Jorge Alberto Flores was born on November 10, 1989, in East Los Angeles. At an early age, he was fascinated by the music of mariachi and for this reason, began a musical career in Cocula, Jalisco–land of his parents and birthplace of the mariachi. At the age of 11, Jorge began studying in workshops offered by Mariachi Fletes. When he eventually returned to Los Angeles, he enrolled in his middle school mariachi ensemble and began playing the guitarron. While a student at Roosevelt High School in East Los Angeles from 2003 to 2007, Jorge performed with Mariachi Olimpico and as a result of many years of dedication and effort, he had the opportunity to be part of the best mariachi ensemble in the world–Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez. Jorge considers it to be a very great privilege to belong to this ensemble which he had admired since childhood.
