    Born Gabriel Siria Levario, Javier Solis became
    known as one of the most recognized Mariachi solo
    artists in Mexico. Coming from humble beginnings,
    at a young age Solis had to drop out of school to
    help support his family. He trained as an amateur
    boxer for six years with aspirations of turning
    professional, but quit after his father urged him to
    choose a more "decent" career. The young man
    used to sing in local competitions for small prizes
    (such as a pair of new shoes), but was eventually
    banned from participating because he so dominated
    the competition.
    At age 16, Solis went to Puebla, Mexico to sing with
    Mariachi Metepec, but it wasn't until years later
    when Julito Rodriguez and Alfredo Gil of the trio Los
    Panchos heard him singing at a local bar that he
    got his first break as a recording artist. They took
    him to audition with CBS records where he signed a
    recording contract and cut his first album in 1950.
    His first hit, "Lloraras," came two years later and
    prompted his producer Felipe Valdes Leal to give
    him the name Javier Solis. The vocalist came to
    international acclaim in 1957, making appearances
    in the United States, Central, and South America.
    Solis was the first to sing songs in a style now
    known as "Boleros-Rancheras." He sang boleros
    typically associated with trio music but now
    accompanied by mariachis, also adding waltzes and
    tangos to his repertoire as a prolific interpreter of
    many styles of music.
    Not content with simply performing as a recording
    artist, Solis began his acting career in 1959; filming
    more than 20 movies with stars such as Maria
    Victoria, Lola Beltran, and Luis Aguilar. Javier Solis
    died in 1966 at age 33 from complications resulting
    from gall bladder surgery, leaving behind a brief
    but memorable musical legacy.
