Banda Sinaloense el Recodo de Don Cruz Lizrraga, often referred to as Banda el Recodo, was
founded in 1938; it has been under the direction of the Lizrraga family. Banda el Recodo has
performed with such popular artists as Juan Gabriel and Michael Concepcion.
The ensemble consists of four clarinets, three trumpets, a tambora, a bass drum with a cymbal on top, a
tarola, a snare drum, a tuba (Sousaphone style), three trombones, two alto horns (referred to as saxores
or amonias in Mexico), and two singers.
According to the 2013 court testimonies of the drug lord Jess Enrique Rejn Aguilar (alias El
Mamito), Banda el Recodo performed at several private parties held by leaders of Los Zetas drug cartel
for a sum of US$250,000. He also testified that the favorite musical group of Miguel Trevio Morales
(alias Z40), the former leader of Los Zetas, was Banda el Recodo.[1]

History
Banda El Recodo was founded by Cruz Lizrraga, a young musician who also gave it its current
appearance, including the setting, style, shape and number of current members that associated it with
the place of their origin, the State of Sinaloa on the Mexican Pacific. El Recodo was named after the
town Lizrraga was born in.[2]
