AboutEdit

The group was formed in December 2002 by Sergio Gómez, Oscar Zepeda, José Luis Corral, Jair Loredo, Armando Rodríguez, and two ex-members of Grupo Montez de Durango, Rafael Solís and Simon Valtírrez Valles.

It was in the town of Bensenville, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, where Sergio Gómez met Armando Rodríguez and Rafael Solís, who invited him to form a musical group to perform covers of hits from groups such as Los Yonics, Los Bukis, among others, but with the style and rhythm of the so-called Duranguense genre.

This musical project began in the basement of the house of Armando and Rafael, along with Sergio who at that time worked in a 'light club' and other groups of the Duranguense genre as sound engineer, forming K-Paz de la Sierra together.

K-Paz de la Sierra became well known in the United States in just the first two months of the band's debut. The company Procan Disa Records was its main speaker.[1]

The 7 refers to the number of members who left K-Paz.

Majestad de la SierraEdit

In the middle of 2008, 5 members separated and created a new musical group also of the Duranguense genre with the name of Majestad De La Sierra. The 3rd separation originated in a conflict with Juán Gómez brother of the deceased Sergio Gómez and with Beto Duran, because the latter canceled the recording of an album in Monterrey.

On January 29, 2009, K-Paz presented new members under the direction of Juan Gómez (brother of the deceased vocalist) Kompendo de la Sierra:

K-Paz de la Sierra continues forward. Because the success of the group has not been even a simple fashion, and the proof of it is shown in countries like Mexico, the United States, Spain, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador. K-Paz de la Sierra is a concrete phenomenon, of which only appear each time, and proof of them was their participation in the recording of the song and the classic video of Michael Jackson "We are the world", which in its Spanish version ( "We are the world") was designed and produced by Emilio Estefan, who extended the invitation to the group so that part of this project to help Haiti, for the earthquake suffered.

In this album K-Paz de la Sierra includes in its total unreleased tracks, one of them being the one that has been released as the first single and that is entitled "Ni se se ocurra". duet included in the production. But this one was special, since it was recorded next to Mr. Sergio Vega "el Shaka", thus being the last musical recording made by the singer of the band before his death.

This album has 10 songs that allow you to listen to songs by the composers of the likes of Horacio Palencia, Claudia Brant, Edgar Cortázar, Oswaldo Villarreal and Aaron Martínez, Sergio Caballero and Jair Loredo. From this album comes the second single titled "Me Tienes Embrujado", authored by Sergio Caballero and Jair Loredo. Reaching the first places of popularity in Mexico and the United States.

In 2011, K-Paz De La Sierra suffers a further break from his disciples Juan Gómez and Miguel Galindo due to mismanagement of the group.

In 2012 the group suffered another collapse, leaving their archives, Sergio Caballero (keyboardist) and Jair Loredo (drummer) for alleged salary debit by Felicitas. In October 2012 the group of Felicitas, launched "El Fuerte" and for May 2014 launched "En Esta Cantina".
