Since its founding in 2005 in Morelia, Michoacán, the five gentlemen have been playing a wide variety of music without regard to genre:  Baroque and contemporary music, opera and blues, pop, movie soundtracks and folk music from Spain, Mexico, and other Latin American countries.  Combining their skills at fine classical chamber music, non-stop interaction with the audience, inborn showmanship and their inimitable Latin American charm, M5 concerts are unique musical-theatrical concert experiences.

As evidenced in their CD´s and live programs, M5 mixes the known with the unexpected – surprising, virtuosic and always entertaining. Metales M5 is Ensemble-in-Residence at Morelia’s Conservatorio de las Rosas, America’s oldest conservatory of music (founded in 1743).

The group has been touring the US and Canada extensively since 2008, made its South America debut in 2012 at the International Music Festival of Cartagena, Colombia and its Africa Debut in 2013 at the Festival International Culturel in Algeria. With more than 90 concerts in the US and Canada in 2012/13, METALES M5 is one of Mexico´s most active cultural ambassadors.
