Banda Los Recoditos is a Mexican Banda formed in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. It was founded in 1989 by friends and family members of Banda el Recodo by Cruz Lizárraga. Alfonso Lizárraga and Pancho Barraza, the first vocalists, were two of the more than dozen bandmembers comprising the original incarnation of the band. After releasing several albums, in 2010 the band released their album ¡Ando Bien Pedo!, featuring the single of the same title, which became a number-one hit in the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.
In 1998 Alfonso Lizárraga member of Banda El Recodo come one fit them the name so that the band was forced to change their name to Banda Vuelta De Río. This band recorded three albums with Musart and some members returned to Recoditos, the actual band.
There has been some opposition to the current band because most of the original members still belong to the band Vuelta De Río. Although the current band plays the hits of the original musical group, there are arguments that there actually only is one version of the original band.
BANDA LOS RECODITOS... NOMINATED IN TWO CATEGORIES- LATIN GRAMMY 2016 The Band is nominated in two important Regional Mexican categories with their album "ME ESTÁ GUSTANDO." The award ceremony will take place November 17, 2016 at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The music of Los Recoditos is like most Bandas Sinoalenses, featuring vocalists harmonizing to a third and high horn hits in the background. The band often uses the I-vi-IV-V chord progression (known by the 50s Progression). The meter is usually a 3-4 or a 4-4, but 6-8 or a hemiola between 3-4 and 6-8 is not uncommon.
