El Fantasma


Mexican superstar El Fantasma is set to come to San Jose Civic, Friday, November 1. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster, Friday, May 17, at 10AM.


Known for his corridos, El Fantasma, nee Alexander Garcia, toiled as a gardener before becoming a charting recording artist for the Afinarte label. Interested in music since his teen years, he dropped his first single, “Mi 45,” in early 2016. Its video garnered over ten million views.

El Fantasma’s debut album, Equipo Armado, quickly ascended the Mexican airplay charts. He wasted no time, issuing three more albums during the calendar year: En Vivo Desde Badiraguato, Pa’ los Recuerdos, Vol. 1, and Vengo a Aclarar. A live version of the latter followed the next year rekindling interest in the studio album, earning it a No. 10 spot on the Hot Latin Albums chart in 2017.

Last year, El Fantasma partnered with the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation and Ford Motor Company to bring a massive donation to Sidney Lanier High School in San Antonio, Texas. Growing up in Mexico, he didn’t have the opportunity to study music and he saw the partnership as an opportunity to inspire future generations to pursue their musical dreams.
