Every October, Fonovisa issues its Radio Éxitos compilation of regional Mexican music. Not surprisingly it almost always contains artists nominated for Latin Grammy awards. But even those who aren't qualify for the comp because of the airplay they've received and/or sales they generated, making it, as far as the label goes, a true showcase of hitmakers. 2103's roster is no different. Among the Grammy nominees are la Arrolladora Banda el Limón de René Camacho and Voz le Mando (competing for artist of the year), Joan Sebastian, Noel Torres, Banda Los Recoditos, and Roberto Tapia. Other notable artists here include Código FN, Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizárraga, el Trono de México, and Banda Carnaval, to name a few. Twenty tracks strong, this is a solid representation of what occurred in regional Mexican music in 2013.
