Accordion king Ramón Ayala, son of musician Ramón Cobarrubias, began playing his favorite instrument at a very young age. Inspired and supported by his parents, he performed in different public places to help his modest family. Ramón Ayala's first band experience was a group called Los Jilgueros de Marin; he later joined Los Pavoreales. After moving to Reynosa, the talented musician met Cornelio Reyna and formed Relampagos del Norte; the group soon made a self-titled debut album that featured the hit single "Ya No Llores." When Cornelio Reyna decided to leave the act, its name was changed to Los Bravos del Norte.
