Los Creadorez del Pasito Duranguense is a Chicago project headed by the internationally known Alfredo Ramírez Corral. In 1996, alongside co-founder Ismael Mijarez, Corral put together one of the very first stateside duranguense groups, and achieved great success. DISA Latin Music released two recently recorded singles, "Que Lastima" and "Quisiera Ser una Lagrima," both of which made appearances on the Billboard regional Mexican charts. Los Creadorez interpret their decade of success and fans' acceptance of their new package as a sign of duranguense's staying power. As the genre rounds its first ten years, sales increases and interest arise far outside the city of Chicago, and duranguense artists look to the veterans for direction. Corral and Mijarez — having been around as long as anyone — find themselves in the position of being trend-setters. Los Creadorez's debut record, Recio, Recio Mis Creadorez, was released in late January 2007.

On February 23, 2007, they won Best New Artist at Premios Lo Nuestro and also they performed at the Billboard Music Awards of 2007; they were nominees for Regional Mexican Airplay Track of the Year for "Que Lastima". They have been performing on several sell-out arenas and stadiums in United States. On a signing meeting they congregated eight thousand people. In November 2008, they were nominated for a Latin Grammy for their album, "Listos, Montados, Y Armados".
