Artísticamente la leyenda musical surgió hace más de 25 años en el Cerro de La Campana en Monterrey. Celso Piña trabaja con los ritmos tropicales como base, conjugándolos con todo tipo de géneros populares desde trova, son, hip-hop, ballenato, blues, rock, rumba, danzón, cumbia y bolero.

Se le considera unos de los mejores músicos de México y Latinoamérica, es también conocido como “El Rebelde del acordeón” o también como el “Cacique de la Campana”.

Su historia…
Celso Piña nació el 6 de Abril de 1953 en el Barrio Nuevo Repueblo al sur de Monterrey, Nuevo León, México.

Piña empezó tocando música regional desde hace ya mucho tiempo acompañado de sus hermanos Eduardo, Rubén y Enrique, juntos daban serenatas en el barrio a todas las chicas de la cuadra.

Fue en el año de 1980 cuando Celso Piña compra su primer acordeón para introducirse al mundo de la música vallenata, con largas horas de ensayo y esfuerzo, en la popular colonia Independencia, al sur de la ciudad de Monterrey, México. Para esta zona donde vivió mucho tiempo tiene una cumbia llamada Mi colonia Independencia, la que se ubica en la populosa zona del Cerro de la Campana en Monterrey.

A mediados los años 1980’s decidieron cambiar de estilo musical y comenzaron a tocar música tropical. Después de escuchar a los ilustres Aníbal Velásquez y Alfredo Gutiérrez durante un baile de cintas (reproducción de música mediante cintas), decidieron entrar de lleno a la música vallenata, y así formó su propia banda Celso Piña y su Ronda Bogotá.

Celso Piña es un autodidacto del acordeón, su estilo lo formó sólo a base de tocar y ensayar una y otra vez. De sus primeros inicios destacan varias cumbias como “la cumbia de la paz”, “Oye mi cumbia”, “Cumbia Campanera”, “Como el viento” y la muy afamada “La piragua”.

En la ultima década de su carrera, Celso ha venido experimentando con ritmos y fusiones de música de varios países, acompañado de amigos y colegas artistas, tales como, Café Tacuba, Control Machete, Bacilos, El Gran Silencio, Julieta Venegas, Ely Guerra, Benny, Lila Downs, Alex Lora, Lupe Esparza, Eugenia León, Aleks Syntek, Gloria Trevi, Laura León, Natalia Lafourcade, Nicho Hinojosa, Flaco Jiménez, Alejandro Markovich, Sargento García, entre muchos otros. Con esta incursión a la fusión de géneros ha logrado muchos reconocimientos, de la gente y los medios de comunicación.

A lo largo de 30 años ha grabado más de 28 álbums.

Celso Piña (born April 6, 1953) is a professional singer, composer, arranger, and accordionist[1] mainly in the genre of cumbia.

Celso Piña is a pioneer in the mixture and fusion of tropical sounds with many of his works having elements of musica norteña, sonidero, ska, reggae, rap/hip-hop, R&B, etc. Piña is also known as El Rebelde del acordeón or the Cacique de la Campana.

Piña started playing music in his small town with his brothers Eduardo, Rubén and Enrique. Together they would go to several homes and perform for local citizens, especially teenage girls from their neighborhood.

In 1980, Celso Piña bought his first accordion and was introduced to the world of cumbia. He spent numerous hours of practice and work in the popular district of Colonia Independencia, south of the city of Monterrey, Mexico. Having lived for a majority of his life there, he titled one of his songs Mi colonia Independencia, which is located at the heavily populated area of Cerro de la Campana at Monterrey.

Piña's group decided to change their musical rhythm to encompass a more tropical style during the mid-1980s after having seen Aníbal Velásquez and Alfredo Gutiérrez in concert at "Baile de las Cintas (reproducción of música mediante cintas)". The group decided to switch into the genre of cumbia, and became what today is Celso Piña y su Ronda Bogotá.

