Intocable is an American Norte�o musical group from Zapata, Texas that was started by friends Ricky Javier Mu�oz and Ren� Orlando Mart�nez in the early 1990s. In a few years, Intocable rose to the top of the Tejano and Norte�o fields with a musical signature that fused Tejano's robust conjunto and Norte�o folk rhythms with a pop balladry. Intocable is perhaps the most influential group in Tejano and their tough Tejano/Norte�o fusion has become the blueprint for dozens of Tex-Mex groups. The group's style, which combines romantic, hooky melodies, tight instrumentation and vocal harmony, is consistently imitated by other Tejano and Norte�o groups, including Im�n, Costumbre, Solido, Estruendo, Intenso, and Zinzero.
