Duranguense is a hybrid successor of norteño music, combined with aspects of banda music, sped up, and with the addition of synthesizers. Believed to have originated with Grupo Montéz de Durango in the 90s, the genre became popular in the state of Durango, Mexico, before spreading across Mexico and among Mexican-Americans in the United States. Duranguense began appearing on Latin music charts in the 2000s. The genre combines the basic lyric format of norteño with the brass instrumentation of banda, while using synthesizers to convey the brass melody and the tuba bassline. Duranguense is typically performed at a higher tempo than norteño with a heavy and snare-ornamented percussion line.
