Chino & Nacho is a Venezuelan pop duo, consisting of Jesús Alberto Miranda Perez (Chino) (born November 15, 1984) and Miguel Ignacio Mendoza (Nacho) (born August 22, 1983). In 2010, the group won the Latin Grammy Award under the category of Best Urban Music Album for their album, Mi Niña Bonita.
Calle Ciega: The first appearance
Before making a duo, Chino and Nacho were both part of a boy band Calle Ciega. That was where they started their musical career, and released five albums, and had their hit single, Mi Cachorrita. They gained a lot of airplay in Venezuela and surrounding countries. The group fought for having more publicity than other Venezuelan groups like 3 Dueños and others, and Calle Ciega had the most airplay.
The group had musical genres, though most reggaeton, and liked to mix salsa and merengue with reggaeton. The group later stopped releasing singles, and eventually ended up breaking up into what is now Chino & Nacho and Los Cadilacs. Chino y Nacho created their first album debut nationwide in the year 2008, becoming known in their country: Venezuela.
The start of the duo
Their first album, named "Época de Reyes", was finally released; it was available in many Latin American countries, and got on many shelves in stores.
