP comprised by: Chato (vocalist and guitar,) Omar Valdivia (guitar,) and Ernesto Franco (tuba) plays romantic songs and old fashioned corridos but with a daring aesthetic - pared down to a backing of guitars, bass and a solitary tuba. The banda sonics shine brightly in this minimalist framework, generating an intense musical experience.

Marca MP’s music is universal, this is an apt description for music that has reached the hearts of individuals of all ages who identify themselves with their lyrics, considering the group's rapid rise to garner millions of streams and followers.

Currently, Marca MP is preparing to embark on their 2024 "Simplemente Marca Tour" through Mexico and the United States. In addition, the band presents their most recent album titled LEALTAD, a collection of 10 songs, 7 of which Chato (lead singer and harmony of the group) wrote. You can now listen to LEALTAD on your favorite music platform and watch the official video "Lealtad" on Marca MP’s YouTube channel.
