The award goes to solo artists, duos, or groups for releasing vocal or instrumental albums containing at least 51% of new recordings in the banda music genre.
The award was first presented to Banda el Recodo for the album Lo Mejor de Mi Vida at the 1st Latin Grammy Awards ceremony in 2000. They are the most awarded band in this category with seven wins out of nine nominations and are followed by Los Horóscopos de Durango, the first and so far only non-Mexican performer to win, and Joan Sebastian each with two wins.
