Cumbia saxophonist Fito Olivares and his band La Pura Sabrosura – including his brothers Javier on vocals and Jaime on keyboards – were born and raised in Ciudad Camargo, Tamaulipas. Fito and his brothers relocated to Houston, Texas in 1977 and formed La Pura Sabrosura three years later. Fito enjoyed his biggest commercial breakthrough in 1988 with the hits “La Gallina” and “Juana la Cubana;” a year later the group returned with the very popular “La Negra Catalina,” followed in 1990 by “Aguita de Melon.” During the 1990s Olivares made the Billboard Latin singles charts 10 times; among those chart toppers were “La Ranita,” “Cupido Bandido,” “El Paso del Canguro,” “Juana Maria,” “El Colesterol,” “La Sabrosura Continua,” “Con Amor y Sabor,” and “A Gozar con Sabrosura.”
