Hailing from Fort Wayne, Indiana, rising Mexican trio Los Aptos has captured the hearts of millions of listeners around the world with striking tunes that speak to the extensive complexities of life and love. And with the band’s members yet to enter their 20s, they’re only getting started.
The cutting-edge group began to take shape when friends Juan Ortega and Jonathan Rivera started playing music together as juniors in high school. Inspired by the musical innovation ofthe new stars of the exploding regional urban movement, in 2019 they decided to start postingcovers of hits by popular acts such as Junior H, and that decision quickly proved to be fruitful, bringing the pair significant attention online. Not long after sharing their first cover, the duo quickly went viral, and by 2020, Los Aptos was officially born.
Los Aptos only further solidified its already phenomenal stage presence while serving as a guest act on DannyLux’s 2022 Limerencia tour in the United States. The group is currently working on its highly anticipated new album, set to release in March 2023.
