All Music Guide:

With their keyboard-driven Cumbias and airy pop sound, los Fugitivos dominated the onda grupera scene of the '90s. Brothers Jaime and Edi Espinoza formed the band in 1985 as Grupo Kariño. But in 1991, with the addition singer/keyboardist Roberto Nieto, the band became los Fugitivos. The band's first hits were covers, including "Esperando Por Ti," which was a Spanish-language version of Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting." In 1993 the band also scored an early hit with Jose Luis Perales' "La Loca," which landed them on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. In 1998 they had a hit with another cover, Roberto Carlos' "Pajaro Herido," which appeared on their album Secretos. In 1999 Nieto was replaced by Hekar Rivero, and that same year the band left PolyGram and signed with Sony Discos, who issued their album Mi Última Tentación soon afterwards.
