Formed in 2018 and based in California, Regional Mexican group MARCA MP embraces the sounds of banda, mariachi, and ranchera. Their 2019 debut single "El Güero," a collaboration with Grupo Firme, was the most watched online video in Mexico that year. Since that time, they've independently issued five digital-only live albums, the studio-recorded Flores EP, and the studio long-player No Me Quejo.
The quartet of high school friends formed this group which included lead vocalist Pedro Vargas (aka "El Chato"), tuba player Esteban Salcedo, and guitarists Cristian Daniel and Jesús Tizoc. They gigged at private and street parties in southern California, played invitation-only concerts and weddings, and toured locally and regionally opening for groups playing in northern Mexico.
They issued their debut EP En Vivo in 2019 and the set included "El Güero." Mexico's Grupo Firme had played gigs with the band and decided to cut the track as a video single and asked Marca MP to collaborate. In Mexico it registered as the most-watched online video that year.
Marca MP continued to record their shows and also issued the live digital long players Despegando El Vuelo and En Vivo Desde el Maelcon: Sold Out in 2019.
In early May of 2020, the quartet independently issued its studio long-player No Me Quejo; they followed a week later with the live outing Las Preferidas, Vol. 2 (En Vivo). In July they released the studio-recorded Flores EP to critical acclaim. The set registered on streaming charts across platforms and marked the group's final recordings with Daniel and Tizoc; they were replaced by guitarists Diógenes Bojórquez and Julio Torres in early August when they issued Las Preferidas, Vol. 3 (En Vivo).
In November, the quartet released the live Desde el Cantón, and on New Year's Eve, they released Las Preferidas, Vol. 4 (En Vivo).
