In the small town of Zapata, Texas, a group of boys got together to play their instruments.

At the time, there were only dreams of what could happen, but little did they know, they’d become one of the biggest bands in Tejano music.

“We always knew we had a great sound. It was only a matter of time before people to catch on,” said Ricky Muñoz, lead singer of Intocable. “Growing up in Zapata made it that much harder. There are no radio stations, tv stations so that made us focus more on our music.” 

Chart-topping singles are now a frequent for Intocable, who have released multiple albums in both languages.

Collaboration with other major artists has not been left out. They have become the first band to work with Blake Mills and Don Was.

“We let the masters do their craft. We sat down to work with them and it was like going back to school. We learned,” said Muñoz. “Then we had Ramon Ayala come out and do chorus for us. That was something else.”