Piña taught himself how to play the accordion with no formal training. As a result he was able to create the unique sound he is well known for. His most popular songs include, La cumbia de la paz, El tren, Como el viento and La piragua. José Barros was featured in the song Sufran con lo que yo gozo along with Mexican singer Gloria Trevi.

Celso has done several successful international tours that included countries as Germany, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Czech Republic, Italy, France, Morocco, Colombia, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Argentina, Chile, Canada and the United States.
Very Be Careful - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Very Be Careful
Adventure has never been a task for VBC. A Caribbean soul and a California heart have sustained a decade of ceaseless romp-downs and raucous times for L.A.’s vallenato veteranos, inciting 10s of 1000s of men, women, children, and even some wild animals, to boogie to the Colombian coastal beat. From the debaucherous streets of: Austin’s SXSW, and Germany’s WorldCupTour ’06; to the cultural pinnacles of: Chicago’s SummerDanceSeries, New York’s CentralParkSummerstage, Los Angeles’ GrandPerformances, Silver Lake’s SunsetJunctionStreetFair; colossal concerts: L.A. Sports Arena CumbiaFest, GlastonburyMusicFestival UK, and FujiRockFestival Japan; clubs and hubs: N.Y.’s SOBs, L.A.’s HOBs, backyard BBQs, VeryBeCareful has tamed the beasts within or unleashed the ones without.

Bootlegged across Latin America, pumped at the clubs, and ripped on the radio and satellite stations of Japan, Argentina, Mexico, England, Belgium, Australia, Canada and the USA, VeryBeCareful forges ahead globetrotting alongside legends and antiheros: JoeStrummer, AlfredoGutierrez, Antibalas, CarlosVives, DubTrio, GrupoNiche, KronosQuartet, GogolBordello. Their infamous ten year traditions hosting old school “dances” for Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, Halloween and the legendary July 4th Brooklyn “Cumbia Under The Sparks” rooftop affair, has brought together people from around the globe itchin’ for those early roots sounds that prove a stripped down parranda is sometimes fiercer, and funner, than a bleedin’ riot.

Their latest cd, Horrible Club (Downtown Pijao 2009), is a collection of raucous bootleg recordings from 1998-2009 and captures the reckless abandon of a VBC show where anything can happen. From the 1998 Pinto Records’ El Niño (produced by Money Mark), 1999 De Volada Records’ Cheap Chillin, Downtown Pijao’s 2001 The Rose, 2002 El Grizz, 2003 film The Tooth (which stars the band), 2005 Ñacas, 2007 Salad Buey… to the raw wildness of Horrible Club, VBC flies that “booty-shakin’ firestorm” flag higher than ever!!
El Sonido Callejero - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
El Sonido Callejero
“El Sonido Callejero”
The band’s roots date back to September 2010, when Arturo “El Director” Hernandez (accordion / keyboards) and Armando (drums) conceived the idea of creating a totally energetic and danceable musical project.

As musicians of diverse roots and Mexican culture, they arrived to the United States to finish their ten song album. Currently, el Sonido Callejero has released one album self titled “El Sonido Callejero” (2011), one E.P titled “La Fuerza Humana” (2013), five singles “Quizas” (2014), “Vamos” (2014), “No te puedo olvidar” (2013), “La Fuerza Humana” (2012) and “Oye Mami” (2011) which are available now in Itunes, while one of their song titles ( El Monstruo ) from their first record has been released in Europe under “Ubersee Records”. Promotional tours are being booked all over Europe, Mexico, the US and Latin America to support the ongoing promotion of all releases.

The band is charged with latin rhythms, while rock, cumbia, norteñas and reggae influences, among others, flow through their veins and can be heard in their songs. 


Its catchy rhythms and interesting combinations continue to grow and develop at the heart of their sound. Presently E.S.C continues to be lead by Arturo ” El Director” Hernandez on accodion. Members include the latin flavor rhythms of Ozzie “El Matador” Garcia on percussions, the high energy bass of Edgardo “Ed” Velasquez accompanied with the rhythmic, hard hitting James Ramirez on drums, with newest members German Briseño on vocals and Greg Hernandez on guitars.
