Los Toros have recorded a total of three albums with their latest entitled "Amigo Mariachi" released in August of 2009.  

With the experience Mr. Parra has gained over the years performing with the best mariachi's in the world, it drives him to compose music with a new, fresh style and edge which he considers "La Nueva Era del Mariachi". Mariachi Los Toros have been performing with Pacifico Dance Company for over 4 years and continue to keep the color and spirit of Mexico alive.
