Trío Calaveras is a Mexican guitar and vocal trio, notable for its performances and recordings with pop singer Jorge Negrete.

History[edit]

Calaveras, translated from Spanish to English, is the plural form of "skull." In Mexico, "calavera" also means "cool casanova."

The original members of the trio in the 1930s were Guillermo Bermejo (died 2002), his brother Miguel Bermejo (died 1996) and Raúl Prado (died 1989),.[1] Guillermo Bermejo would leave the Trio and move to Argentina in 1945, and Miguel his brother, would replace him by Pepe Saldivar (died 1975). Prado had been briefly married to María Félix.
