Education and early life
Edwin was raised alongside his three older brothers in Monterrey, by their late father Don Miguel Luna, perhaps known better as ‘El Gorrion’, who was half of the famous music duo El Palomo y El Gorrion; the name of Edwin’s mother remains undisclosed.
He was around six when he became passionate about music, and eight when he performed live for the first time, after his father brought him onto the stage. Edwin then spent several years hating music, mostly because his family forced him to sing at parties and family gatherings; he became interested in it again while attending a local high school, and was 15 when he joined his first band. Edwin changed a couple of bands in the following years, including Piricuaco Band, Virgilio Canales y Liberacion, and Banda Sinaloa.
He matriculated in 2006, and then focused on music rather than enrolling at college.
It was in 2010 that Edwin and former members of the band La Real Banda Chilera founded the new band Banda la Escandalosa; they signed to Remex Musi in October of the same year, however, the year 2011 saw most of the members quit to work on other projects.
This led Edwin to invite various new members, and they changed their name to Banda la Trakalosa de Monterrey. Their debut single “Despues de Ti No Hay Nada” came out in June 2011 and reached the top 20 on several Mexican charts; the band’s following single “San Lunes” was released in November, and topped the Northern Mexico Radio Chart. They then also backed El Pelon del Mikrophone on their hit song “La Cumbia Tribalera”.
Banda la Trakalosa covered the song “Doble Vida” by Salvador Aponte in 2012 and it topped various Mexican charts; the band’s compilation album was released by the end of the year, and their studio album “De Monterrey a Sinaloa” followed in the first half of 2013.
The lead single “Broche de Oro” from their second album “La Banda Grande de la Sultana del Norte” was released in 2014, and Banda la Trakalosa then collaborated with Tierra Sagrada on their new album “Reto de Exitos ReMex”. Their compilation album “Asi Cantaba Mi Padre” followed in 2016, and the year 2017 saw them release two albums: “Mi Otro Yo” and “10+10”.
In 2019 they released their album “Me Hicisite un Borracho”, since when they haven’t released any new music but have performed all around Latin America.
